Company Announces Engagement of Rodman & Renshaw as Financial Advisor
Genetic Immunity LLC, a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company and a leader in the development of DNA based nanoparticle immunotherapies, announced today the completion of a $2 million dollar bridge financing.
Genetic Immunity's lead product is DermaVir Patch developed for the treatment of HIV/AIDS. The Company believes that this biopharmaceutical product will reconstitute HIV-specific immunity and reduce the viral load set-point in HIV-infected individuals enabling them to manage the disease safely prior to the initiation of the currently approved drug regimes. DermaVir Patch applies the Company's patented platform technology to efficiently deliver the nanoparticle medicine topically (needle free) to dendritic cells for transport to the draining lymph nodes where T cells are educated to kill the virus. The product has been demonstrated as safe and effective in reducing viral loads in monkey studies. A Phase I clinical trial has demonstrated safety and immunogenicity of DermaVir Patch in HIV-infected individuals. NIH and Karolinska Institute sponsored Phase II trials are ongoing in the U.S. and Sweden.
The Company also announced the engagement of the New York based investment firm of Rodman & Renshaw, LLC as its financial advisor.
"We are pleased to have secured the bridge financing which will enable the Company to launch an additional Phase II trial to demonstrate the proof of concept of DermaVir Patch in reducing the viral load in HIV positive individuals," said Dr. Julianna Lisziewicz, President and CEO of Genetic Immunity. "We are also very excited to be working with such a well regarded and respected firm as Rodman & Renshaw to assist the Company to develop the financial strategies for completing our clinical trials and bringing DermaVir Patch to the market."
