Bionaturis Leishmaniasis Vaccine Granted in USA

 

This new concession in USA joins the one already obtained by Bionaturis in China last September for the same patent family.

 

Each year 80 million dogs are in danger of developing the disease in the affected areas of Europe and America. Visceral leishmaniasis affects more than 700,000 people worldwide each year, with the dog being the main reservoir of the disease.

 

The granted patent protects the use of the intended vaccine in dogs and humans.

 

Bionaturis goes one step further in the pet market, which according to Euromonitor International represented 93,000 million euros in 2015.

 

The Centro de Desarrollo Tecnologico e Industrial (CDTI) has also granted Bionaturis a non-refundable incentive worth 196,300 euros to support the achievement of a new intermediate milestone in the development of the vaccine.

 

Jerez de la Frontera, February XX, 2018.- The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted the patent for the prevention and treatment of visceral leishmaniasis in both dogs and humans to the vaccine against this disease, which Bionaturis holds the worldwide exclusivity.

Bionaturis plans acquisitions and joint ventures, CEO says

Bionaturis, the Spanish biotech company, is planning acquisitions and joint ventures, CEO and majority shareholder Victor Infante said. Infante also said that although the company is already in talks with possible targets, it is interested in receiving approaches from advisers with identified targets.

The executive said that the company is analysing the market in-house; and that it is seeking consolidated businesses related to the pharma and cosmetics sectors, but always connected to biotech. “We are planning to invest up EUR 0.5m in the first acquisition and if everything goes well we could study more deals,” he said.

Infante said that these acquisitions are related to Bionaturis’ Contract Manufacturing Organization (CMO) business whereby the company manufactures drugs for third parties.

The executive explained that Bionaturis seeks local partners which are able to manufacture drugs, which have good knowledge of regulatory frameworks, and which have a strong sales channel. Bionaturis found the Brazil and Chile partners using in-house resources, Infante said, but added that for the future joint ventures he is interested in receiving approaches.

Bionaturis listed on the Spanish alternative stock market (MAB) in January 2012, Infante explained. He himself still owns a 59% stake and has a five year lock-up period. Bionaturis worked with KPMG as financial advisor and with Bankia as book-runner.

Asked about a possible corporate movement or a merger, the executive said that a lot of corporate deals are happening in the sector and although the company has not foreseen a merger in its business plan, if an opportunity were to arise it would be studied.

“Corporate movement in the sector is there; so saying no to something before knowing it, it is not logical,” Infante said. He added that Bionaturis might go to a deal if such […]

Bionaturis to tackle the protection of fish farms with oral vaccines

Aquaculture is a booming national industry. The total turnover in Spain alone stands at nearly 500 million euros, where Andalusia with 55 million euros accounts for 11% 
The AQUAFLY project, based on the Bionaturis FLYLIFE production system, will be deployed in collaboration with the Department of Chemical Engineering, Food Technology and Environmental Sciences, at the Science Faculty of Cadiz University; and CTAQUA (Andalusian Aquaculture Technological Centre Foundation).
Ana de las Heras from Bionaturis, who holds a PhD in Veterinary Science, is the Project leader, an initiative that will last 3 years and is co-funded by Corporación Tecnológica de Andalucía (CTA).

Jerez de la Frontera, 21 December 2012. Bionaturis, a biotechnological company listing  on the Spanish Alternative Investment Market (MAB), has embarked on the Aquafly project in collaboration with the Department of Chemical Engineering, Food Technology and Environmental Sciences, at the Science Faculty of Cadiz University; and CTAQUA (Andalusian Aquaculture Technological Centre Foundation).  The project aims to research more efficient vaccination alternatives for farmed fish..
Oral vaccines, a breakthrough for the sector
The idea for the project emerged from the Bionaturis internal aquaculture R&D team after analysing the sector’s needs in the meetings recently held between  international and national producers and veterinary companies. The technical goal is to design  and develop new oral therapeutic and prophylactic vaccines, based on the cutting-edge FLYLIFE production system  (using insect larva as bioreactors to produce biological drugs), which can be used more safety and efficiently to protect against major diseases that currently affect aquaculture. The research programme, which will run for three years, is led by Ana de las Heras, a Bionaturis scientific researcher with a PhD in Veterinary Sciences. This project is being cofunded by Corporación Tecnológica de Andalucía (CTA).
Importance of the industry: Aquaculture […]
