JERUSALEM, Nov. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (Nasdaq: BVXV) ("BiondVax"), a biotechnology company focused on developing, manufacturing, and commercializing innovative products for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases and other illnesses, announced today that Dr. Dalit Weinstein Fischer, BiondVax's Head of Technical R&D, will attend and present at Recent Advances in Fermentation Technology (RAFT) 14, a conference of the Society for Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology (SIMB) taking place November 6 to 9, 2022 in Orlando, Florida. RAFT provides a forum for academic and industrial scientists to discuss the latest developments in fermentation technology.
Topic: Nano-sized solution for a massive challenge: NanoAbs as a platform for COVID-19, asthma, and psoriasis therapies
When: Tuesday, November 8 at 3:35pm (ET)
Where: Caribe Royale Orlando - Grand Sierra E
The presentation will focus on BiondVax's yeast fermentation system to manufacture innovative alpaca-derived recombinant nanosized VHH-antibodies (NanoAbs). NanoAbs are monoclonal antibody (mAbs) 'bio-betters' in terms of cost, heat and shear force stability, high target affinity, and potential convenience to patients. BiondVax's lead NanoAb candidate, for treatment of COVID-19, exhibits significant competitive advantages over currently available mAbs and oral COVID-19 therapies. Development is also underway for additional NanoAbs addressing diseases with large unmet medical needs and attractive commercial opportunities, such as psoriasis and asthma.
