We are the first to show that high risk HPV TrDNA can be quantified with qPCR and Sequence-Capture assays and that high-risk HPV genomes can be assembled from TrDNA. We have developed qPCR and Sequence-Capture, Next-Generation Sequencing-based, HPV-Trans Renal DNA (TrDNA) assays to quantify high risk HPV DNA, which can be useful for cervical cancer screening. Our HPV TrDNA assay compares favorably in Specificity and Sensitivity to commercial HPV tests, making them an ideal alternative for low resource settings.

Aegle Therapeutics Corp. is a first in class, Phase 1/2a ready, biotechnology company isolating extracellular vesicles (“EVs”) from allogeneic bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells to treat severe dermatological conditions, including burns and epidermolysis bullosa (“EB”), a rare pediatric connective tissue disorder, and to prevent scarring. Aegle’s EV therapy, using its proprietary platform isolation technology, has the potential to demonstrate a safer, lower cost means of harnessing the regenerative healing power of stem cells. Aegle believes its therapy has the potential for functional regeneration and organization of complex tissue structures that can enhance healing, reduce scarring, minimize contraction and improve overall cosmesis.
