About Comanche Biopharma

We are a preclinical biopharmaceutical company developing novel siRNA compounds for the treatment of preeclampsia. Our purpose is to lower the risks of pregnancy and prematurity worldwide by safely sustaining natural pregnancy and allowing for fetal maturation.

We envision a world where all pregnant women have access to safe and effective therapies that are evidence-based, cost-effective and sustainable. Our mission is to prevent or treat preeclampsia at its root cause.

Comanche Biopharma is named in honor and appreciation of the Numunuu people’s innovative utilization of the horse. Their recognition and adoption of the horse as a disruptive technology along with improvements made in quality, processes, and structures opened entirely new markets and reshaped nations. We believe the drug industry should be inspired by this example of purposeful innovation and take the opportunity to re-examine its approach to drug discovery, redesign its development processes for cost efficient high quality trials, radically change its distribution of new drugs, and redefine how value to society is measured. Comanche Biopharma is committed to the ethical representation of all people of color and economic status in our clinical development programs. We prioritize ensuring access to our drugs by those who need them most.
