Peregrine Pharmaceuticals Forms Anti-Viral Research Group to Oversee Its Anti-PS Infectious Disease Collaborations
Date:10/7/2009

treatment of a range of serious infectious diseases," said Steven W. King, president and CEO of Peregrine. "A growing body of published scientific research confirms that PS plays an important role in the development of many serious viral diseases, as well as in protozoan-caused illnesses such as malaria and leishmaniasis, conditions that impact the lives of millions of people worldwide each year. We believe that our PS-targeting antibody platform has the potential to address the large commercial markets represented by these diseases and to significantly impact the well-being of people around the globe. As a result, we see many opportunities to both optimize our current collaborations and to obtain new funding and support from additional external sources. This is the focus and mission of the Anti-Viral Research Group, and we are confident that it will be successful in identifying additional resources to help advance our PS-targeting anti-infective programs in the near and mid-term."

PS, a lipid molecule normally found only on the inside of cell membranes, becomes exposed on the outside of the membranes of certain viruses and virally infected cells. A rapidly growing body of published scientific research confirms that exposed PS is directly involved in the pathogenesis of many serious infectious diseases. Exposed PS enables viruses to evade immune recognition and dampens the body's normal responses to infection. By masking the exposed PS, PS-targeting antibodies are believed to block these effects, allowing the body to develop a robust immune response to the pathogen. Peregrine's PS-targeting antibodies have been shown to help clear infectious virus from the bloodstream and to induce antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity. Researchers have found that PS is exposed on the outer membrane of cells infected with HIV, influenza, herpes simplex viruses, hemorrhagic fever viruses, measles and members of the smallpox and rabies virus families.
