EryDel

EryDel S.p.A. specializes in the development of drugs and diagnostics delivered through human red blood cells via a proprietary medical device technology.

Based in Milan, EryDel develops an innovative red-blood-cell-based drug delivery device for the treatment of rare neurodegenerative diseases. Its proprietary technology relies upon the encapsulation of drugs into red cells taken from the patient’s own blood which are then re-infused into the patient. The company is led by Luca Benatti, CEO, a serial entrepreneur who previously co-founded Newron Pharmaceuticals (NWRN). EryDel’s lead product, EryDex, has received Orphan Drug designation both from the FDA and the EMA for the treatment of Ataxia Telangiectasia (AT), a rare autosomal recessive disorder for which there is currently no established therapy.
