Xenotox Inc.pdf
A not-for-profit corporation XENOTOX provides innovation and consulting services to the life sciences academia and industry.
We ourselves are currently focusing on science/biotech areas originated from the previous research discoveries, namely:

Conceptualization and Implementation of Xenovirology as Interdisciplinary Field Linked to Inflammatory and Neurodegenerative Diseases in Humans

(For more details on the subject, please see Part 4 of this website).

Development of Long Acting Forms of First-Line Analgesics, Synthetic Opioids and Antimalarials using Site-Specific Modification of Chemical Structure

(The content of this subject is truncated due to patenting process requirements).

In August 2022 we at Xenotox Inc. celebrated our 17th business anniversary, so we have a specific niche of innovation consulting expertise in human health-centered areas. Individuals and research organizations might become potential collaborative partners in implementation of our strategies and data presented in • Contributions to Basic Biomedical Research and • Contributions to Applied Clinical Research.
