KIND-030, a monoclonal antibody targeting canine parvovirus (CPV), is partnered with
In this randomized, blinded, placebo-controlled study, KIND-030 was administered to dogs after they tested positive for CPV infection. The primary endpoint of the study was met. The parvovirus challenge resulted in 57% mortality rate in the control dogs compared to 0% mortality rate in the KIND-030 treated dogs. The dogs did not receive any supportive care or other treatments.
"Parvovirus is a devastating disease currently without any available treatment," said KindredBio's Chief Executive Officer,
