Todos Medical Announces First Long COVID Clinic Laboratory Services Agreement for Long COVID Panel Biomarker Partnership with Amerimmune Diagnostics
New York, NY, and Tel Aviv, ISRAEL, Aug. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Todos Medical, Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF), a comprehensive medical diagnostics and related solutions company, today announced the first commercial patient samples have been received for its Long COVID Panel biomarker partnership between its CLIA/CAP certified lab Provista Diagnostics and Amerimmune Diagnostics, a CLIA/CAP certified laboratory with expertise in immune diagnostics and a leader in the field of clinical immunology and immune assessment of acute and long-COVID. The patient samples received were requisitioned by Long COVID Clinic RTHM (Real Time Health Monitoring), the partnership’s first Long COVID Clinic client, collected at a Quest Diagnostics service center in the United States and shipped to Amerimmune’s lab in McLean, Virginia for processing. The cPass neutralizing antibody and total antibody portion of the panel is being subcontracted to Provista in Atlanta, GA and the data sent back to Amerimmune to include in their report back to the RTHM physician. The various biomarker tests included in the Long COVID Panel are covered by commercial insurance and Medicare.
Additionally, RTHM physicians are now working with Todos’ subsidiary 3CL Pharma on its Tollovid™ 3CL protease inhibitor immune support supplement case study series, and will now begin to monitor biomarker data with the Long COVID Panel. The objective is for Long COVID Panel data to be included in Todos’ ongoing Tollovid case study series going forward to corroborate perceived patient benefit. Todos intends to use data gathered during the case study series and its ongoing IRB-waived market research study to inform Tollovid dosing recommendations for clients. Additionally, Todos is planning a controlled Tollovid Phase 2 study.
“We are really pleased to see the pieces coming together to allow for our evaluation of Tollovid as a potentially important supplement product for Long COVID,” said Dr. Jennifer Curtin, RTHM’s Chief Medical Officer. “We have had patients who have experienced tremendous results on Tollovid and others who did not benefit as much. As such, we are now looking to expand our evaluation of immune biomarkers in Long COVID to better understand which patients may benefit from Tollovid alone, or potentially in combination with other products, so that we can add key objective data to the clinical data we are gathering for each patient. This may allow us to better understand underlying sub-clinical benefits that may exist that will eventually result in symptom improvement. This is critical for Long COVID patients to understand so that we can develop individualized regimens to give each patient that best opportunity for success and healing.”

About Todos Medical Ltd.
Todos is also developing blood tests for the early detection of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease. The Lymphocyte Proliferation Test (LymPro Test™) is a diagnostic blood test that determines the ability of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) and monocytes to withstand an exogenous mitogenic stimulation that induces them to enter the cell cycle. It is believed that certain diseases, most notably Alzheimer's disease, are the result of compromised cellular machinery that leads to aberrant cell cycle re-entry by neurons, which then leads to apoptosis. LymPro is unique in the use of peripheral blood lymphocytes as a surrogate for neuronal cell function, suggesting a common relationship between PBLs and neurons in the brain.
Todos formed the Israeli-based majority-owned joint venture 3CL Pharma, Ltd with NLC Pharma in March of 2022 to consolidate all of the intellectual property pursuing the development of diagnostic tests targeting the 3CL protease, as well as 3CL protease inhibitor botanical and pharmaceutical products that target a fundamental reproductive mechanism of coronaviruses. 3CL Pharma, through Todos’ brand, has commercialized the 3CL protease inhibitor immune support dietary supplement Tollovid® in the United States, is developing the dual mechanism 3CL protease inhibitor & anti-cytokine therapeutic drug candidate Tollovir®, while also developing the 3CL protease inhibitor diagnostic TolloTest™.
