    Article Mentioning Stellar

    Here is our mention from the article (we're a 'play'):

    TLSR: I'll bet you have a play on adjuvants.

    SD: A company that is currently under the radar in this area is Stellar Biotechnologies Inc. (KLH:TSX.V) which is the world leader in keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) production for use as an adjuvant and protein carrier. KLH is produced by Megathura crenulata (great keyhole limpet, a marine animal), and it is such a large and complex molecule that it cannot be synthesized. This represents a high barrier to competitive entry especially for production of cGMP (current good manufacturing practices)-grade KLH, for which Stellar is partnered with Sigma-Aldrich Corporation (SIAL:NASDAQ). Currently KLH is being used as either an adjuvant or protein carrier in over 30 active human clinical trials in various indications. It is important to note that KLH is considered so important to medical research that Stellar receives government funding to ensure that it can maintain a sustainable supply and even develop a KLH-based immunogenicity assay.
