Revelation Biosciences is a clinical stage life sciences company focused on the development of immunologic-based therapies for the prevention and treatment of disease. The company has several product candidates in development:
- REVTx-99, the lead therapeutic candidate, is an intranasal immunomodulator for the early treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infection. An expansion of REVTx-99 therapeutic indications is planned, targeting early treatment and prevention of respiratory viral infection such as influenza A or B, parainfluenza, and respiratory syncytial virus. REVTx-200 is an intranasal immunomodulator adjunct to be used in combination with an intramuscular vaccination for more complete immunity.
- REVTx-200 is based on the same technology used in REVTx-99.
- REVDx-501, a rapid point of care diagnostic that can be used to detect any respiratory viral infection regardless of virus type without the need for specialized instrumentation.
