Dear Valued Customer,
While the COVID-19 crisis continues, I want to assure you that the PolyPeptide Group remains ready to support your business. Our sites are operating at almost-full capacity. At the same time, we have put numerous steps in place to protect the health and safety of our employees, including rigorous cleaning and infection control procedures.
Our company is also actively engaged in helping to find treatments and cures for COVID-19. Within the next few weeks, we will have teams at almost all sites working on projects to:
- Develop a peptide-based vaccine or vaccine cocktail against the virus
- Use peptides as immuno-modulators to allow our own immune system to fight this disease
- Use anti-inflammatory peptides to fight the excessive release of cytokines that this disease may cause
- Develop entry-inhibiting peptides that may inhibit coronavirus’ ability to enter human lung cells
We would be honored to help further your projects to combat the virus.
Our lines of communication remain open as we work to support your projects, your business, and your patients. Thank you for your ongoing partnership during this challenging time.
Wishing you and your family good health,
Jane Salik, CEO
