Hemispherx Announces Collaborations to Develop New Ebola Virus Disease Drugs
Oct 1 14
Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. has announced new research collaborations designed to develop therapeutic cocktails against Ebola which may overcome the emergence of drug resistance due to Ebola virus mutation. The rapid acquisition of Ebola virus (EBOV) sequence variation has been recently demonstrated during genomic surveillance of the current Ebola virus disease (EVD). This observed genomic sequence variation suggests drugs that target specific viral non-variant protein sequences are at risk of mutation mediated activity failure. This complicates significantly the development of EBOV inhibitors in the drug development pipeline, some of which have been highly effective in treating advanced EVD in non-human primates. The five integrated Ebola-based collaborations are with, National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), a branch of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the US Army Research Institute in Infectious Disease (USAMRIID), the Swiss Department of Defense (Spiez Lab), research being conducted at Howard University, Washington, DC, and, a US based facility with biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) capabilities with whom a Sponsor Research Agreement is currently being negotiated.
