CEO Dr. Eddie J. Sullivan to Discuss How SAB’s Unique Drug Development Capabilities Are Enabling
Rapid Response Production of New Therapeutics to Treat Emerging Zoonotic Infectious Diseases

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Jun 14, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SAB Biotherapeutics (SAB), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company with a novel immunotherapy platform that produces specifically targeted, high potency, fully-human polyclonal antibodies at scale, today announced that Eddie J. Sullivan, PhD, co-founder, president, CEO, will serve as an expert panelist during BIO Digital 2021. The panel, "One Health Preparedness and Response: Translating Surveillance of Emerging Zoonotic Diseases into Biotechnology," will be moderated by Catherine Machalaba, MPH, PhD, senior policy advisor and senior scientist at EcoHealth Alliance. The panel is scheduled on Monday, June 14, 2021, from 11:05 AM to 11:50 AM EDT.

One Health, or the concept that animal, human, and environmental health are interconnected, has been made readily apparent by the recent COVID-19 pandemic. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 60% of human diseases are zoonotic and that 75% of diseases discovered over the past decade originate in animals. The panelists, who include public health experts and Company leaders, will examine how the biotechnology industry can contribute to solutions to ensure the world is prepared for continuing zoonotic threats to human health.

Dr. Sullivan commented, "We have spent nearly two decades at SAB developing and optimizing our unique platform that leverages transgenic cows to rapidly produce large quantities of highly potent, fully-human therapeutic polyclonal antibodies targeted at specific diseases. Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic has provided us the opportunity to fully integrate and accelerate scale-up of our drug development, regulatory and production capabilities. We look forward to sharing what we have learned and providing a model for future response with our colleagues committed to applying 21st century biotechnology to combat these ongoing threats to global well-being."
