Dr. Jiahai Lu, from the School of Public Health, Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China, has published extensively in the field of avian influenza, and has been researching the breakthrough compound StatC(TM) for the past two years on behalf of Canopus Biopharma (OTCPK:CBIA), a US corporation who discovered and patented the potential of this antiviral candidate.

"The global distribution of the highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza has caused the World Health Organization to show its profound concern regarding the possibility of the virus spreading from human to human in the future," stated Dr. Lu. "Furthermore, the development of resistance to two approved anti-influenza drugs, oseltamivir (Tamiflu(R)) and zanamivir (Relenza(R)), as well as the lack of adequate vaccines has increased the need of developing new antiviral drugs."

"Consequently, I am delighted to be involved in the preclinical research stage of this innovative antiviral candidate, and look forward to continuing our successful collaboration with Canopus Biopharma in this area."

Dr. Lu and his colleagues have conducted extensive animal studies with StatC(TM) against three influenza strains, H5N1 (avian influenza, bird flu), H1N1 (Spanish influenza) and H3N2 (Hong Kong influe
