ImmunoPrecise Launches Coronavirus Vaccine and Therapeutic Antibody Program
February 20, 2020
ImmunoPrecise Antibodies Ltd (the “Company”), a provider of best-in-class therapeutic antibody discovery capabilities for the global industry, announces its commitment to the development of innovative vaccines against the new coronavirus originating in Wuhan, China (SARS-CoV-2) as well as coronavirus-neutralizing antibodies, addressing both prophylactic and therapeutic measures to fight the virus and its associated disease, COVID-19.
IPA’s Rapid Research and Development (RR&D) Team is leveraging its unique ability to address global, pandemic crises in an abbreviated timeframe. To date, the virus has caused approximately 1,875 deaths and over 74,000 known infections and is rapidly expanding worldwide. ImmunoPrecise has designated Dr. Ilse Roodink, the chairwoman of IPA’s subsidiary Talem Therapeutic’s scientific committee, as the Coronavirus Global Project Leader. Under her supervision, the Company has embarked on a global response and properly designed campaign.
The sophisticated infrastructure of IPA significantly contributed to a quick, but sensible, response initiated by the design and production of relevant SARS-CoV-2 target antigens to facilitate the upcoming identification of prophylactic and therapeutic compounds using IPA’s proprietary discovery platforms (including B Cell Select™ and DeepDisplay™) and Talem’s access to the leading transgenic animal platform OmniAb® for direct generation of human antibodies.
“We believe that ImmunoPrecise will make an impressive contribution to the global fight against SARS-CoV-2,” stated Dr. Jennifer Bath, President and CEO of ImmunoPrecise Antibodies. “With the aid of iterative advancements rapidly compiling from across the globe, including data such as the February 19th release of the prefusion form of the new coronavirus spike glycoprotein, research teams are advancing the collective effort toward the development of efficacious vaccines, therapeutic antibodies, and diagnostics. We grow more determined each day about contributing to this endeavor, as we monitor the rapid, global spread of SARS-CoV-2.”
