Starpharma Holdings Limitedís VivaGel on the Fast Track to the Market

Abstract:
Starpharma Holdings Limited (ASX: SPL) makes and develops its products using nanotechnology. Its main drug is called VivaGel, a gel-based microbicide designed to protect women from sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV.

The gel has made it through Phase 1 clinical trials, and the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has even granted the drug fast-track status ó and fast-track designation is nothing to scoff at. The term was coined in the FDA Modernization Act of 1997 in an effort to speed up the approval process for some worthy causes. The designation is reserved for new drugs that could address unmet medical needs and treat serious or life-threatening conditions.
