Share

Altasciences announced today that they have been selected by Leidos Health to guide and support the development of RAP-103 peptide as a chemical nerve agent therapeutic on behalf of the Medical CBRN Defense Consortium and funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).

Altasciences will conduct the required Safety Testing, all IND-enabling studies (non-GLP and GLP), the necessary Phase I clinical trials, and associated bioanalytical analysis.
