About Unither Virology

Unither Virology, LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Therapeutics Corporation. The company is the preclinical stage of developing a broad-spectrum antiviral drug to treat multiple viruses, such as dengue and influenza. Drug candidates have been shown to protect animals against multiple viruses, and the company is commencing a program to move toward potential clinical trials.

The company's glycobiology antiviral agents are being developed under a research agreement with the Oxford Glycobiology Institute. The antiviral agents consist of iminosugar molecules, which enter host cells and inhibit the chemical pathways that viruses use to fold their proteins. Because the iminosugars affect the host cell, rather than attacking the virus directly, they reduce the chance for drug-resistant virus strains to emerge. In laboratory tests, the iminosugar molecules have shown activity against several families of viruses. Unither Virology is conducting ongoing in vivo tests.
