Hyamedix Innovation Safety Efficacy

Next generation drug products utilizing patented hydrogel technology to improve the delivery, safety and efficacy of APIs

About us

Hyamedix specializes in improving drug delivery and drug release profiles in order to improve their safety and efficacy with the use of a naturally occurring molecule of the human body, Hyaluronan (HA), a well-known, safe, biodegradable and biocompatible molecule. Based on this we develop bespoke drug products combining customized hydrogel formulations with selected APIs for novel/unmet clinical needs.

Our hydrogel technology enables us to package and formulate existing or new APIs in ways that allow for more optimal release and delivery for better safety, efficacy and patient compliance.  By optimizing/repurposing these APIs we are also able to target new and novel therapeutic spaces as well as utilizing an accelerated and cost-effective clinical pathway.

With its advanced patented HA modification technology, HyalinkTM X Hyamedix is able to:


Extend the commercial lifetime of drugs


Improve patient compliance


Open new market opportunities for existing as well as new drugs (including shelved drugs)

Our Pipeline

Hyamedix is part of a range of active projects at various levels of development. For any information about these projects or to keep up to date with their development please don’t hesitate to contact us.



Phase 1

Phase 2

Phase 3



Project DX1
Project Gelferon
Project Senso

Elevate Osteo Pty Ltd

Orthapedics Treatment

A patented osteoarthritis product based on extended release of a drug that will be injected intra-articularly to reduce pain and inflammation of arthritic joints to improve quality of life and delay (or avoid) the need for joint replacement.

Naris Therapeutics Pty Ltd

COVID Therapeutics

A novel patent pending SARS-CoV2 prophylactic designed to treat viral infections by inducing rapid viral clearance.

Nerve Protection Pty Ltd

Nerve Protection

A patented biosurgical product based on slow release of a drug that will be topically applied to an exposed nerve during surgery to reduce intra-axonol cell death or inflammatory pathways.

Therapeutic Spaces

Hyamedix is currently present and active in three different therapeutic spaces via separate joint ventures which we own and operate in collaboration with our partner, Intravital Pty Ltd, in Australia.

Naris Therapeutics Pty Ltd

Most nasal sprays are cleared from the nasal cavity and ingested within 15-20 minutes. This barrier limits the feasibility of nasal sprays to select therapies. Based on a new platform technology of sprayable hydrogels, Naris Therapeutics is able to deliver therapies that stay localised to the nasal cavity where they can be slowly released for optimal therapeutic effect.  The spray is undetectable following use, with no leakage, sensation or ingestion. 

Nerve Protection Pty Ltd

Surgical nerve injury is common, debilitating and largely preventable. All surgery creates trauma which drives an inflammatory and cell death process in exposed nerves. This directly causes impaired function, pain and misery. Nerve Protection Pty Ltd’s novel gel and first-in-class therapy treats nerves at the time of surgery, preventing the fallout and improving surgical outcomes. 

Elevate Osteo Pty Ltd

Elevate Osteo is developing a next generation treatment which immediately improves symptoms of arthritis while protecting cartilage and accelerating healing in damaged joints.

Intraarticular steroid injection has been the mainstay of short-term treatment of knee osteoarthritis (OA) pain. However, the duration of therapeutic effect from a single injection is not as long as desired. In this study we use a viscous formulation of triamcinolone acetate (TCA) in hyaluronic acid to prolong the anti-allodynia effect of that steroid.
