GreenJay Therapeutics Successfully Completes More than $1 Million in its Seed Round of Financing

Houston, Texas — (June 30, 2023) — GreenJay Therapeutics, Inc. (“GreenJay” or the “Company”), a drug formulation company focused on developing safer, more soluble and more efficacious therapies for patients with leukemia and other blood disorders, announced today that the Company has completed its seed round of financing.

“We are very pleased with our success in raising significant capital that allows further development of our novel formulation of IV busulfan,” said Michael Redman, President and Chief Executive Officer of GreenJay. “Reaching this important milestone provides us with the ability to perform activities necessary to submit for FDA registration through the 505(b)(2) regulatory pathway.”   

The 505(b)(2) New Drug Application (NDA) is a streamlined process in which the applicant relies on one or more investigations conducted by a company other than the applicant and for which the applicant has not obtained right of reference. This pathway enables investigators and/or manufacturers to apply for approval without the need to repeat all the drug development work performed for an innovator drug.

The novel formulation, called BulantaTM, differs from other IV busulfan formulations in that Bulanta does not contain dimethyl acetamide (DMA), which has been deemed by regulatory authorities as a toxic solvent. DMA is currently being dosed at a level up to 1000 times the daily permitted exposure when used in current IV busulfan formulations and is associated with neurotoxicity side effects.
