What We Do

Our Mission is to Revolutionize Pulmonary Care and Save Lives by Curing Lung Disease

BioSuperior Technology, Inc. is a preclinical stage biotherapeutics company developing cost-effective, non-invasive, and easily accessible technologies to cure lung disease and repair damaged lung tissue.

Gene-delivered Therapeutic – Alveogene 

We are developing a gene-delivered therapeutic, Alveogene, that halts disease progression and repairs damaged lung tissue in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) and Acute Lung Injury (ALI). Our gene therapy can be administered to the lung by itself or in combination with our bio-engineered lung surfactant.  

Bio-engineered Lung Surfactant – BioSURF™

We have bio-engineered a novel synthetic pulmonary surfactant prototype, BioSURF™, an essential biomaterial required for breathing. BioSURF™ has direct therapeutic affects and will be used to deliver potent drugs far restore normal lung function. We have overcome key technical issues that have limited the efficacy of other synthetic lung surfactants.  

Beyond the pulmonary field, we expect that our technology platforms will be applicable to the treatment of other illnesses related to the microvasculature, including hemorrhagic stroke and chronic kidney disease.
