Rivertown BioSciences- RiverTown Biosciences, a small biopharmaceutical company in NY has has developed a treatment for Covid-19 lung scarring (aka pulmonary fibrosis). Based on early data from Covid-19 patients, as well as historical data from the related SARs and MERs outbreaks, we can anticipate that a significant number of people infected with COVID-19 will go on to develop pulmonary fibrosis, a permanent and debilitating disease. RT1840 was developed as an inhaled treatment, to deliver the small molecule drug directly into the affected lung tissue. RT1840 treatment reverses the progression of pulmonary fibrosis in models of the disease. This is a clinical phase asset to meet what is anticipated to be a growing problem in patients surviving Covid-19 infection.

In first place and one of our wild cards Lincoln Advantage Technologies– Lincoln is the developer of a patented respirator specifically designed to be worn during a pandemic caused by a respiratory based infectious disease. It is designed to be more effective than the currently used N-95 respirator, military style gas mask (NBC), or PAPR (powered air purifying respirator).Beyond front line medical staff and first responders, the device can be used by workers in the “critical infrastructure” segments of a country’s economy, comprised of health, defense, security, energy, finance, transportation, utilities and government at national, state and local levels. It can also be used to protect larger populations before the availability of a vaccine. The patented design has been developed with the assistance of the University of Illinois, University of Chicago Hospitals, Radius Product Development, HS Design, and Argonne National Laboratory among others. Lincoln’s design has been favorably reviewed by the DHS, HHS, DOD, and other agencies. Lincoln currently has fully functional, tested prototypes (TRL 4) and is engaged in further development of the device. The mask requires both FDA and NIOSH approval and is approximately 8-12 months from market
Hubspring Health- We have already deployed the COVID Hub to our current clients – they use this Hub as a mission-critical resource. In addition to securely communicating, it is their one-stop-shop for information dissemination. The COVID Hub includes a live facility directory, important COVID related phone numbers (Dept of Health, Infection Control, etc), schedule/shift tracking, COVID patient and symptom tracking, fingertip access to protocols, guidelines, recommendations, and critical updates. We believe the power in the COVID Hub is its ability to share and disseminate critical information in real-time – time and efficiency are not on our side right now- we want to make this tool available to all and as quickly as possible.
