The company was set-up in Canada in early 2000 by Denis Bernier and Dr. Grant Vandenberg after a revolutionary discovery that permits oral delivery of therapeutic molecules including vaccines, peptides and nutraceuticals. PerOs' patented technology, Oralject(TM), will revolutionize drug delivery by providing a very low-cost and effective large molecule delivery alternative to current drug delivery systems, including injection. Oralject(TM) technology is the first means of delivering large molecules in a cost-effective, accurate, modulated, safe and efficient manner.
