EpiVax Tregitope Technology: a Paradigm Shift

Share Article

In any community of scientists, there are some who are bolder than most, who seek alternatives to existing paradigms because they perceive a path forward. Others will resist the alternative, which will be subject to scorn and scrutiny. In time, as the challenging paradigm is supported by additional evidence, it will replace the old paradigm, and a paradigm shift will have occurred. From: Thomas Kuhn, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1962).

EpiVax, a paradigm-shifting biotechnology company, takes the road this spring to share news about Tregitope – the small peptides contained in IgG that trigger regulatory T cells – and other cutting-edge science and technology with scientific colleagues. Starting in Asia, EpiVax will be presenting the Tregitope paradigm shift at 10 conferences between March and August 2010. A list of upcoming conferences is presented here below.
