JERUSALEM, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hadasit Bio-Holdings Ltd. (TASE: HDST, OTC: HADSY), a publicly traded portfolio of biotech companies, all based on intellectual property developed and owned by Hadassah University Hospital, Israel's foremost medical research center, announced today that two of its portfolio companies, ProtAb and Enlivex, have received approximately $700,000 in convertible loans from Hadasit Bio-Holdings and its partners.  ProtAb received $435,000 and Enlivex received approximately $268,000 (NIS 1 million).
