Sorrento Therapeutics Inc. (SRNE) Announces Collaborative Development Agreement with Scripps Research

Sorrento Therapeutics Inc. is a development-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing therapeutic antibodies for the treatment of disease conditions such as cancer, inflammation, metabolic disease and infectious disease. The company today announced it has entered into an antibody discovery and development collaboration with The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Calif.

Per the agreement, Sorrento will obtain exclusive, worldwide rights to Scripps Research’s novel quorum sensing-based technology, which was developed to prevent and treat Staphylococcus aureus (commonly known as Staph) infections, including Methicillin-resistant Staph. aureus (MRSA). MRSA’s resistance to antibiotics makes it a concern to healthcare officials. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 94,000 cases of acute MRSA infections in the United States led to 19,000 deaths in 2005.

“We are impressed by the promising animal data presented by our colleagues at Scripps Research and are pleased to collaborate on the development of human vaccines and fully human antibody therapeutics to help address the important public health issue of MRSA infections,” Dr. Henry Ji, chief scientific officer of Sorrento stated in the press release. “This discovery program represents a novel approach to fighting MRSA, and we also see interference with quorum sensing as a more general approach to address the serious issue of antibiotic resistance beyond MRSA.”

According to the press release, Sorrento will use its quorum sensing-based technology to identify fully human antibody candidates that disrupt the biological communication processes of MRSA.

“We have published that antibodies targeting the quorum sensing process are protective against MRSA infections in established animal models,” Dr. Kim Janda of Scripps Research stated. “Sorrento Therapeutics’ human antibody library will be a critical resource in identifying fully human antibodies that can be developed into clinical therapeutics against MRSA.”

ICOP Digital, Inc. (ICOP) Announces Texas State Contract

ICOP Digital, Inc., an industry-leading company focused on advancing digital surveillance technology solutions, announced this morning that it has been chosen by the State of Texas Office of the Comptroller, Texas Procurement and Support Services Division (TPSS) to supply in-car video solutions. This contract will allow authorized users, including state agencies, local governments, municipalities and higher education institutions, to bypass using their own procurement process and readily acquire ICOP in-car video solutions.

According to the press release, the contract’s initial term expires on October 31, 2010, with options for renewals for four additional years. ICOP has similar contracts including GSA, HGAC, New Mexico, and Utah. “This is great news for ICOP,” stated Bob Bradley, Director of National Sales and Marketing. “Any time we can shorten the sales cycle by securing orders via a state contract, we remove another barrier to increasing our quarterly potential.”

“In addition to making the process faster and easier to get what agencies need to do their jobs, we are particularly pleased to have this relationship with Texas as they have always been a very strong proponent of in-car video. Most agencies were equipped with VHS technology through a state funded initiative several years ago. This contract ensures that they can now upgrade to a reliable state-of-the-art solution for the best quality video evidence on the market today, at an economical price,” added Dave Owen, Chief Executive Officer at ICOP.
