Elusys Awarded $68 Million Contract to Develop Anthim for Intramuscular Pre- and Post-Exposure Prophylaxis of Anthrax Infection
Date:9/8/2011

PINE BROOK, N.J., Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Elusys Therapeutics, Inc. (Elusys), a  biopharmaceutical company developing biodefense countermeasures, announced today that it has been awarded the first U.S. Government contract to develop an anti-toxin for pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) use via intramuscular injection (IM). The five year contract, totaling up to $68.9 million, will support multiple animal efficacy studies as well as human safety studies to further demonstrate the utility of Anthim (ETI-204), the company's anti-toxin, to prevent disease and death from exposure to anthrax when administered intramuscularly before symptoms of disease are present.  Anthim is an anti-toxin that significantly increases survival in anthrax-infected animals and is a promising candidate for the treatment of anthrax infection in people following a biowarfare attack. Intramuscular injection allows for the rapid administration of a single-dose of anti-toxin to large numbers of people outside of a hospital or medical setting and will not require trained medical personnel, intravenous bags, sterile mixing and other preparations needed for intravenous administration.

"Many more people can quickly receive prophylactic treatment against anthrax infection using intramuscular administration, particularly in an emergency setting before symptoms are present," said Elizabeth Posillico, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Elusys. "In several  animal studies conducted to date, ETI-204 has demonstrated excellent efficacy and increased survival significantly when given in a single intramuscular dose. We are pleased to continue the advanced development of Anthim for prophylactic therapy against anthrax toxemia."  

Anthrax is a life-threatening infectious disease caused by the bacteria Bacillus anthracis and remains one of the nation's top biowarfare threats.
