Today’s Veterinary Business Staff
Brakke Consulting will help with the sale and licensing of technology used in a Texas company’s newly patented snakebite vaccine for companion animals and horses.
Tejas Discovery and Research’s technology “provides for encapsulation and a steady, slow-release presentation of detoxified rattlesnake venom to the immune system, which results is a high-titer, long-lasting antibody response without any local or systemic adverse events,” Brakke reported.
“Snake envenomation is an important presenting problem at veterinary clinics,” said Tejas co-founder William Campaigne, DVM.
In other news, Brakke:
- Appointed Jim Kroman to its team of consultants. Kroman retired in 2017 as executive director of business development, licensing and project management at Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica.
- Launched the tracking study “COVID-19: Impact on Pet Care.” The study will be conducted in three waves beginning in May, Brakke reported, and is available for purchase by emailing senior consultant John Volk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
