 Project objective

Subcutaneous injection drug market is highly increasing (CAGR of 7%) and is view as a viable alternative route for parenteral drug administration because it enables at-home injection, improves quality of life and reduces health care costs. However, the absence of accurate biological model to predict the effect of drug injection in the subcutaneous tissue limits their development. That issue leads to 88% of drug attrition causing a loss of more than €1B per developed drug and a sharp decrease of patient security during clinical trials.

HypoSkin is the first and unique in vitro standardized and ready-to-use testing kit containing living ex vivo human skin biopsies with subcutaneous fat, allowing pharmaceuticals to highly reliably predict local human’s response to the injection of a drug or a medical device. This disruptive innovation permits Hyposkin’s customers to save time and money (10 times faster and 5 times cheaper than animal experiment, confirmed in the on-going payed pilot test) as well as secure the development of their products before clinical trials. HypoSkin will become worldwide reference method to replace inadequate animal testing currently used today.

HypoSkin model is developed by Genoskin an innovative French company, founded in 2011 as a spin-off of the French National Center for Scientific Research and the Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse. Genoskin provides other human-skin alternative models to pharmaceuticals companies all over the world leading to sales of €700K in 2017.

The SME Instrument project will allow the company to improve, qualify and industrialise HypoSkin. To accomplish this goal Genoskin will complete a feasibility study to further analyse risks and cost of scale-up, the European regulatory framework and will deepen and sharpen the global subcutaneous injection market. Genoskin plans to lead the European and global alternative method market with an estimated turnover of € 34 M by 2024, and 110 new European and worldwide jobs.
