(OTCQB:NBIO) ("Nascent Biotech" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has received initial In-Vitro study results from its collaboration with Syracuse University showing that Pritumumab ("PTB") successfully blocked viral entry into cells. Based on these results, PTB and will be advanced to laboratory-based animal studies.
Alison Patteson, an assistant professor of physics, is leading a team researching the connections between the COVID-19 virus and pritumumab, a naturally occurring antibody, which has been used to inhibit cancer and tumor growth. Patteson tested whether the antibody blocks SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, from entering cells. "Evidence has been found that the antibody does block the uptake to viral particles," Patteson said.

Nascent Senior Medical Consultant, Dr. Navpaul Singh M.D., stated, "the In Vitro results indicating that PTB can block uptake of COVID-19 is great as less viral load corresponds to less patient symptoms. These results may be suggestive of use in a combination therapy with drugs targeting other pathways. "
