Our Company

At Cycle, we believe that Every Single Patient Matters, this is at the heart of why we work, and we’d love for you to share our vision. We know that life-changing treatments need life-improving product support to match, because when you put the two together, great things can happen.

We are a pioneering pharmaceutical company, reimagining how drugs and services can benefit patients with rare disease to make their lives easier and improve their quality of life. Cycle, as a company, works closely with patient groups and healthcare professionals to understand the unmet needs of patients and their carers. By collaborating with academic communities and using the latest cutting-edge pharmaceutical technologies, we translate innovations into medicinal products that patients and caregivers actually desire. We deliver the required medicine with the minimum impact on daily routines and, just as importantly, provide individualized support services to patients, families, carers and the healthcare professionals community.

Cycle has three core areas of pharmaceutical development and work across rare metabolic, immunological and neurological genetic conditions: improving drugs – optimizing an existing drug; repurposing drugs – creating a new indication for an existing drug; and generics – reinstating generic drugs, previously available in the market. These three areas of focus are underpinned by formulation technology – using new drug delivery technologies to improve the efficacy and effectiveness of drugs, allowing us to give patients greater freedom and choice.
