Immunosyn Announces Proposed Agreements for Distribution of the Biopharmaceutical SF-1019 in Utah
Posted Aug 23 2008 11:50pm
NOTE: SF-1019 is not FDA approved for MS at this time. I am passing this along because there has been a lot of interest in this topic. I do not plan to fly to Utah.
Regarding SF-1019 according to Immunosyn: "Research suggests that SF-1019 has the potential to affect a number of clinical conditions including...auto-immune disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS)..."Personally, I have only seen that Alan Osmond claims that it is helpful for MS, so I am still skeptical.
LA JOLLA, Calif., July 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Immunosyn Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: IMYN) announced today that the distribution of SF-1019 in the State of Utah is anticipated to begin shortly through Renewed Hope Clinic in Beaver, Utah.
Immunosyn is negotiating an exclusive license agreement for the administration and distribution of SF-1019 in the State of Utah with Utah Biopharmaceutical Laboratories, LLC.
Immunosyn has been advised by Argyll Biotechnologies, LLC, the licensor of SF-1019, Immunosyn’s strategic partner and its largest shareholder, that Argyll Biotech is negotiating a three-party agreement with its current domestic third party manufacturer and Utah Biopharmaceutical Laboratories for Utah Biopharmaceuticals Laboratories to be a third party manufacturer of SF-1019 in the State of Utah. Argyll Biotech has worked for several years on developing the manufacturing processes, protocols, safety procedures and guidelines for SF-1019. Immunosyn, together with Argyll Biotech and Utah Biopharmaceutical Laboratories, is working to finalize Distribution Management and Information Component Systems that will be implemented to define protocols to assure patient safety and regulatory compliance in Utah prior to treatment commencing.
The combination of the proposed license and manufacturing agreements will allow for SF-1019 to be administered in the State of Utah exclusively by Utah Biopharmaceutical Laboratories through Renewed Hope Clinic which is located in Beaver, Utah.
"I am excited to have the ability to treat patients with this therapeutic modality, which is not yet available elsewhere in the U.S. My review of the scientific background, preclinical testing, initial safety evaluations and studies performed under compassionate waivers, coupled with the therapeutic benefits I have witnessed, give me confidence in the benefit my patients will receive from SF-1019 treatment," said Mitchell J. Melling, MD, Manager of Utah Biopharmaceutical Laboratories, LLC.
Stephen D. Ferrone, President and CEO of Immunosyn, stated, "Utah Biopharmaceutical Laboratories sought the ability to distribute SF-1019 in the State of Utah as a result of the compelling desire of patients who are seeking this treatment after their having failed conventional, FDA approved therapy. This patient demand stemmed from the perceived benefit of treatment in patients who participated in early preclinical studies and who desire ongoing access to SF-1019 to alleviate their symptoms."
Ferrone added, "Argyll Biotech advises us that they plan to continue the process to obtain full regulatory approvals for the marketing of SF-1019 in both Europe and the U.S."
"This is an exciting early-stage development as this puts revenue producing capabilities within short-term range for the company," stated Douglas A. McClain, Jr., Chairman of the Board and CFO of Immunosyn.
