Femeda is a UK based company focused on developing a range technically ground breaking medical devices for female urinary incontinence. 698 million women worldwide are affected by incontinence, yet many existing products focus on managing and treating the symptoms of urinary incontinence, rather than the underlying cause.
Femeda is focused on the launch of Pelviva™, a unique patented disposable medical device for the treatment of female incontinence. Pelviva™, uses reactive pulse technology to strengthen weak pelvic floor muscles to prevent leaks and control urge incontinence. Pelviva™ has been shown to clinically improve bladder control in 84% of women after 12 weeks of treatment.

Glythera is an early-stage Biotechnology company focused on the development of next-generation biologics, principally Antibody Drug Conjugates (ADCs) for cancer indications.
The Company’s ADC pipeline is based on an industry-leading, proprietary conjugation platform, ‘PermaLink’, which enables ADCs with higher therapeutic indices – a clear market need in fighting difficult-to-treat tumours. PermaLink is a cysteine-specific, non-maleimide approach that demonstrates significantly improved ADC conjugation stability and improved product homogeneity resulting in improved TI and patient safety profiles. Through PermaLink, Glythera is able to combine novel, highly potent toxins that induce apoptosis with novel antibodies that target cancer-specific antigens, especially those that are highly overexpressed in solid tumours.
The company is currently using its proprietary technology and access to a broad range of toxin payloads to develop a portfolio of class leading ADCs. Glythera is funded by IP Group and the North East Technology Fund and is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England
