Kindred Biosciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: KIN) and Astaria Global, LLC, announce an affiliate relationship to market and sell Alpha2EQ Therapy Products. Under the agreement, veterinarians will be able to purchase Alpha2EQ through collaboration with their KindredBio representative.
“We are delighted to partner with Astaria Global in bringing their innovative regenerative therapy to equine veterinarians,” said Jenna Mutch, KindredBio’s Vice President of Commercial. “Together, we are committed to supporting the health of horses and broadening access to medical care for the equine community.”
Alpha2EQ Therapy was launched in 2019. In this innovative new process, the body’s naturally occurring molecule, Alpha-2 Macroglobulin (α2M), is isolated and concentrated from the equine patient’s own blood. The concentrated Alpha2EQ serum is administered by a veterinarian at the injury site by injection to manage articular and soft tissue injuries in the horse.
“Our patented and advanced plasma technology is going to be instrumental in treating lameness, osteoarthritis, joint pain, and other issues that many animals face, especially in competition horses,” stated Bill Cramer, CEO of Astaria Global. “We are excited to join forces with KindredBio and make Alpha2EQ more widely available to equine veterinarians.”
