MELISA Institute

MELISA Institute (Molecular Epidemiology for Life Science ReseArch) is a biotech focused mainly on maternal-fetal research, human reproduction and women's health.


Through our proteomics and genomics divisions, we develop and manufacture medical products with diagnostic or therapeutic applications. Our main product in development is Previfenon®️ (EGCG purified from Camelia sinensis, stabilized and complexed with zinc), a possible prenatal therapeutic agent that aims to improve neurological development after birth in people with trisomy 21 (Pride 21).


Due to the important immunomodulatory and antiviral effects that EGCG and zinc have been shown to have, we are currently investigating this compound as a broad-spectrum chemoprophylaxis method to prevent and control the impact of epidemics caused by emerging viruses, such as SARS-CoV-2 (HERD).
