A Company focused on development of immunotherapy against common allergenic molds such as Alternaria & Cladosporium




Dec. 3, 2013 - OTTAWA, Canada -- VLN Biotechnology (VLNB) is pleased to announce the opening of its new research laboratory and office.  Located in the Canotek Business Park in Canada’s capital city Ottawa, the facility boasts state of the art equipment designed to facilitate VLNB’s development of novel diagnostics and immunotherapy to relieve the symptoms of mold allergies.

Said Dr. Sheela Vijay, President of VLNB, “We’re delighted to open this facility that promises to accelerate our commercial development of novel immunotherapy.  This Company has been a lifelong dream for our Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Hari Vijay, who founded VLNB after a distinguished research career at Health Canada studying pollen and mold allergies”.

The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (http://www.acoem.org/) reports that approximately 5% of Americans (over 15 million people) have allergic symptoms from exposure to mold.  Exposure is generally unavoidable as mold and mold spores are found in almost every moist environment & thrive in a wide range of temperature and humidity.   Typical indoor molds in North America are the Penicillium and Aspergillus species, while prevalent outdoor mold species areCladosporium and Alternaria.  Pharmacotherapy (e.g. oral or nasal anti-histamines, nasal decongestants) is used to palliate the symptoms of mold allergies but does not offer a cure.  Immunotherapy to treat mold allergies offers significant advantages versus pharmacotherapy because it can ameliorate the underlying pathophysiology of the allergy in a near-permanent manner.

VLNB seeks to partner with companies and research organizations to accelerate commercial development of immunotherapy to treat mold allergies.  VLNB also offers customized consulting services led by Dr. Hari Vijay.
