FP7 Sadel Project

 SADEL Logo 

Since January 2012, ECCO is a Consortium Partner in the EU FP7 Sadel Project in which research efforts focus on Scaffolds for Alternative DELivery and Nanofitin®-based drug in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD):


  • Research on first-in-class generation of non-parenteral biotherapeutics
  • Clinically validated target chosen: TNFα
  • New class of non-antibody affinity ligands able to selectively bind a wider range of targets
  • Nanofitin® characteristics:
    • Small size (optimal tissue penetration)
    • Resistance to pH and to human intestinal fluids (long-half-life in digestive track)
    • High affinity (low effective concentration needed)
    • Strong  potential for reduced immunogenicity compared to current biologic
