We are excited about the collaboration because it brings together the unique biomedical skills of the AFRRI
scientists, the innovative spirit of the DMetrix team and array microscope technology to advance the field of cytology.
The study was carried out under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) among The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences which includes AFRRI
, led by Col.
commented, "We continue to work closely with AFRRI
and the DoD to progress the development and approval of CBLB502.
Building on DoD expertise, Humanetics and AFRRI
are currently targeting several compounds -- some of which have already been shown to be effective in initial trials to increase survival in mice receiving lethal doses of radiation.
Humanetics has been working with researchers at AFRRI
for several years to develop BIO 300 and other safe, effective agents to prevent and treat ARS.
Humanetics said it will work with AFRRI
to complete the remaining pre-clinical studies on BIO 300 within the next few months and will file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) by mid-2006.
is a leader in studying the short- and long-term effects of radiation injury.
Humanetics will collaborate on development of BIO300 with AFRRI
, which is considered the country's premier center for radiation injury countermeasure research.
We are delighted that Congress recognizes the importance of our collaborative effort with AFRRI
to develop oral countermeasures for biodefense.
