COVIXO is comprised of nano-sized biovesicles that contain proteins, lipids, microRNAs, and messenger RNA. COVIXO drives cellular functionality including augmenting the type 1 interferon pathway (Data on file at EUCYT) that is important for anti-SARS-CoV-2 activity. Additionally, COVIXO potentiates cellular proliferation; thereby increasing the number of cells capable of attacking the invading pathogen. The unique mechanism of action for COVIXO enables each patient to generate their own adaptive immune response against SARS-CoV-2, including memory T cells and antibodies, which will further protect each patient from subsequent exposures and infections.
How COVIXO Works?
Cellular entry of SARS-CoV-2 requires binding of the spike (S) proteins to transmembrane serine protease 2 (TMPRSS2) where they become primed. Primed S proteins engage with angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) on the surface of cells triggering endocytosis of the virus into the cell. 5 Once inside the cell, SARS- CoV-2 releases its genetic material and commandeers the host cell machinery to generate additional viral particles. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention currently recommends that diagnostic tests assess the expression of nucleocapsid and RNase P genes as evidence of actively replicating virus 6. NanoCyt, a division of EUCYT, will be able to rapidly evaluate tests within 24 to 48 hours and identify those patients which would benefit most from COVIXO.
Private Cord Donation
Thousands of critically ill patients with blood diseases are in urgent need of a life-saving transplant. Umbilical cord blood, which is typically thrown away, is rich with the blood-forming cells that can give patients hope for a cure. Donating your baby’s cord blood to a public cord blood bank can help patients get the transplants they need.
EUCYT maintains the highest safety and quality-assurance standards for the collection and processing of donated birth tissue at our lab.
- The cord blood is collected from the umbilical cord and placenta after a healthy, full-term delivery.
- Donors are evaluated for communicable diseases and screened for medical and social risk factors.
- Donors must be negative or non-reactive for: HIV 1 & 2, Hepatitis B and C, Syphilis, HTLV, and the West Nile and Zika viruses, as well as bacterial and fungal contamination.
Private Stem Cell Banking
With all of the amazing scientific breakthroughs using stem cells, no expectant mother should ever throw away precious cord blood. Stem cells are currently being investigated to treat several conditions such as cancers as well as brain and spinal cord injuries just to name a few. Our Private Cord Banking Division will work with you to set up an account so you can safely store your cord blood for future use.
