About Vivani Medical, Inc.
Leveraging its proprietary NanoPortal platform, Vivani Medical develops biopharmaceutical implants designed to deliver drug molecules steadily over extended periods of time, with the goal of guaranteeing patient adherence to their medication. Vivani’s lead program, NPM-119, is a tiny, 6-month GLP-1 implant under investigation for the treatment of patients with Type 2 diabetes. NPM-119 can provide patients the opportunity to realize the full potential benefit of their medication while avoiding the hassles associated with the daily or weekly administration of oral and injectable products. Medication non-adherence occurs when patients do not take their medication as prescribed. This affects an alarming number of patients, approximately 50%, including those taking daily pills. Medication non-adherence is a primary reason why Type 2 diabetes treatments face significant challenges in achieving positive real-world effectiveness.
Vivani represents the August 2022 merger of Second Sight Medical Products, Inc., and Nano Precision Medical, Inc. NPM-119 is being developed within Vivani’s Biopharm Division (formerly Nano Precision Medical, Inc.). An IND for NPM-119 remains on track for filing around the end of this year to support initiation of a Phase 2 clinical study called LIBERATE-1. Vivani is also developing a portfolio of innovative, highly differentiated, new drug product candidates leveraging its proprietary NanoPortal implant technology, which has potential application across a broad range of compounds.
Vivani’s Neuromodulation Division (formerly Second Sight Medical Products) has developed, manufactured, and marketed implantable visual prosthetics that are intended to deliver useful artificial vision to blind individuals. Vivani is currently assessing strategic options for advancing Orion II, a visual prosthetic device designed to treat profound blindness.
