Muscle wasting occurs in patients with cancer, muscular dystrophy, COPD, chronic kidney disease, nerve damage or heart failure. It also occurs with aging and in each situation, can have fatal consequences. AVGN7 is a viral gene therapeutic that blocks the inhibitory actions of myostatin, GDF11 and activin. In animal studies, its specificity for muscle and heart prevents their wasting without the dangerous side effects that have limited competing technologies.


EpigeneSys will exploit proprietary technology and initially use contract service providers and collaborators with known clinical cohorts to identify disease associated epigenetic biomarkers and epigenetic signatures.  Subsequently, the Company will develop diagnostic products/services using more appropriate [lower cost] targeted technology and these diagnostics will be provided as a clinical service in a CLIA lab.  The Company is seeking investors and partners to execute the commercialization strategy.

Klar Scientific

Klar specializes in the development of optical instruments for comprehensive materials characterization. Located near Washington State University, we understand the demands of scientific research. Let us know your application.

M3 Biotechnology

M3 Biotechnology is an innovative therapeutics company that has a novel platform of disease-modifying regenerative small molecules, particularly relevant to neurodegenerative diseases. The lead compound modifies growth-factor systems, where the activation is expected to stop disease progression and even restore lost function.

Bioelectrons LLC

Bioelectrons LL is establishing a novel foundation for an alternative to antibiotic-free wound dressings to eliminate infectious species from tissue via the continuous delivery of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). This highly effective and antibiotic-free scaffold which protects wounds against biofilm invasion without causing oxidative damage could change the way infected wounds are treated.

Chimeric Designs LLC

Chimeric Designs is developing new tools for the detection and treatment of cancer. Their innovative ideas enable rapid development and clinical entry of cancer drugs, with reduced dosage and fewer side effects.


DL ADV Tech is establishing a novel real-time and rapid system that can be used universally to quantify a wide variety of biomarkers in the fields of medical diagnostics, food safety, public health, and environmental monitoring. With this method, any molecule which can be attached to an antibody can be tested in the field or office without the use of expensive or complicated laboratory equipment.

Veterinary Clinical Pharmacology Lab

Many herding breed dogs have a genetic predisposition to adverse drug reactions involving over a dozen different drugs. The most serious adverse drug reactions involve several antiparasitic agents (ivermectin, milbemycin and related drugs), the antidiarrheal agent loperamide (Imodium), and several anticancer drugs (vincristine, doxorubicin, others). These drug sensitivities result from a mutation in the multidrug resistance gene (MDR1 gene). At Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine you can test your dog for multidrug sensitivity and prevent serious adverse drug reactions. We can work with your dog’s veterinarian to find appropriate drug doses or alternative drugs for your dog based on results of MDR1 testing.
