Phytochemical drug discovery for antivirals

A scientific approach to Rx from nature


The science of plant-derived protease inhibitors

EMSKE Phytochem is committed to the research of nature-based compounds for some of humanity's most difficult viral pathologies. By using the latest biochem-informatic simulation technologies and applying strict phytochemical methodologies, we’ve become known for shining a new light in the path to widely affordable antivirals. Get to know us to understand our approach, and look at what we have in the pipeline.

A rational approach to plant medicinals

Applying the latest analytical technologies, EMSKE Phytochem takes a rational, scientific approach to plant-based medicinals.  EMSKE focuses on plant-based protease inhibitors for combatting human-infectable viral pathogens.

Isolated plant compounds - in a capsule

By identifying compounds through top-notch phytochemistry and leveraging results from the academically-published phytochemicals community, we isolate active pharmaceutical ingredients (API's) from natural sources from the plant kingdom.

Whole plant extract - powder grinds and decoctions

Beyond looking after the region-specific agricultural sourcing at scale of relevant API-containing plants, we also verify plant extracts: 
Extracts enable distributed production so that, upon clinical verification, therapeutics can get into the hands of those who need them most sooner than later
