Glyciome® is a biomedical company creating first-in-class personal and urogenital care drugs and devices to diagnose, prevent and treat common infections and inflammatory diseases.
Glyciome is developing drugs and devices that will change genital care paradigms, in the clinic and at home. The products launched by our women-owned biomedical startup will reduce common genital bacterial infections that double the risk of costly diseases, such as preterm birth, human papillomavirus, and genital cancers (cervical, ovarian, and penile). Our patent portfolio uniquely leverages cutting-edge science in metabolomics and nanosensor-technology with our Founders’ established, human-centered product commercialization approach, to meet the demands of the $26B/yr global “personal” healthcare market.
Urogenital Health isn’t just about sex
Our proprietary product pipeline includes
Wouche Away® Prebiotic Total Body Cleanser
Our first Direct-to-Consumer launch, Wouche Away, is a prebiotic, total-body cleanser. This product was chosen as Idaho’s Top Innovative Consumer Product (2021), and recently passed a rigorous consumer product verification process.
The Biome Buddy System™ Prebiotic Hydrating Serum
Under Development in our Lab:
Prebiogyn® Cervical Cancer Prevention Prebiotic
Our current NCI-funded Phase 1 STTR and ICORP project is developing a prebiotic vaginal gel to treat vaginal infections and prevent cervical cancer for women in low-resource settings. Findings were presented at the 2022 Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research https://ascopubs.org/toc/go/8/Supplement_1 .
Our early-stage nanosensor-based, multiplexing diagnostic device (with University of Pittsburgh faculty) is being designed as a contextual eHealth app for patient self-sampling to detect changes in vaginal biomarkers and user-reported symptoms that occur with common vaginal infections (impacting at least 20 million Americans). Initial proof-of-concept for this approach was published in 2022 (doi: 10.1021/acs.analchem.1c04755).
