Poly-ICR -- Proprietary Toll-like Receptor 3 Agonist
The company's proprietary Toll-like Receptor 3 agonist, Poly-IC: Poly-Arginine (Poly-ICR), may have use as a broad immune stimulatory agent, as well as a vaccine adjuvant for both therapeutic and prophylactic vaccines. Nventa is currently advancing Poly-ICR as a means for revenue generation through partnering, as well as for its own internal development.
-- Partnering Poly-ICR -- Nventa is currently providing Poly-ICR through Material Transfer Agreements to leading vaccine developers in the U.S. and abroad who are evaluating Poly-ICR for potential incorporation into a wide range of vaccine products. Based on early interest in Poly-ICR, the company anticipates that it may provide Nventa with a near-term revenue opportunity.
-- Internal Application of Poly-ICR -- Nventa is pursuing the development of Poly-ICR for topical application for the treatment of genital warts (GW) and actinic keratosis, a premalignant condition of the skin. Next development activities include completing toxicology and formulation activities for Poly-ICR and filing an investigational new drug (IND) application for the compound. Partnering or adequate financing are required for this work to be continued.
