The Company has recently announced that it is now arranging to have cGMP manufacturing capabilities in place for the future FDA filings. The Company has recently announced that its optimized FluCide™ drug candidates have shown dramatically high efficacies in animal models in all parameters tested. Three of the FluCide drug candidates demonstrated a lung viral load reduction of greater than 1,000-fold, in the same stringent lethal mouse model study where oseltamivir (Tamiflu®) exhibited less than 2-fold lung viral load reduction. The Company’s other programs, including HIVCide™, DengueCide™, HerpeCide™ skin cream, and an antiviral eye drops program are also progressing satisfactorily.
