Jackson Center, PA, September 17, 2020 – Halberd Corporation (OTC PINK: “HALB“) today outlined the specifics of the second stage goals of the $1.4 Million seven-phase research project with Arizona State University.

The second stage of the research involves an investigation of a method using dialysis, or a variant of dialysis, to remove the fluorescent antibody-antigen complex, for the rapid identification of a Covid-19 sample.

In an earlier press release, we enumerated the initial phase creation of a unique Covid-19 fluorescent antibody which may also contain an albumin moiety to facilitate the rapid identification of the Covid-19 target antigens.  The use of fluorescent antibody-antigen complex targets antigens for removal through our proprietary extracorporeal dialysis mechanism.

Work on the initial phase of the program is underway at ASU, with initial results expected within the next month. ASU has already identified some very promising initial findings.  Our technical team is following progress very closely. Dr. Patricio Reyes, Halberd’s Chief Technical Officer and Head of Neurology at the Phoenix VA, feels that these initial results may have more profound consequences and potential benefits than originally anticipated.  During a recent research coordination meeting, Dr. Reyes and Dr. Qiang Chen agreed that the use of convalescent serum could be invaluable in both the diagnosis and treatment of Covid-19.

William A. Hartman, Halberd Corporation Chairman, President & CEO, stated, “Dialysis is just one of the removal methods being investigated by Halberd/ASU.  Covid-19 is a very complex target antigen, and we are examining several methods of removal which we believe will result in an optimum treatment or combination of treatments designed to eradicate COVID-19 and other viral infections.  Other methods of our antibody-antigen removal techniques will be more fully explained in subsequent communications.”

Investor caution/added risk for investors in companies claiming involvement in COVID-19 initiatives –

On April 8, 2020, SEC Chairman Jay Clayton and William Hinman, the Director of the Division of Corporation Finance, issued a joint public statement on the importance of disclosure during the COVID-19 crisis.

The SEC and Self-Regulatory Organizations are targeting public companies that claim to have products, treatment or other strategies with regard to COVID-19.

The ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s operations is unknown and will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted with confidence, including the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, new information may emerge concerning the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, and any additional preventative and protective actions that governments, or the Company, may direct, which may result in an extended period of continued business disruption, reduced customer traffic and reduced operations. Any resulting financial impact cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.

We further caution investors that our primary focus and goal is to battle this pandemic for the good of the world. As such, it is possible that we may find it necessary to make disclosures which are consistent with that goal, but which may be adverse to the pecuniary interests of the Company and of its shareholders.
