SaNOtize, based in Vancouver BC, was incorporated,as a clinical stage biotech startup, to commercialize the multi-faceted antimicrobial properties of a liquid producing nitric oxide. We have developed and patented a Nitric Oxide Releasing Solution platform technology to treat and prevent microbial infections. 

The co-founders, have vast scientific and clinical expertise, specifically in nitric oxide, as well as regulatory, IP and management experience. We have successfully brought nitric oxide based drugs & devices to mid- phase 2 and negotiated and completed single-asset pharmaceutical agreements. 

SaNOtize is using nitric oxide, a natural molecule to our body, to treat topical infections. In fact, NO is part of our body’s own defence mechanism against infections. Unlike antibiotic, NO, can eradicate bacteria, viruses, fungi and all drug resistant bugs. On top of that, it is a vasodilator, involved in wound healing and modulates inflammation.

We have succeeded in finding the way to produce and deliver NO at an antimicrobial concentration and have an issued patent on the methods and composition.

We have decided to start with Athlete’s Foot as our first indication as it is a relatively simple disease, low cost of clinical trials and has significant advantages over the current practice. We have completed phase I clinical trial with a NOL from Health Canada and showed safety and efficacy with no adverse events. Other indication on our platform technology varies from a foot bath for DFU through strep throat gargle to a nasal spray for flu prevention.
