Evox Therapeutics has built a comprehensive intellectual property portfolio encompassing key aspects of EV-based nucleic acid and protein delivery technology. The exosomes technology developed could provide a way to clear the _blood-brain barrierÓ which prevents 98% of current drugs from reaching the brain, providing treatments to Alzheimers and many cancers.

In Dec 2017, Evox Therapeutics entered into a research collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim to investigate exosome-mediated delivery of RNAs to target specific disease areas. The financial considerations remain undisclosed. Upon completion of studies,Boehringer will have option to negotiate agreement to further develop RNA drug candidates using Evoxs technology.

In May 2016, EvOx Therapeutics raised £10m in Series A round from Oxford Sciences Innovation, supported by Invesco, Lansdowne Partners and Woodford Investment Management.
