BiondVax (NASDAQ: BVXV), a biotechnology company focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing innovative immunotherapeutic products primarily for the treatment of infectious and autoimmune diseases, recently signed an exclusive worldwide license agreement to develop and commercialize VHH antibodies (“NanoAbs”) that target Interleukin-17 (“IL-17”). “The license agreement is part of a broad-based collaboration with the Max Planck Society and the University Medical Center Göttingen (‘UMG’). The NanoAbs will be targeted toward the treatment of several relevant indications, including, but not limited to, psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. BiondVax’s collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences and UMG, both based in Germany, is producing a pipeline of innovative therapies addressing diseases underserved by current treatments, yet with large and growing markets,” a recent article reads. “According to Dr. Dieter Link, patent and licensing manager at Max Planck Innovation, this milestone marks a significant step toward the clinical application of the next VHH antibody candidates out of the larger group of NanoAbs contemplated by the collaborators. ‘BiondVax is well positioned to move this closer to and into clinical application,’ he said.”
