About VT-111

VT-111, an immune-modulating protein therapeutic, is the world's first viral-derived human therapeutic. It is a novel inhibitor of the monocyte/macrophage influx to sites of injury and has demonstrated potent efficacy in preclinical models of acute injury in which inflammation plays a key role. VT-111 recently completed a Phase IIa trial of 48 patients with Acute Coronary Syndromes receiving coronary stents. In addition to advancing the cardiovascular program with a partner, Viron is moving to conduct appropriate preclinical studies prior to a clinical program to evaluate the effects of VT-111 in solid organ transplantation.
