About GalaGen

Developing pharmaceuticals derived from dairy products and antibody-rich milk to treat gastrointestinal diseases. Antibodies are extracted from bovine milk or colostrum (milk produced by a cow for three days after a calf is born) in a manner that preserves active immunoglobulins. These immunoglobulins retain their anti-microbial activity when administered orally to humans. The company's bovine milk and colostrum-based products have shown significant efficacy in preventing major digestive tract infections. PRxO-IMMUNE was introduced in 1990 and is used to prevent diarrheal disease in newborn calves. As of September 1993, GalaGen was in clinical development of nine biopharmaceuticals for seven infectious conditions, including diarrhea in HIV-positive individuals and AIDS patients, duodenal ulcers, rotavirus infections, and hemolytic uremic syndrome. Also in development are three transgenic products: human lactoferrin, casein, and blood coagulation Factor IX. The company merged with ProCor in July 1992. Signed an agreement with Chiron in March 1995 to co-develop Helicobacter pylori antibodies.
