Bicycle Therapeutics Limited, a biotherapeutics company, focuses on developing highly constrained bicyclic peptides (bicycles) as novel class of therapeutics. The company is involved in developing a pipeline of bicycle molecules by using its proprietary bicyclic peptide technology that provide antibody-like affinity and selectivity in a much smaller chemically synthesized molecule. It applies its technology to various drug discovery projects, including oncology, ophthalmology, and other therapeutic areas through collaborative discovery partnerships with pharmaceutical companies.

ThromboGenics and Bicycle Therapeutics Seal Cooperation Agreement on Novel Ophthalmic Medicines
Sep 6 13
ThromboGenics announced that it has entered into a collaboration and licence agreement with Bicycle Therapeutics for the development and commercialisation of novel drugs that inhibit a particular target for the treatment of ophthalmic diseases, such as diabetic macular oedema/edema (DME). In particular, ThromboGenics intends to use the Bicycle Therapeutics bicyclic peptides for developing therapeutics that inhibit a target involved in vascular permeability. The companies will be collaborating on the preclinical development of these bicyclic peptide inhibitors; while ThromboGenics has an exclusive licence to take up the clinical development and commercialisation of identified drug candidates. In its turn, Bicycle will receive an upfront payment as well as development and regulatory milestone payments, and sales royalties, the details of which have not been disclosed. Significance: The selective inhibition of a target involved in vascular permeability is a new approach that could potentially help improve the DME treatment, a condition that affects around 30% of all patients who have suffered from diabetes for over 20 years and are at risk of developing the condition.
