Symbiotix Biotherapies Announces $2.3 Million Award from NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)


Symbiotix logoBoston, Mass. – June 1, 2015 –
Symbiotix Biotherapies, Inc. (“Symbiotix”) today announced that it was awarded a $2.3 million Phase 2 Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program award from the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The company, based in Boston, is developing a novel class of molecular therapeutics from the human microbiome.

Symbiotix’ lead clinical candidate, Polysaccharide A (PSA), is the first molecule to emerge from the microbiome and the $2.3 million NIH award enables the completion of key translational studies and production of material needed to take into human clinical trials as a novel treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS), said Prof. Lloyd Kasper, Professor of Medicine, Microbiology and Immunology at Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College, and Co-Founder of Symbiotix.

PSA is a first-in-class oral therapy that works through a novel mechanism of action related to activation of regulatory T cells, which exert an anti-inflammatory effect through the production of IL-10.

“Current FDA-approved therapies for multiple sclerosis offer only partial benefit for reduction of relapses and time to disability. However, all of these FDA-approved treatments have side effects some of which can be rather profound,” said Prof. Kasper. “We are developing PSA as a safe and effective new oral therapy for the over 500,000 US patients with multiple sclerosis. We expect PSA to have few, if any, significant side effects as it is derived from a commensal bacterial molecule that has evolved to modulate our immune system”.

The studies funded through this prestigious award will be conducted by Symbiotix in collaboration with the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College

“Our receipt of this third NIH award enables us to move PSA towards human clinical studies as a first-in-class oral treatment for multiple sclerosis,” said Nader Yaghoubi, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Symbiotix. “We are grateful for the continued support by NIH as we translate years of promising academic research funded by NIH into a breakthrough therapy for MS and other immune-mediated diseases”.

About Symbiotix Biotherapies, Inc.

Symbiotix Biotherapies, Inc. was founded on the basis of over a decade of research at Brigham & Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School, California Institute of Technology and Dartmouth College, and our Company’s scientific founders are distinguished thought leaders in the microbiome field. At Symbiotix, we are developing a novel class of molecular therapeutics based on molecules derived from the human microbiome. Our lead program represents the first molecule to emerge from the human microbiome and is a first-in-class oral agent for the treatment of serious immune-mediated diseases.

Honeywell Announces Miller Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems — for Mobility and Safety While Working At Heights On Vehicles, Elevated Machinery

Honeywell Announces Miller Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems — for Mobility and Safety While Working At Heights On Vehicles, Elevated Machinery

SMITHFIELD, RHODE ISLAND, USA — April 14, 2015 — Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced new Miller®Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems to provide workers with exceptional mobility and fall protection while working at heights on or above vehicles or elevated machinery.

Featuring an open track design, Miller Rigid Rail Systems are engineered to enable easy movement while reducing the risk of injury in elevated work environments on such applications as truck tarping, machinery maintenance, rail loading and unloading, and vehicle maintenance.

Three types of Miller Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems are available in various configurations and support center distances — making fall protection easily customizable and cost-effective:

  • The Inverted “L” System (single rigid rail) provides fall protection coverage for working at heights on vehicles or elevated machinery. The single foundation design is ideal where space for a foundation is limited.
  • The “T” Dual Track System (dual rigid rail) delivers dual fall protection coverage for working side-by-side on top of vehicles or elevated machinery. The single foundation design and parallel tracks make this system ideal for railroad tracks running parallel in close proximity — or two truck loading stations.
  • The “P” Series System (portable single rigid rail) is an economical solution for applications requiring temporary protection for working at heights. The modular design enables the system to be transported by forklift to a new location in just minutes.

The patented truss-integrated rigid rail on the Inverted “L” and “T” Dual Track systems allows for a single support column/foundation — for quicker and more flexible installation and reduced cost. Additional features include continuous lateral fall arrest protection along the full length of the system — which greatly reduces swing fall hazard. In addition, the system’s reduced fall clearance requirements, as compared to cable lifeline systems, enable workers to work on applications low to the ground. The systems may be self-installed — or installation services are available from Honeywell Technical Service by calling 800-873-5242.

These new Miller Rigid Rail Fall Arrest Systems are available immediately. For more information, visit http://hwll.co/rigid-rail, contact your nearest Miller/Honeywell distributor, or call Honeywell Customer Care in the US at 800-430-5490 or in Canada at 888-212-7233.
