New Company to Develop Nutritional Interventions Against Chronic Inflammatory and Infectious Diseases
Date:10/17/2008

BLACKSBURG, Va., Oct. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new company is being created as a spin-off from Virginia Tech research to develop nutritional interventions against chronic inflammatory and infectious diseases. BioTherapeutics Inc. will promote health and well-being through the discovery and development of nutraceuticals -- naturally occurring molecules that can be integrated into nutritional products and functional food ingredients.

BioTherapeutics Inc. was newly incorporated in August, 2008, with the purpose of introducing novel Virginia Tech-developed nutraceutical technologies into the marketplace. The company was founded by Dr. Josep Bassaganya-Riera, Associate Professor at the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute at Virginia Tech, who has more than 15 years experience working at the interface between immunology and nutrition. Dr. Bassaganya-Riera said, "BioTherapeutics Inc. will provide a platform for translating new scientific knowledge arising from leading university research into products and technologies that improve people's health and well-being."

The mission of BioTherapeutics Inc. is to develop novel, orally active, naturally occurring compounds that have proven scientific efficacy and have been shown by clinical research to have substantial health claims. Each technology in BioTherapeutics' product pipeline has shown efficacy in mouse studies and is linked to chronic inflammatory or infectious disease prevention or treatment. BioTherapeutics has already licensed three U.S. patents from VTIP and filed another in Europe.

The products developed by the company will be based on technologies licensed to BioTherapeutics Inc. by Virginia Tech Intellectual Properties (VTIP). VTIP works with inventors to identify companies that may be interested in Virginia Tech inventions, negotiates licensing agreements and manages the income from royalties and licensing fees that is shared with inventors and Virginia Tech. The technologies were
