MIJ invests in Blueberry Therapeutics Ltd.

MIJ is pleased to announce that we have recently invested in “Blueberry Therapeutics Ltd.”, a British life science start-up that has developed its own unique nano-formulation technology. Although many therapeutic drugs for treating skin conditions exist, until now there have been issues regarding the subcutaneous penetration of active ingredients. Blueberry Therapeutics’ “nano-formulation technology” has brought about a breakthrough that is expected to resolve these issues. The company is currently pursuing development of this technology as a means of treating onychomycosis (fungal nail), a common disease, and high expectations are held that in future it will be possible to apply this therapy to a broad array of illnesses and conditions such as acne and atopic dermatitis.
