About NanoViricides, Inc.
NanoViricides, Inc. (www.nanoviricides.com) is a development stage company that is creating special purpose nanomaterials for antiviral therapy. Our lead drug candidate is NV-HHV-101 with its first indication as dermal topical cream for the treatment of shingles rash. The Company is also developing drugs against SARS-CoV-2 virus for the treatment of COVID-19 disease, and a number of other viral diseases including oral and genital Herpes, viral diseases of the eye including EKC and herpes keratitis, H1N1 swine flu, H5N1 bird flu, seasonal Influenza, HIV, Hepatitis C, Rabies, Dengue fever, and Ebola virus, among others. The Company’s novel nanoviricide® class of drug candidates are designed to specifically attack virus particles by mimicking the same receptor sites that viruses use to bind to cells, enveloping and then dismantling them, thereby blocking the reinfection cycle. This goes beyond what antibodies and immunotherapeutics can do. Our unique biomimetic approach enables creation of drugs that a virus would be highly unlikely to escape due to mutations. The Company’s technology is based on broad, exclusive, sub-licensable, field licenses from TheraCour Pharma, Inc. While the Company does not currently have a license to the coronavirus field, TheraCour has not denied any licenses to the Company. The Company typically begins the licensing process only after demonstrating effectiveness of some candidates in optimization stage.
