SILVER SPONSORS

Ophirex, Inc. is a Public Benefit Corporation focused on antidotes for acute life- threatening toxidromes such as snakebite envenoming. We are committed to addressing the medical needs associated with snakebite and other life-threatening diseases and conditions with common mechanisms of illness and injury. Presently, we are focused on developing an affordable, accessible, oral treatment for snakebite envenoming. Our lead drug candidate, varespladib, blocks sPLA2, a prevalent, highly toxic component of venom found in at least 95% of snake venom types. Varespladib is intended for worldwide human and veterinary use, with an oral formulation for use in the field, where most bites occur, and an intravenous formulation for use in medical settings for situations where it might be preferable to the oral formulation (e.g. vomiting or unstable patients). By making such a treatments available, we hope to substantially reduce morbidity and mortality of snakebite, as well as provide enormous savings to individual patients and healthcare systems.  The concept for developing small molecule antidotes became reality when Dr. Lewin met Mr. Jerry Harrison, a renowned musician and successful entrepreneur best known for his membership in the Modern Lovers and the Talking Heads. With additional support from family and friends, the two launched Ophirex and joined forces with global leaders working to raise awareness of snakebite as a neglected tropical disease. Dr. Lewin serves as Chief Scientific Officer of Ophirex and, as well, Director for the Center for Exploration and Travel Health at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. He is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and is a member of the WHO Snakebite Envenoming Working Group
