EV Biologics, Inc. formerly Yulong Eco-Materials Limited (OTC PINK:YECO) today announced that it intends to utilize the advanced instrumentation and research staff at the Vanderbilt Institute of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (VINSE) and the Vanderbilt Center for Structural Biology (CSB) in the development of extracellular vesicle (EV)-based diagnostics and therapeutics.
Founded in 1873, Vanderbilt University located in Nashville, Tennessee is a pre-eminent and legendary private research university comprised of 10 distinct schools and colleges on one centralized campus. Regularly ranked as one of the nation’s top 15 universities by publications such as “U.S. News & World Report”, with programs that rank in the top 10, Vanderbilt is a world-class institution. The University was recently ranked #10 in Reuter’s assessment of the World’s Most Innovative Universities. (Source: Vanderbilt University Website – https://www.vanderbilt.edu/csb).
Quality Control (QA/QC) is the cornerstone of the Company’s plan for Current Good Manufacturing Practices cGMP development of EV diagnostics and therapeutic products. The Vanderbilt CSB and VINSE are extraordinary research facilities that have the capability of performing nanoscale analytical methods such as Atomic Force Microscopy, Electron Microscopy and Nano Tracking Analysis. The Vanderbilt University research staff has extensive experience with nanoparticle characterization methods that will form an essential part of QA/QC for the Company’s therapeutic development.
The Company is making a significant investment in its own analytical equipment to facilitate novel solutions to overcome the challenges in EV product characterization and standardization. EV analysis performed by research staff at Vanderbilt will complement and confirm the Company’s own EV development data and will provide the orthogonal characterization for EV research recommended by the International Society for Extracellular Vesicles.
CMO, Dr. Jason Sanders, said “having access to this kind of extremely specialized instrumentation and experts in nanoparticle analysis at such a highly respected institution as Vanderbilt will be instrumental in advancing our R&D program for biopharmaceuticals and will enable meticulous analysis for preparation of Investigational New Drug applications (IND’s) to the FDA for maximum efficiency in EV drug development.”
The Company is currently in the process of getting a new trading symbol with FINRA after successfully getting our name changed. Our goal is to become current in our OTC filings by the end of October with OTC Markets
