Arecor is a biopharmaceutical company transforming patient care by bringing innovative medicines to market. Through the enhancement of existing medicines using our Arestat™ technology, we are developing a broad portfolio of therapies as part of our proprietary pipeline and through partnerships with leading pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Our treatments for people living with chronic disease are designed to simplify patient care and improve medication adherence.
Arestat™ is a world leading, innovative and proprietary formulation technology platform which significantly enhances the properties of approved therapeutic proteins and peptides. Arecor’s proprietary products leverage Arestat™ to enable improved treatments for diabetes including an ultra-rapid acting insulin for Type I diabetes and an ultra-concentrated (up to 100U/mL) rapid acting insulin, as well as a portfolio of undisclosed pre-clinical candidates. Our clinical programmes are significantly de-risked because we reformulate existing approved products with known safety and efficacy profiles.

For our partners, we use Arestat™ to deliver superior reformulations of their proprietary products, which would otherwise not be possible. We are a formulation technology leader having developed an innovative and proprietary formulation technology platform to enable superior biopharmaceutical products. This technology platform is applied to partner’s proprietary products under a licensing model and to Arecor’s internal diabetes product portfolio, which Arecor has applied to take into clinical development.
