“We made strong progress during Q2 in the development of IMM-BCP-01, our antibody cocktail to combat SARS-CoV-2. We finalized the selection of antibodies for the cocktail, secured increased funding for the program from the Department of Defense, and demonstrated IMM-BCP-01’s potent neutralization activity against all SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern, including the Delta variant, in preclinical testing.
