Understanding the Trial Process

As many of you may know, PKA SoftTouch Corp. (PKA) raised enough capital last year to fund veterinary trials. This year, we are raising further funds for human clinical trials, which should be the final stage before commercialization and the ability to sell licences of our Micro-needle technology.

Our Personal Motivation

Dick Crawford, CEO and Co-founder When I first met Dr. Modi I was impressed with his profound ‘out of the box’ inventiveness. He is brilliant.
