Description

About Ventria Bioscience Inc.

Ventria Bioscience (www.Ventria.com) is a privately held biopharmaceutical company whose vision is to improve human longevity and quality of life by developing and commercializing innovative medicines and cell-culture media components derived from ExpressTec. Our team is entrepreneurial, creative, and committed. We share a vision to make a difference in global health by leveraging world-leading science to develop new products that are used by leaders in gene therapy, cell therapy, vaccines, and regenerative medicines.

We conduct our operations and our interactions with each other guided by the principles of honesty, integrity, respect, teamwork, transparency, and accountability toward each other and the company. Every day, our employees focus their passion, skill, scientific and business expertise, entrepreneurial drive, and thirst for knowledge on solving some of the most challenging problems. Our people and our company are driven by our vision of improving longevity and quality of life for people all over the globe.

ExpressTec is a patented, plant-based technology for manufacturing recombinant proteins with a ten-fold higher yield than other plant-based systems. It delivers meaningful and sustainable advantages by enabling the development of product opportunities that were previously inaccessible due to technical and economic constraints. 

Ventria Bioscience’s internal therapeutic pipeline is focused on safely improving clinical outcomes in infectious disease. Our therapeutic products are based on naturally occurring, orally available proteins that are impractical to source naturally, such as the beneficial components of human colostrum and breastmilk. Ventria Bioscience is leveraging the multiple advantages of ExpressTec to enable cost-effective production of these proteins on a therapeutic scale. In addition to products in the clinical pipeline, Ventria has partnered with The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, University of Maryland, University of Kansas and MassBiologics (Part of UMass Medical School) to develop a new therapeutic targeting Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (or ETEC), a leading bacterial cause of diarrhea in the developing world. ETEC accounts for an estimated 280 million to 400 million cases of diarrhea a year in children under five and an estimated 157,000 deaths per year. The bacterial infection also is implicated in travelers’ diarrhea. This product has been shown effective in preclinical studies and is scheduled for a Phase 2 human clinical study during 2021.

InVitria (www.InVitria.com)is a division of Ventria Bioscience Inc., and was founded with the goal of providing customers with plant-based alternatives to eliminate blood and serum components from manufacturing processes used for making gene therapies, cell therapies, vaccines and regenerative medicines. Blood-derived proteins and serum are undesirable because they pose a risk of transmitting infectious agents such as prions (Mad Cow Disease) and virus such as SARS-CoV-2 and HIV, for example. In addition, blood derived products and serum are undefined leading to high batch-to-batch variation. For these reasons, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), European Medicines Agency (EMA), and other regulatory bodies discourage use of these components.

CuraVive (www.CuraVive.com) is also a division of Ventria Bioscience Inc., and was founded recently to make functional food ingredients that provide improved safety, nutritional health and shelf life. The first product was commercialized in Q1, 2022, called LysoSure Liquid. The new product pipeline is currently in development to extend CuraVive’s product portfolio.

Ventria Bioscience has an extensive intellectual property portfolio of more than 100 issued patents, exclusive licenses to issued patents, and patents in prosecution. These patents provide long-term sustainable advantage to Ventria Bioscience’s manufacturing technology and product portfolio.
