ImQuest Receives $6.4 M Five Year Award from NIH to Develop Long-Lasting Combination Topical Microbicides To Prevent HIV Transmission
Date:8/6/2008

products and the proposed combination microbicide will provide a three layer barrier to HIV infection. Initially, the product will inactivate HIV and HIV-infected cells in the semen upon introduction to the vagina. Secondly, two separate products in the combination will prevent the initial attachment and subsequent entry of virus into the vaginal target cells, preventing infection. Finally, the third and most potent activity of the product will prevent the critical action of the virus-encoded reverse transcriptase inside the cell. Key features of the development program include the formulation of the product for delivery as gels or intravaginal rings, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic evaluations to demonstrate the feasibility of the formulated product for use, acceptability studies to assure that the final product will be used by the women it is intended to protect, and the IND-directed preclinical and clinical activities required to initiate FDA-approved human clinical trials for the unique final product.

ImQuest CEO, Joseph McGuirl states, "We are highly honored that the NIH has seen fit to fund this important microbicide development program and we look forward to working closely with our team of academic collaborators and the NIH to successfully achieve our goals."

ImQuest Life Sciences, a privately held U.S. company located in Frederick, Maryland specializes in early stage drug development of novel compounds for the treatment of infectious disease and cancer. ImQuest BioSciences, also located in Frederick, Maryland, is a leading provider of anti-infective therapeutic and microbicide development services to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry.
