Excess IL-6 is associated with inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis, MS, some cancers and neurodegenerative diseases.
Jackson Center, Pennsylvania--(Newsfile Corp. - October 12, 2022) - Halberd Corporation (OTC Pink: HALB) demonstrated the removal of Interleukin-6 (IL-6) from human blood serum during in-vitro laboratory studies. Excess Interleukin-6 in the blood has been linked to numerous adverse health conditions.
Unlike Halberd's earlier successful experiments, which eliminated IL-6 from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) through exposure to laser irradiation, this recent experiment used an engineered antibody with a strong binding affinity to IL-6 which was chemically bonded to a medical grade microbead filter.
According to William A. Hartman, Chairman, President & CEO of Halberd Corporation, "Our team's patent-pending fabricated microbeads were meticulously inserted into a laboratory chromatography column, forming a filter through which the blood serum with IL-6 was flowed. The chemically bonded antibody attracts and sequesters the IL-6 in the blood where it remains on the filter beads, thus removing IL6 from the blood serum, much like the way a magnet removes iron filings from a fluid."
Dr. Mitchell S. Felder, Halberd's Chief Technology Officer and board-certified attending neurologist, commented, "IL-6 stimulates auto-immune processes and inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, some cancers and atherosclerosis. In pancreatic cancer it was found that elevated levels of IL-6 in patients correlated with a poor prognosis. Therefore, the ability to eradicate IL-6 from blood may serve as a relatively simple and effective therapeutic against multiple maladies."
Hartman, added, "Halberd's scientists were able to adjust the parameters used in treating CSF to address the complexities of dealing with human blood serum. Halberd's patent-pending process has the capacity to fine tune the elimination of targeted bio factors."
Mr. Hartman continued, "We need to clarify a somewhat common, but inaccurate, notion concerning Halberd and its accomplishments. Some people have indicated that Halberd is "all over the place" with its multiple accomplishments across numerous disease states. Instead, we are a company with the platform product/process with virtually universal application, being able to eradicate, and even fine tune and control a multiplicity of disease-causing elements in bodily fluids. This has profound medical implications and advantages."
