“We are excited to join Baylor and Sabin PDP to develop and commercialize their novel approach, which has demonstrated efficacy in early pre-clinical studies in preventing SARS,” said Brighton Biotech Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Jurij Petrin.
“We cannot wait until global disasters happen to address these deadly diseases. MERS, for example, has a particularly high mortality rate of 40 to 50 percent,” added BBI Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Richard Sebastian Wanless. “We will move quickly and efficiently through the clinical and regulatory process so these vaccines are available as soon as possible.”
“We are delighted that BBI will join our group of consortium partners to accelerate the development of these important vaccines. Applying our PDP model we are poised to move these products quickly into first-in-human studies,” says Dr. Maria Elena Bottazzi, deputy director of Sabin PDP and associate dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor.”
