About BioChemics, Inc.
BioChemics is a pharmaceutical company that has developed a novel, transdermal drug delivery system for the first time that may allow almost any drug to be efficiently delivered through the skin. The transdermal technology, called VALE® (Vaso-active Lipid Encapsulated), may allow a substantial portion of the pharmacopeia to be re-engineered, turning oral drugs into transdermals that are safer (no gastro-intestinal problems), cheaper and potentially faster acting (applied directly to the treated area) than oral equivalents. The company's focus is on multi-billion dollar market opportunities currently underserved by existing therapies. The company's two lead clinical products focus on treating diabetic peripheral neuropathy and osteoarthritis. Founded in 1989, the Company is headquartered in Danvers, Massachusetts.
