Let’s see what are the recent news about NNVC?
NNVC Nanomachines concept
A few viruses NNVC is working toward attacking include Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), shingles, and influenza. To stop these and other viruses from infecting and duplicating in humans, NanoViricides, Inc. developed what they call a nanoviricide. It is designed to block the virus from spreading within the body, thus eliminating the infection.
The idea is that the drug NanoViricides, Inc. developed would contain a nanoviricide (or nanomachine) that attracts the targeted virus. The nanomachine then attacks, traps and destroys the virus before it can replicate and invade the body further.
If this technology works as expected, it will change how the medical community approaches every virus on the planet, including the coronavirus and future viruses not yet discovered.
Positive results of NNVC two COVID-19 clinical drug candidates
The Company is preparing a pre-IND application encompassing its two clinical drug candidates for the treatment of COVID-19 infected patients. Of these, NV-CoV-2 is the Company’s broad-spectrum anti-coronavirus drug candidate based on its nanoviricides® platform that is expected to be capable of attacking most, if not all, SARS-CoV-2 variants and other coronaviruses. In addition, the Company is also developing NV-CoV-2-R that combines (1) the power of NV-CoV-2 to attack and potentially dismantle the virus particles outside cells, and (2) the power of remdesivir to block further production of virus particles inside cells. Blocking the complete lifecycle of the virus in this manner could provide a cure for the viral disease.
