The Mirpuri Foundation announces groundbreaking research as a shareholder and investor of TTxD – Trained Therapeutix Discovery, Inc. (“TTxD”), the biotech company founded by Jean Boulle Medtech at the forefront of a unique immunotherapy strategy, that is now testing its platform for a completely new approach for treating Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (“ARDS”), which could prove to be highly effective in saving the lives of Covid–19 patients.

TTxD’s proprietary technology is based on over a decade of research and development using bioengineering methods to produce nanobiologic therapeutics that can induce an immune response against tumors or dampen hyperinflammation after organ transplantation. TTxD has an established library of nanobiologic therapeutics relevant to many applications and potentially fatal diseases, including ARDS. 

Under an exclusive license from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York and Radboud University Medical Center in the Netherlands, TTxD applies advanced bioengineering methods to develop nanobiologic therapeutics. Nanobiologics are materials constructed from molecular building blocks that our body produces naturally. The advantage of this approach is that nanobiologic therapy ‘hijacks’ natural mechanisms to regulate the immune system with materials that are inherently well tolerated by the body. 

Leighton Durham, Director of Jean Boulle Medtech, said: “Our exceptional team has a unique vision and the backing of many in the global scientific community for their ground-breaking work. There is a real chance to save lives through the further development of these technologies for Covid-19 patients.”

Paulo Mirpuri, President of the Mirpuri Foundation, states that: “Medical Research has always been one of the key pillars of the Mirpuri Foundation. In such unprecedented times like the ones we are living now, it is with a great sense of responsibility and commitment that we announce that this project took a vital turn to help save Covid-19 patients. Moreover, the research is addressing the pandemic now but it will have a beneficial health impact long after the crisis.”
