Its blockbuster drug platform has a lead asset in Phase 2, and the combined pipeline is targeting a global market opportunity in excess of $20 billion. Antibe’s commercial division in regenerative medicine is on a global growth trajectory in the dental biologics market.
Pursuing Blockbuster Drug Opportunities in Pain & Inflammation
Antibe Therapeutics is pursuing a major advance in the safe and non-addictive treatment of pain and inflammation. Our drugs are designed to prevent the widespread and serious gastrointestinal damage and bleeding caused by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (“NSAIDs”), today’s most widely used medicines for the relief of pain. The NSAID class of drugs includes prescription and over-the-counter (“OTC”) brands such as naproxen (Aleve), celecoxib (Celebrex), ibuprofen (Advil), and Aspirin.
Global NSAID sales exceed $11 billion annually, a massive market opportunity that could potentially be disrupted by Antibe’s H2S technology.
Building a Commercial Force in Regenerative Medicine
Antibe’s subsidiary, Citagenix Inc. (“Citagenix”), is a leader in the sales and marketing of tissue regenerative products for oral and maxillofacial surgery.

More recently, Citagenix initiated a strategic growth initiative in the United States, the largest global market for oral regenerative medicine.
