Eastbourne, UK – Daval International limited (“Daval International” or “Daval”), the UK based biotechnology company focused on the development of its leading product AIMSPRO®, announces that Prof. Syed Haq, Chief Scientific and Medical Officer of Daval International and Dr Deirdre McIntosh, also affiliated with the Company, will present a poster at The 16th Conference in Genomics and Proteomics of Human Pathogens, 27-28 June, at Public Health England, Colindale, London.
Prof. Haq will present data on the detailed molecular characterisation of AIMSPRO® (Hyperimmune Caprine Sera, HICS) that has been carried out in collaboration with Public Health England (PHE). The work has involved the use of a range of cutting-edge biochemical techniques including surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization (SELDI) time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometry (a mass spectrometry method used for the analysis of sensitive samples such as protein mixtures) and 1D/2D gel electrophoresis with proteomic analysis. This has led to greater insights in to the mechanism of action of the active components contained within the biologic. High Performance Capillary Electrophoresis with SELDI-TOF mass spectrometry has confirmed AIMSPRO®’s batch-to-batch consistency and stability. The active component of the drug has been determined as a multi-protein peptide complex that uniquely traverses the blood brain barrier offering potentially greater versatility in targeting a range of neurodegenerative disease states.
AIMSPRO® is being developed as a novel, first-in-class biological treatment for a number of immune diseases where regulation and stabilisation of the immune system is required. It has also shown promise in being able to target various viral and bacterial pathogens either directly or indirectly through associated released endotoxins.
Details of the poster and timing are as follows:
Title: A Potential Anti-Viral Therapy. A First-in-Class Animal-Derived Serum Purified Extract for Human and Veterinary Use
Presented by: Prof. Syed Haq, CSO and CMO, Daval International Ltd.
Date: 27 June 2013
Presentation time: 5pm-7pm
The abstract will be available for download on Daval International’s website by 1 July, 2013, 07:00 am GMT, see www.davalinternational.com.

AIMSPRO® (Hyperimmune Caprine Sera, HICS) is a proprietary, purified, multi-protein-peptide conjugate complex being developed as a novel, first-in-class biological treatment for a number of immune diseases where regulation and stabilisation of the immune system is required. It is believed that the drug has a unique mechanism of action that supports its broad potential application in neurodegenerative diseases. AIMSPRO® has been granted a Specials License by the UK's MHRA and is also available in Australia under Categories A and B of the TGA's Special Access Scheme.
