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,-.

Ariceum Therapeutics’ Targeted Radiopharmaceutical 177Lu-satoreotide Exhibits Promising Clinical Response and Good Tolerability Profile in Patients with Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumours

Satoreotide combines Ariceum’s proprietary peptide satoreotide - a first-in-class and best-in-class antagonist of the somatostatin receptor 2 (SSTR2) - with the radioactive isotope ‘payload’ 177Lutetium. SSTR2 is a cell surface protein often overexpressed in certain cancers, including NETs and small cell lung cancer (SCLC).

New Hot Start Isothermal Mixes Boost Sensitivity, Specificity, and Speed of DNA Target Detection

Isothermal mixes are important in a range of isothermal amplification applications, including whole genome amplification, point-of-care assay development and testing, and strand displacement amplification for synthetic biology. However, a common issue with isothermal mixes is non-specific amplification — where primers bind to unintended DNA targets — because amplification often takes place at a fixed temperature which may favour non-specific primer interactions, contrary to PCR. Isothermal mixes can also lead to primer dimer formation, where primers associate with each other and are extended by the polymerase.

Branded Legacy Invests Heavily in Innovation and Growth with $540,000 Expansion

This strategic initiative underscores Branded Legacy's unwavering commitment to innovation, quality, and customer satisfaction. The expansion project is set to infuse over $500,000 worth of inventory into the company, reinforcing its position as a leader in the market.

Cue Biopharma Completes Patient Enrollment in Ph1b Head & Neck Cancer Trial

“Completing the enrollment of the recommended phase 2 dose patient expansion cohort is an important milestone as the data from this trial guides further development plans and associated discussions with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA),” said Daniel Passeri, chief executive officer of Cue Biopharma.

Revvity Expands Access to Base Editing Technology with Aim to Accelerate Discovery to Cure

Michelle Fraser, head of cell and gene therapy at Revvity, underscores the importance of providing broad access to this technology: "Base editing has been extensively demonstrated in numerous studies to safely and precisely control the correction of single base changes at multiple target sites, simultaneously. This streamlined approach simplifies complex multi-gene editing, holding great promise for the development of new cell therapies targeting rare inherited genetic diseases, cancer, and in the creation of universal donor cells as the foundation of allogeneic cell therapies."
