Ansun BioPharma Announces Potent in-vitro DAS181 Activity against Respiratory Syncytial Virus at 5th Congress of Virology
Date:12/8/2015

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ansun BioPharma announced preliminary data suggesting in-vitro activity of DAS181 against Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), a virus which causes significant morbidity and mortality in patients. The data was presented at the 5th Congress of Virology in Atlanta, Georgia in a keynote address by Ronald Moss, MD, CEO of Ansun. The in-vitro inhibition against the virus was observed to be more potent than Ribavarin, the current treatment for RSV. "This is very important data as RSV is a common respiratory pathogen and additional treatments are needed," noted Dr. Moss. "As DAS181 is currently in the clinic being studied for the treatment of other respiratory viruses, clinical trials are warranted to test the efficacy of this drug against RSV infection as well," commented Dr. Moss.
