Plasma Therapy Accelerator – ‘SARS-Hunter” a New Solution for Better Antibody Therapy for All COVID-19 Patients

Plasma Therapy Accelerator by Genekam Biotechnology AG, Germany has developed a plasma therapy accelerator called SARS-Hunter, which gives the possibility to hospitals to isolate the antibodies from plasma to be given as therapy and increases the chances of success of treatment, while reducing the side effects of plasma therapy given today. Such antibodies (immunoglobulin subtype IgG) are usually rich in coronavirus (SARS-Cov-2) specific antibodies.

This will solve the shortage problem also of therapy as millions of persons recovered from coronavirus 2020 can donate the plasma many times a year. SARS-Hunter is the quickest solution for the creation of effective antibodies therapy with low costs for all patients around the world.

Plasma from coronavirus recovered patients is being used as one of the successful therapeutic options to treat the corona virus-infected patients because it is rich in corona virus-specific antibodies. Plasma therapy may cause a number of side effects like allergic reactions, infections of other pathogens, acute lung injuries, red blood cell lysis (hemolysis) etc. To avoid the side effects and to give better results of plasma therapy, many big pharma companies are working to develop antibody therapy from such pooled plasma of recovered persons but such isolation can be done only at the industrial scale today as there is no machine available on the market, that one can do this at the hospital level. Genekam has developed such a small machine named SARS-Hunter, which can isolate such antibodies at the hospital level and these antibodies can be administered to the patient after running some simple safety tests particularly bacterial contamination. Another advantage is that cost of the antibody therapy can be reduced and the number of patients becoming this therapy will be increased as millions of recovered persons can donate their plasma multiple times. Plasma donors with high-quality neutralizing corona specific antibodies will help to create effective therapeutic doses, which can be given to more patients instead of giving whole plasma to one patient. This machine is very simple to operate and isolate antibodies within 1 hour. It weighs around 400 gm (very light). SARS-hunter can have a very strong impact on the antibody therapy and should make available antibody therapy to a large population. SARS-Hunter including reagents costs US$ 1499,-.

"In a medical first, we have now dosed our first patient in a clinical trial using their own lymph nodes as living bioreactors to regenerate an ectopic organ," said Dr. Michael Hufford, Co-Founder and CEO of LyGenesis. "This therapy will potentially be a remarkable regenerative medicine milestone by helping patients with ESLD grow new functional ectopic livers in their own body. If our study is successful and we obtain FDA approval, our allogenic cell therapy could enable one donated liver to treat many dozens of ESLD patients, which could help to tilt the current organ supply-demand imbalance in favor of patients."
The relationship between pharmaceutical companies and CDMOs is fundamentally collaborative, fostering an environment of innovation. By partnering with a CDMO, pharmaceutical firms can access a wide array of technologies and expertise that might otherwise be beyond their reach.
