Sorrento Collaborates with Mount Sinai Health System to Develop COVI-SHIELD Antibody Cocktail Targeting COVID-19

Sorrento Initiates the Next Phase of its Collaboration with Celularity

Shots:

  • Sorrento to get access to plasma containing anti-COVID-19 Abs for identifying and produce mAbs with neutralizing activity against SARS-CoV-2. The company expects to commence the P-I study of triple Ab combination therapy in Q3’20
  • The focus of the collaboration is to jointly develop Ab cocktail which will act as a protective shield against COVID-19 and potentially block the virus in naïve at-risk populations and infected individuals. The therapy is designed to be resistant to future mutations in the virus
  • If approved, each dose of COVI-SHIELD will deliver a cocktail of three Abs which together would recognize three unique regions of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and can provide protection for up to 2mos. at a time
