Luxna Biotech was founded to support patients who are suffering from diseases and to create oligonucleotide therapeutics by installing technologies that promote the use of oligonucleotide therapeutics in the clinical setting.


Based on the nucleic acid pharmaceutical element technologies accumulated in Osaka University, we promote safer and more effective oligonucleotide therapeutics so they can used in the clinical setting. By accelerating drug research, we aim to respond to unmet medical needs.

Origin of company name

We named our company, Luxna Biotech because we are hoping to bring “light (Lux)” to patients who are suffering from diseases for which there is currently no effective drug treatment by advancing the development of the modified nucleic acid group (XNA), which has been developed by Osaka University.
