LLS TAP to Support COVID-19 Antibody Clinical Studies
Apply by March 31, 2021
Is your company a leading biotech developing antibody therapeutics against SARS-CoV-2?
Patients with hematological malignancies are more susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection, suffer delayed recovery and higher mortality rate, in comparison to healthy individuals. While the rollout of vaccines will provide much needed protection for the general public, efficacious treatment options following a SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis or as (post-exposure) prophylaxis, are still very desirable for these patients.
LLS TAP can provide co-funding to support clinical trials that include blood cancer patients to study your antibody therapeutics as treatment or infection prevention. Based on to the emergence of new variants, demonstrated preclinical efficacy of a drug candidate towards the UK, SA and BZ variants will be an important consideration for funding.
