CHARLESTON, S.C., May 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — EverGlade Consulting (“EverGlade”), a national consulting firm, has helped Appili Therapeutics USA Inc. (“Appili”), a biopharmaceutical company focused on drug development for infectious diseases and biodefense, secure an initial contract with the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA). USAFA is the prime contractor to DTRA for this program. 

The initial funding, in the amount of US$7.3 million, will be used to kick-off ATI-1701 early-stage development and regulatory activities.  ATI-1701, is the Appili’s potential vaccine candidate for the prevention of infection with Francisella tularensis, the causative agent of tularemia and a top-priority biothreat. Francisella tularensis has been classified as a Category A pathogen by the U.S. National Institutes of Health due to its high rates of infectiousness and ability to cause lethal pneumonia and systemic infection. As the transmission of Francisella tularensis in the aerosolized form is more infectious than anthrax, it is a high bioterrorism threat.

“I am excited that our team was able to contribute to this vital DTRA effort,” said EverGlade Founder Eric Jia-Sobota. “This award addresses a critical need for a threat that is often overlooked.”
