VIRxSYS Corporation Company Profile

03:59 EDT 25th September 2017 | BioPortfolio

VIRxSYS Corporation is a privately held biotech company. The Company was founded in 1998 and is located in the biotech corridor of Gaithersburg, Maryland. Using technology first developed by and exclusively licensed from The Johns Hopkins University, VIRxSYS has developed a gene delivery system (a vector) from a human lentivirus for the treatment of serious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and cancer.
With the successful development of numerous genetic and therapeutic payloads, there have been great promises of genetic medicine. However, most of these promises have been unfulfilled because of the medical industry's inability to develop a transport system to deliver the genetic and therapeutic payloads into targeted cells efficiently, reproducibly and permanently.

Today this is no longer an issue, as VIRxSYS has solved this final hurdle that will now allow the promises of genetic medicine to become a reality. Payloads delivered by other vectors previously and currently used have serious drawbacks, while payloads delivered via VIRxSYS' lentiviral vector (i) have staying power within a cell because the payloads become a permanent part of the cell's genetic material, (ii) have a 95%+ delivery efficiently compared to approximately 20% to 50% for other viral vectors, (iii) can reproduce this delivery efficiently under optimal and sub optimal conditions.
