BiondVax (NASDAQ: BVXV) is a biotechnology company focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing innovative immunotherapeutic products primarily for the treatment of infectious and autoimmune diseases. The company today announced statistically significant (p<0.001) efficacy results in a preclinical in vivo proof-of-concept study of its innovative inhaled nanosized antibody (“NanoAb”) COVID-19 therapy. “We are excited that the study results confirm the inhalation concept of our exclusively licensed NanoAb as a therapy for COVID-19 illness. Following these promising results, we intend to continue the study early next year by testing additional dose levels of the inhaled NanoAb therapy and as a prophylactic (preventive) treatment. Results of the trial will inform design of the first-in-human clinical trial of the inhaled NanoAb COVID-19 therapy, which is planned for late 2023,” said BiondVax’s Chief Science Officer Dr. Tamar Ben-Yedidia PhD. “On behalf of BiondVax’s team, I would like to thank the teams at Fraunhofer ITEM and TiHo for their professionalism in conducting this ongoing trial, and also our research partners Professor Dr. Dirk Görlich of the Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences (‘MPG’) and Professor Dr. Matthias Dobbelstein of the University Medical Center Göttingen and their teams for the ongoing collaboration.”
