Navigo and Mannin Ink Deal to Develop COVID-19 Treatment
German biotech Navigo Proteins is teaming up with the German subsidiary of Ontario, Canada-based Mannin Research to develop Mannin’s investigational recombinant protein as a treatment for patients with COVID-19.

Navigo will be providing Mannin with its technology for purification of proteins for use in manufacturing the potential final drug product.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
