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

intends to report early results at an upcoming biodefense conference. NIAID also recently awarded a new VHF grant to Peregrine's collaborators at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Dr. Amy Brideau-Andersen will be directing the new Anti-Viral Research Group. Before joining Peregrine in 2006, she played an important role in the discovery and development of novel anti-viral drugs at Valeant Pharmaceuticals and at Maxygen, Inc. Dr. Brideau-Andersen completed her post-doctoral training in virology at The Scripps Research Institute. She earned B.S/M.S. degrees from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and was awarded a Ph.D. in molecular biology from Princeton University.

"As a virologist, I am excited about the opportunity to lead this initiative," said Dr. Brideau-Andersen. "PS is a novel host-derived target that is present in many different viral infections. It has the potential to help harness the body's own immune defenses to combat infection while avoiding the problems of resistance that have limited the utility of many anti-viral agents. We look forward to working proactively with both our current collaborators and with the many scientific and medical organizations that are coming to us seeking to learn more about this important new approach."

Peregrine's collaborators currently include researchers affiliated with Duke University, Harvard University, UT Southwestern Medical Center, the National Institutes of Health, Utah State University, the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research, the University of California at Irvine, Northwestern University, the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and other institutions in the U.S., U.K., and Brazil.

A scientific publication by Drs. Melina Soares and Philip Thorpe and colleagues discussing the broad anti-viral potential of bavituximab and other PS-targeting antibodies received wide attention when it was published in the December 2008 edition of Nature Medicine
