About Revelation Biosciences Inc.
Revelation Biosciences, Inc. is a clinical stage life sciences company focused on the development of immunologic‑based therapies for the prevention and treatment of disease. The Company has several product candidates in development. REVTx‑99, the lead therapeutic candidate, is an intranasal immunomodulator for the early treatment of SARS‑CoV‑2 infection. An expansion of REVTx‑99 therapeutic indications is planned, targeting early treatment and prevention of respiratory viral infection such as influenza A or B, parainfluenza, and respiratory syncytial virus. REVTx‑200 is an intranasal immunomodulator adjunct to be used in combination with an intramuscular vaccination for more complete immunity. REVTx‑200 is based on the same technology used in REVTx-99. In addition to the Company’s therapeutic pipeline, Revelation is also developing REVDx‑501, a rapid point of care diagnostic that can be used to detect any respiratory viral infection regardless of virus type without the need for specialized instrumentation.
