We are an innovative company that set aside 10% of our sales to research and development, patents and generators being agreements academia-industry collaboration. Aware of the challenges imposed on us by an increasingly globalized world, we seek to expand our coverage to other countries by forming strategic alliances with companies in the industry with the launch of a subsidiary in Spain that allows us to generate innovative projects in other continents.
The Instituto Bioclon is a subusidiary company of Silanes and came about as a result of this union 1990. It emerged to take advantage of the opportunities for developing new biotechnologies and for becoming a world leader in the research, development, and production.
Bioclon-Silanes is the creator of third generation antivenoms of worldwide level, whose biotechnological characteristics make them different, that are highly safe, broadly efficacious, and having had no reports of severe secondary effects. They are produced using a technology that is 100% that of Bioclon-Silanes, and protected by patents in several countries. Our antivenoms are currently marketed in Mexico, Central and South America, United States of America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East through a regionalization program
Bioclon-Silanes is the only Mexican company that has obtained the designation “orphan drug” (the non-existence of a drug or medication for treating a specific disease) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States of America.
VINS Bioproducts Limited entered the arena of biologicals and bio-pharmaceuticals at the turn of the century with a view to produce life saving drugs for rural areas. Early on, the company focused on finding remedies for diseases that are endemic in India, the tropics and other less developed nations. True to its initial objective, the company commenced work to develop AntiSnake Venom Serum (ASVS), which was launched in early 2000. VINS’ ASVS, is a life saving product much needed in rural areas where people engaged in agriculture activities are regularly exposed to snake bites.
The product was well accepted and enjoys today, a market share of almost 40% of the Indian ASVS market. Spurred on by the initial success, the company took up the development of ASVS (Polyvalent from different African snake species including for deadly Black Mamba species). Today Vins manufactures several Snake Venom Antiserum country specific to the requirement by the MOH of various countries.
Anti Rabies Serum (ARS). World Health Organization (W.H.O.) estimates that 75% of deaths caused by rabies world-wide, occur in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan alone. W.H.O. recommends Anti Rabies Serum (ARS) along with anti rabies vaccine (ARV) to be injected in all Category III and immuno- compromised Category II rabies cases. The other products are Tetanus Antitoxin, and Diphtheria Antitoxin.
Seqirus, a CSL company, is a leading provider of essential vaccines and pharmaceuticals. We have served Australia’s healthcare needs for over a century and today we are Australia’s only local manufacturing facility for seasonal and pandemic influenza vaccines. As part of our heritage, Seqirus remains the sole provider of a unique range of products made in the national interest for the Australian government, including antivenoms and Q fever vaccine. As the only manufacturer in the world to supply antivenoms specific to a majority of Australia’s most venomous creatures, Seqirus serves a significant public health need. We are committed to reducing the burden of venomous bites and stings through awareness, education and community programmes in the Asia Pacific region. www.seqirus.com
MicroPharm Limited is a developer and manufacturer of therapeutic polyclonal antibodies for human and veterinary use. The Company’s core expertise lies in the raising of ovine antisera containing high levels of specific antibodies directed against antigens such as toxic molecules or viruses and the subsequent purification and modification of such antibodies to produce a range of immunotherapeutic products for clinical use. All are designed to treat acute, life-threatening emergencies, have been developed at the request of the medical profession and are required urgently either because no alternative exists or because any alternative is ineffective and/or unsafe. MicroPharm currently produces two antivenoms, ViperaTAb® for the treatment of envenomation by the European adder and EchiTAbG™ for the treatment of the carpet viper, Echis ocellatus. The Company has a number of products in development including: PolyCAb for the treatment of severe C. diff.; ColchiBIND for the treatment of colchicine poisoning; EBOTAb for the treatment of Ebola Virus Disease and ViperaVet™, for the treatment of dogs envenomed by one of the four medically important species of Vipera (adder) found throughout Western Europe. MicroPharm’s collaborators include Public Health England, University of Oxford, University of Leeds and the University of Edinburgh.
Venoms and venom peptides are sourced from our own venomous animals breeding facilities. Plant extracts and small molecules come from an exclusive partnership with a foreign academic Institution specialized in Plant Biochemistry and Pharmacology.
Collaboration with several Research Organizations have enabled LATOXAN to expand its catalogue to unique molecules and screening libraries. LATOXAN is also involved in Drug Discovery Research projects on antimicrobials, pain-killing, haematology, cancerology, dermatology.
As early as 1982 LATOXAN pioneered in the production of venoms within its facilities based in France and progressively developed a unique know-how for sourcing, farming, breeding and milking over 300 species of snakes, scorpions and batrachians from all over the world.
Animals come from breeding or capture missions and are kept several years active and productive.
For each production batch LATOXAN is able to provide upon demand certificate of analysis and traceability, certificate of origin, health veterinary certificate and a Venom Production Master File (for pharmaceutical industry).
The Global Snakebite Initiative (http://www.snakebiteinitiative.org) is an internationally-active, non-profit, charitable organisation, registered in Australia, but with world-wide vision, aims and membership. It is led by snake-bite experts who are dedicated to improving access to good quality, robustly tested, safe, effective antivenoms in the world’s poorest communities. It strives to provide a collaborative framework to address the neglected global tragedy of snake-bite envenoming. The Global Snakebite Initiative has been endorsed by the membership of the International Society on Toxinology (IST). Several senior representatives of GSI will be attending the meeting, including Professor José María Gutiérrez, Professor David Warrell, Professor Juan Calvete, Professor Alan Harvey, Professor Robert Harrison, Dr David Williams and Dr Aniruddha Ghose.
