Redoxis R&D activities

Redoxis founders and personel have a strong background in academic research on animal models of inflammation and autoimmunity with focus on redox regulation of the immune system. Redoxis was founded as a R&D company with focus on development of small molecules targeting the NOX2 complex (phagocytic NADPH oxidase) for treatment of autoimmune conditions. That project is since May continued in our subsidiary ProNoxis. As a company we value connection with the academic research and engage in both research programmes and activities including exchange of personel between academic and industrial institutions. This connection and active works within the academic research field help us keep up to date with the recent findings and continue development of services provided. We are continuously increasing and refining the models we are providing, with the aim of being a reliable and cost efficient provider of preclinical models of autoimmunity and inflammation.

EU funded research projects

We value the connection to academic research and we aim to always expand and improve our knowledge and service portfolio. We are therefore happy to be part of several EU funded research programs. Our currently ongoing project are:


IMAID (Advanced in vivo imaging service for preclinical models to improve therapies in Autoimmune Diseases) is a Eurostars project where we together with Image analysis (UK) and LBIC (Lund University, Lund) aim to set up and provide services of advanced in vivo imaging analysis in preclinical animal models of autoimmune conditions for the pharmaceutical industry. We hope that inclusion of in vivo imaging of joint and CNS pathologies in whole animals will provide a more detailed and extensive evaluation of efficacy of new drugs and improve the selection of the best drugs for further development and clinical trials. 

Be The Cure

Be the Cure is a IMI funded research project which aims to develop new therapies against RA. Combining academic and industrial resource will enhance basic understanding of disease processes and therapeutic development. Redoxis major part in the project is involving standardisation of animal models for RA. 


A RISE program (Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action) aiming at transfer of knowledge and networking between Aston University (Aston, UK), Friedrich-Alexander University (Erlangen, DE) and Redoxis (SE). The project targets reactive oxygen species (ROS) mediated regulation of immunology and aging. It brings together the application of small molecule candidate drugs to generate ROS using innovative approaches to biomarker identification in models of chronic immune disease. 


NEURINOX is a FP7 funded programme aiming at identifying novel therapeutic targets for neuroinflammatory diseases, by focusing on NADPH oxidases (NOX). NEURINOX is coordinated by University of Geneva and includes several SMEs, internationally renowned research groups  and clinical institutions with extensive experience in NOX research and neurodegenerative diseases.
