Using Proggio, KAHR Medical

“With Proggio, we were able to map out a two year plan from high level to granular detail – in just a few days. We continue to use Proggio for the operational phase of the project, especially in status meetings. This allows the entire staff to collaborate, from lab techs to C-level.”

-Yaron Pereg, CEO, Kahr Medical

Company: KAHR Medical is an innovative biotechnology company developing a novel drug platform targeting multiple cancer indications. KAHR’s proprietary technology, known as DSP (Dual Signaling Proteins), enables the construction of targeted biological drugs with two functional ends, which can simultaneously block and/or activate two reinforcing biological signals resulting in a synergistic outcome.

Challenge: KAHR Medical, like many biotechnology companies, faces a lengthy process before it can translate technology in medicines. The development process before initiating clinical trials includes pre-clinical testing of efficacy and safety. Once the pre-clinical program is complete, the company submits an IND (Investigational New Drug) application to the FDA that approves the initiation of clinical trials. The pre-clinical development process is long and arduous and spans years of testing. It can often be conducted across multiple locations and require detailed planning and coordination across a multi-disciplinary team and third party contractors.

Solution: KAHR Medical used Proggio to plan their IND-enabling development plan. In a few days days, KAHR Medical was able to create a two-year plan, from high level plan to granular level tasks and assignments.

Result: KAHR Medical is currently running the program using Proggio to coordinate across the entire enterprise, from lab technicians to C-level executives. After seeing the difference Proggio makes, KAHR now uses Proggio for R&D planning, operations, and reporting.
