Garretson, SD, January 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Braasch Biotech LLC, a biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing anti-somatostatin vaccines, today announced that it has received a Notice of Acceptance from the Republic of the Philippines Patent Office for a patent covering the use of Braasch’s product candidate, JH14-Somatovac®. Braasch vaccines are directed toward the archetype counter-regulatory hormone somatostatin. The effects of attenuating somatostatin levels by Braasch vaccines have resulted in increased efficiencies both in milk yields in dairy cows and lean meat production in pigs.
The global demand for animal protein (such as meat and milk proteins) continues to increase rapidly and is expected to double by 2050 (FAO). Increasing world population, emerging economies, increasing urbanization and other lesser factors, drives this demand. New initiatives will be required to enhance the sustainability of animal protein production without proportionally increasing land for agriculture.
“Braasch vaccines allow the vaccinated animal to achieve their own endogenous ability to be more productive,” stated Jeralyn Haffer, Braasch Biotech’s CEO. “Improving the production of farmed animals without the use of exogenous hormones, such as bovine somatotropin (rBst), antibiotics or pharmaceutical growth promoters is not only safe for the animal, but also the environment and human consumers. Our technologies aim to help provide an increasing supply of high quality protein that the world’s expanding population demands.”
Braasch Biotech’s current livestock enhancement portfolio already includes patents in the United States, Europe, Mexico, New Zealand, Israel, South Africa, Australia, Japan and Russia. Braasch is also pursuing patent applications in multiple jurisdictions in Latin America and Asia.
