r. Bryan Ardis recently revealed that covid has its origins in snake venom, and many people don’t know that the starting point for most pharmaceutical research is snake venom.
A UK company named “Venomtech,” has announced that they have a venom peptide and venom fragment library, used for drug discovery – also used in pesticides.
The announcement “Venomtech announces new drug development collaboration with Charles River,” was published widely by biotech media.
The announcement states:
Venomtech is collaborating with Charles River Laboratories, International Inc. to help drug developers explore venom-derived compounds for a wide range of therapeutic targets. This newly formed collaboration will bring together Venomtech’s biology expertise and vast venom-derived peptide library, with Charles River’s drug development and screening knowhow, providing pharmaceutical manufacturers with a one-stop service to explore this unique natural resource.
Venomtech’s Targeted-Venom Discovery Array™ (T-VDA™) libraries provide researchers with a straightforward solution to rapidly screen thousands of individual venom fragments, with each array specifically designed to maximise hits for a specific target.
The announcement carries this statement from Venomtech CEO Paul Grant:
Venomtech has been at the forefront of venom research for drug discovery for more than a decade… we can now showcase our innovative technology, introducing the wider industry to the potential of venoms for the successful delivery of more leads, more quickly, for a broad range of [cellular] targets.
…we can now offer our clients access to bespoke venom libraries, potentially accelerating their [drug] discovery pipelines using this powerful natural resource.
The Venomtech company is described as follows:
Venomtech is a global leader for venom research enterprises, based out of world-class laboratories at Discovery Park in Kent, UK.
…[we are] helping our customers worldwide make pioneering advances in drug discovery, crop protection, and cosmetics. We have the largest library of naturally sourced venom-derived compounds in the UK, from a growing collection of vertebrate and invertebrate species.
Many in the media are having a difficult time believing Dr. Ardis’ claims, but one only has to look at the Venomtech website, to see that it’s more than just a pos…
