What are Corralling Amphipathic Peptide Colloids (CAPC™️)?
CAPC are an entirely new class of nanocarrier engineered from a naturally occurring peptide sequence found in a human heart channel protein. They allow for efficient encapsulation and improved cellular uptake of hydrophobic active ingredients. This allows small molecules with poor solubility and low cellular permeability to become viable drug candidates. CAPC also has surface binding capacity for intracellular delivery. The surface of CAPC allows for attachment of targeting moieties, ensuring active ingredients are delivered precisely to the cells where they are needed.
