  • AstraZeneca highlighted its efforts towards the development of Ab against the pandemic SARS-CoV-2 virus by deploying its internal expertise and via news collaboration with government and academia
  • The Chinese Academy of Sciences and Vanderbilt University Medical Center are providing AstraZeneca with genetic sequences for Ab, discovered against SARS2-CoV-2 for further in silico and in vitro assessment
  • In collaboration with USAMRIID and the University of Maryland School of Medicine, the company will do preclinical safety and efficacy assessment in BSL3 laboratories. AstraZeneca is harnessing its agreement with DARPA for the screening of Ab which is based on their ability to bind to the spike protein with a goal for clinical evaluation in the next 3-5mos.
