Anna Biosciences Launches Pioneering Immunotherapeutic Treatment to Fight COVID-1922.6.2021 15:00:00 CEST | Press release

Anna Biosciences, a drug discovery company focused on novel therapies in immuno-oncology, virology, and neurodegenerative diseases, today announces its entry in the fight against COVID-19 with the introduction of its immunotherapy platform, Syntem. The Anna Biosciences Syntem Platform deploys engineered proprietary molecules to create synthetic immunity. Syntem’s lab-made molecules are multi-specific: they first target and flag the pathology, and then elicit an immune reaction that targets the virus or disease. Research indicates the Syntem Platform can inhibit viral infection and aid in the removal of COVID-19 infected cells. Showing promise as both a prophylactic and a treatment, there is considerable hope that in addition to supporting the broader population, immunocompromised patients will be able to safely use Syntem to prevent infection. Importantly, Syntem also exhibits high potential against COVID variants. In the case of COVID-19, and coronaviruses more generally, the Syntem P
