For the unaware, we are collaborating with ImmunoPrecise to develop treatment for the coronavirus. We recently submitted our first panel of optimized antibody sequences. See below.
EVQLV, has submitted their first panel of candidate therapeutic antibody sequences, comprised of DNA sequences encoding for potentially therapeutic antibodies against the new coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. These DNA sequences were generated using computational antibody design, a method which combines mathematics, statistics, and computer science to identify high-affinity antibodies. The submitted antibody sequences were pre-screened by EVQLV’s artificial intelligence-driven algorithms, which work to maximize the resulting antibodies’ therapeutic potential while minimizing safety and manufacturing risks.IPA believes treatments for the new coronavirus are ideally generated using data from the newly emerged strain, in part as the spike protein from the 2019 virus has been shown to have a unique sequence that sets it apart from the 2002 SARS-CoV and SARS-related CoVs1.
