MissionIRNewsBreaks – BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (NASDAQ: BVXV) Enters Development, Commercialization Agreement for Novel Anti-IL-17 Antibody

BiondVax Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: BVXV), a biotechnology company focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing innovative immunotherapeutic products primarily for the treatment of infectious and autoimmune diseases, has signed an exclusive worldwide license agreement. The agreement, which is part of its ongoing collaboration with the Max Planck Society and the University Medical Center Gottingen (“UMG”), outlines the development and commercialization of VHH antibodies (NanoAbs) targeting Interleukin-17 (“IL-17”) as treatments for all potential indications; the agreement notes that development will start with a focus on psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. According to the announcement, BiondVax will lead out on the development and commercialization of the NanoAbs, with vivo proof-of-concept expected this year and in vivo anticipated early next year. The agreement adds to the company’s pipeline of biobetter antibodies targeting diseases with large unmet medical needs and represents attractive commercial opportunities. The announcement noted that recent preclinical in vivo data showed that BiondVax’s anti‑SARS‑CoV‑2 NanoAb prevented illness when inhaled prophylactically and led to a shorter, milder illness. “The license of the IL-17 NanoAb from Max Planck is not only an exciting opportunity to develop a unique treatment for psoriasis and other autoimmune diseases but another validation of the productivity of our collaboration with Max Planck and UMG and portends additional significant developments to follow,” said BiondVax Pharmaceuticals CEO Amir Reichman in the press release. “Psoriasis affects millions of people worldwide, and we believe our NanoAbs have the potential to provide a much-needed and vastly improved treatment option.”
