About 3Helix, Inc.
Biotech Company
3Helix is a small diagnostic startup established in 2015, located in Salt Lake City, UT. We strive to empower collagen for diagnosing and treating human conditions. Collagen is the most abundant protein in mammals and contains a unique hallmark: the collagen triple helix. Many diseases and injuries are often associated with dysregulated collagen turnover (arthritis, cancer, fibrosis, wound healing, etc.). Our proprietary technology, Collagen Hybridizing Peptides (CHPs), can target and bind to damaged or denatured collagen. CHPs are a short, synthetic peptide sequences which mimics the sequence of natural collagens. CHPs can recognize the structural motif of individual collagen strands and folds to reform the triple helix, this is similar to the way primers bind to DNA during PCR. This method of targeting is vastly different than epitope recognition used by antibodies which have difficulty recognizing unstructured proteins or damaged epitopes.
