SAN MATEO, Calif. -- NuMedii, Inc. today announced a new partnership with a drug delivery company to develop new therapeutics for ulcerative colitis. The collaboration will bring together NuMedii's NM-001 asset for ulcerative colitis and a proprietary delivery technology that enables efficient delivery to the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

"We believe this collaboration has the potential to create transformative treatment options for patients with ulcerative colitis. It provides an exciting opportunity to leverage an asset identified by NuMedii's AI drug discovery platform alongside our partner's expertise in local GI drug delivery," said Gini Deshpande, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer.
