Sigyn Therapeutics Reports the Successful Completion of a Study to Address Gram-Positive Bacterial Toxins Associated with Sepsis
In the Past Year, Sigyn Therapy™ Has Been Validated to Address a Broad-Spectrum of Inflammatory Mediators, Gram-Negative Bacterial Toxins, Gram-Positive Bacterial Toxins and Viral Pathogens
SAN DIEGO, CA, Dec. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – Sigyn Therapeutics, Inc. (OTC Markets: SIGY), a medical technology company focused on the treatment of pathogen-associated indications that precipitate sepsis, today announced that preclinical invitro studies have validated the ability of Sigyn Therapy to deplete the presence of gram-positive bacterial toxins from human blood plasma.
Sigyn Therapy is a dual-function blood purification technology that extracts pathogen sources of life-threatening inflammation in concert with the broad-spectrum elimination of inflammatory mediators that fuel sepsis, the leading cause of hospital deaths worldwide.
Candidate pathogen-associated indications for Sigyn Therapy include but are not limited to the treatment of emerging bioterror and pandemic threats, drug-resistant pathogens, hepatic encephalopathy, and community-acquired pneumonia, which is the leading cause of death among infectious diseases, the leading cause of death in children under 5 years of age, and a catalyst for ~50% of sepsis and septic shock cases.
In the bacterial toxin study, the Company is reporting that clinically relevant levels of the gram-positive bacterial toxins peptidoglycan (PG) and lipoteichoic acid (LTA) were infused into 1000ml of human blood plasma and circulated through an adult version of Sigyn Therapy at normal treatment blood-flow rates. The invitro clearance of both targets was rapid, with an ~50% reduction of PG at one hour and a ~70% reduction of LTA at two hours. In addition to being potent activators of sepsis, there is a heightened interest in gram-positive pathogens based on the continuing emergence of drug resistant species, including antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
The data resulting from the study will be incorporated into an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) that the Company is preparing for submission to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to support the initiation of human clinical studies.
“We created Sigyn Therapy to perform functions that are beyond the reach of drugs and to overcome the constraints of blood purification technologies limited to the individual targeting of either cytokines, endotoxin, or viruses,” stated Jim Joyce, Chairman and CEO of Sigyn Therapeutics. “Since reporting the outcome of our first study one year ago today, we have collected an expansive amount of data that supports the breadth of our therapeutic vision.”
In the past year, a series of invitro studies have validated the ability of Sigyn Therapy to address endotoxin (gram-negative bacterial toxin), peptidoglycan and lipoteichoic acid (gram-positive bacterial toxins), viral pathogens (including COVID-19), hepatic toxins (ammonia, bile acid & bilirubin), cytovesicles that transport inflammatory cargos, and relevant proinflammatory cytokines (TNF-a, IL-1b, IL-6) that underlie the cytokine storm that precipitates sepsis.
About Sigyn Therapeutics™
Sigyn Therapeutics is a medical technology company focused on the treatment of pathogen-associated indications that precipitate sepsis, the #1 cause of hospital deaths worldwide. Sigyn Therapy™ is a dual-function blood purification technology that extracts pathogen sources of life-threatening inflammation in concert with the broad-spectrum elimination of inflammatory mediators from the bloodstream.
The therapeutic opportunities for Sigyn Therapy include but are not limited to emerging bioterror and pandemic threats, drug-resistant pathogens, hepatic encephalopathy, and community-acquired pneumonia, which is the leading cause of death among infectious diseases, the leading cause of death in children under 5 years of age, and a catalyst for ~50% of sepsis and septic shock cases.
To support widespread implementation, Sigyn Therapy is a single-use disposable device designed for use on the established infrastructure of hemodialysis and continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) machines located in hospitals and clinics worldwide. Incorporated within Sigyn Therapy is a formulation of adsorbent components that provide more than 200,000 square meters (~50 acres) of surface area on which to adsorb and remove bloodstream targets. Unlike devices that concentrate therapeutic targets in the blood-path, Sigyn Therapy extracts targets from the bloodstream, which eliminates their ability to interact with blood cells during treatment.
