Nanoviricides Represent Dawn of a New Era in Antiviral Therapy, Says Company
NanoViricides, Inc. Presents at the Global Pharma R&D Summit
WEST HAVEN, CT | Posted on October 23rd, 2007
NanoViricides, Inc. (OTC BB: NNVC) (the "Company"), presented additional preclinical data at the 4th Annual Global Pharma R&D Summit in Boston on October 22nd ( http://www.globalpharmasummit.com/programme.asp ).
Dr. Anil R. Diwan, Company President, presented the current results of nanoviricides drug development work against multiple viruses. Significant reduction in lung viral load in influenza H1N1 animal study was described among the new datasets. The one log viral load reduction was especially significant because the treatment was given as a tail vein injection, said Dr. Diwan. The reduction in viral load was corroborated with additional biological tests as well. He also presented the data which indicate that FluCide™-I and FluCide-HP™ may be as much as 10 times (1,000%) to 16 times (1,600%) superior to current treatment standard, oseltamivir (active ingredient of Tamiflu®, Roche) against common influenza, and even better against bird flu (H5N1).
"The era of classical antiviral therapies is coming to an end, with the introduction of highly efficacious nanoviricide drug candidates," he declared. "Influenza virus cannot escape FluCide-I through mutations, reassortments or recombinations, because of the particular ligand we have chosen, based on sialic acid," he reiterated in front of the scientific audience in response to a question.
The Global Pharma R&D Summit brings together decision makers from a number of big and mid-size pharmaceutical companies, as well as new technology companies, and features invited presentations.
