Reasons to Invest

Current first-line treatment options have severe side-effects and can be toxic
Exciting technology with the potential to treat multiple diseases means expanding opportunities for new markets and the potential for growth
The potential market is $8B+ per year



“Our drug has the chance to forever alter the way these diseases are treated”



Many common life-threatening diseases like cancer require  dangerous treatments that have long lasting side-effects

Patients suffering from Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (HL), and Parkinson’s Disease (PD) are all faced with the reality of either no realistic treatment options or potentially harmful and painful treatments like chemotherapy or radiation.

We believe our early-stage drug shows immense promise in the treatment of these diseases

We are in the midst of clinical trials with our proprietary drug that will potentially be able to treat patients diagnosed with AML, HL, PD, and other projected diseases.



PhorMed's lead technology, RP-323, is a gene repair therapy

Unfortunately, these deadly diseases are ubiquitous

The world market for drugs treating HL is projected to post a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16% over the next four years. The same projections expect the market to reach $1.4B by 2024.


The CAGR of the AML market is expected to be around 14% over the next five years, and is expected to top $1.5B by 2024.


The PD therapeutics world market was valued at over $2B in 2016 and is expected to rise with a CAGR of 10.9% from 2017 to 2025.


Combined, the total annual market for three of our drug’s potential uses could reach close to $8B by 2025.


Our drug has been proven to be safe in early studies

Phase I Clinical Trial and safety study has been completed and has established the validity and effectiveness of our drug. We are satisfied that unlike the current treatment options, our drug’s side effects are non-threatening and short-lasting.


Next Clinical Trial is underway for AML, and protocols from our clinical site are currently under review.


Patients receive the drug via IV infusion

The drug is administered through intravenous infusion, with patients treated in 3-5 cycles. Each cycle is approximately one month in duration, with five treatments per week, followed by a two week rest period.


Treatment recipients are not required to remain in the hospital thanks to the limited side effects and unobtrusive nature of the drug.


Our financial directives are value driven creating multiple potential exit strategies for our investors

The company intends to create a number of exits, by licensing distribution rights, creating partnerships with pharmaceutical companies, and through an IPO.


Potential partnerships can be made for each indication within our pipeline creating separate and distinctive pathways to the market.


We focus on treating the disease rather than the symptoms

RP-323 utilizes gene repair therapy to target damaged or mutated cells, and repair a broad range of cell types. Most importantly the FDA has set a low threshold for us requiring only 35 patients and >20% efficacy. This allows us a greater chance of approval, less money to develop, and faster to market.

We are driven to fulfill unmet medical needs

Phase II Clinical Trials are targeted for completion in the next 2.5 years. During the same period, the goal is to complete multiple licensing deals with pharmaceutical and/or biotech companies. These major steps will precipitate expansion of our pipeline and the potential placement of multiple products in the marketplace. 


We anticipate that in the next 3-4 years our company will be able to take advantage of the growing market and help fulfill unmet medical needs.


We are experienced professionals with both industry and practical knowledge

Our CEO, McCoy Moretz, M.D., has been an Officer and Founder of multiple biopharmaceutical companies, has extensive experience as a keynote speaker across the world and has multiple publications, patents, and awards to his name.


Our Chief Scientific Officer and Inventor Professor Richard L. Chang has authored 122 peer-reviewed journal publications, filed multiple patents in the field of the treatment of cancer, infectious disease, hematology, and neurological disorder. He has over 50 years of research experience and was a Director of Research at Rutgers University.


Our other co-founders and advisory team are all similarly well-experienced in biopharmaceutical entrepreneurship in addition to extensive academic knowledge.


We believe our drug can make the lives of patients astronomically better

We have an opportunity to forever change the options facing patients suffering from these awful diseases. With treatment from our drug we believe these patients will be able to take back their lives, and won’t be saddled with long-lasting side effects, or be required to live in the hospital for weeks on end.


The company anticipates a clear path toward an open and ever growing marketplace. Through partnerships and a number of other possible exit strategies, we are confident in our potential and our ability to fulfill the markets need for new and safe treatment options.

This means eligible StartEngine shareholders will receive a 10% bonus for any shares they purchase in this offering.

How Will PhorMed’s Drug Help COVID-19 Patients

4 months ago


How It Works

With PhorMed’s expanded pipeline adding “Anti-Virus and Suppression of Pulmonary Inflammation” to help fight COVID-19, PhorMed’s drug RP-323 will help people with compromised immune systems.   PhorMed’s goal is to assist the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions by boosting their immune systems and preventing fatalities among those patients who have contracted COVID-19.   



RP-323 has the ability to activate the body’s defense system boosting White Blood Cells (WBC) which include T-cell, B-cells, interferon, cytokines, antibodies and more. In clinical trials over 90% of patients using RP-323 had elevation of WBC, which is the primary need of people fighting COVID-19.  


Thank you all and be well,

PhorMed Update March 6, 2020

5 months ago

Introduction

Although I have communicated with several of our investors on the Comment Board, I wanted to formally introduce myself. My name is Stuart Greene and I am the Director of Marketing and Business Development for PhorMed. It has been my pleasure to be welcomed as a part of the PhorMed family, and see the dedication to creating new treatment options for patients suffering from disorders where the traditional treatments like radiation and chemotherapy can be devastating in themselves, or where no real treatments are available in cases like Parkinson’s disease.

Clinical Site Announcement

I am excited to let you know that we are in final stages and have completed the legal review of our agreement with our clinical site. They are now working on the SOW and once that is completed, we will execute the agreement and will then announce their partnership. So please stay tuned for that announcement.

Campaign Status

Since the start of the campaign we were able to complete the initial raise of $107k, and subsequently increased our raise to the current $1.07m goal. Our campaign is ending in 5 days and we want to sincerely thank all of our investors and extend our gratitude for helping us to address these unmet medical needs. We look forward to continuing our efforts to offer hope for patients suffering from our targeted indications.

Thank you all and be well,

Stuart Greene
