InvisiMaskā„¢ Nasal Spray

The InvisiMask nasal spray is an investigational daily human antibody nasal spray designed to neutralize SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, from airborne droplets and particles in the nasal cavity, the primary entry point of SARS-CoV-2 infection.

At the lowest dose of 25μg, the antibodies provided at least 10 hours of protection against infection in mice exposed to the highest viral load tested (107 virus particles administered intra-nasally).

Potential of the InvisiMask nasal spray

We envision the InvisiMask nasal spray to be used daily to provide an important line of personal protection against SARS-CoV-2 infection.
 

How does the InvisiMask nasal spray work?

Antibodies administered by InvisiMask nasal spray

Antibodies adhere to the upper respiratory tract

Antibodies neutralize the SARS-CoV-2 virus

The Eureka antibodies function by binding to the S1 spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 and preventing the virus from binding to the ACE2 receptor on cells in the upper respiratory system. This blocks SARS-CoV-2 from entering cells and triggering an infection.

Key attributes and advantages of the InvisiMask nasal spray

Key Attributes Advantages

Nasal spray format

  • Low cost and ease for personal administration

  • Provides at least 10 hours of protection in mice exposed to the highest viral load tested

  • Use as an additional means of protection against infection, for high risk individuals, and in situations in which face mask wearing is impractical

  • Storage at room temperature with long shelf life in comparison to vaccines (sub-zero storage) will simplify distribution and expand access

  • Complement to vaccines, therapeutics and other preventive measures such as face masks in slowing spread of COVID-19

Anti-SARS-CoV-2 human IgG antibodies

  • Anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibody treatments have already been approved by the FDA for confirmed cases of COVID-19

  • Antibodies provide active protection in neutralizing the SARS-CoV-2 virus

  • IgG antibody manufacturing process is well-established and versatile for large scale production
  • Eureka’s InvisiMask antibodies have been tested against more than 20 SARS-CoV-2 variants reported in COVID-19 patients, including the highly infectious D614G mutant

  • Human antibody reduces risk of immune response to nasal spray made with foreign peptides or non-human originated antibodies

High Affinity and Specificity Antibodies

  • Provides potent neutralization of SARS-CoV-2 virus at low doses

  • Low risk of cross-reactivity with non-spike protein targets

Proprietary Adhesion Technology

  • Increases the retention time of the antibody on respiratory mucosal surfaces and extends the duration of protection against infection
