MARKHAM, ON, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - AlphaRx Inc. (OTC BB: ALRX). Speaking at the 11th Annual Rodman Renshaw Healthcare Conference in New York City, AlphaRx Director Dr. David Milroy presented a company overview focusing on the Company's product pipeline, nano drug delivery platform and the significant developments anticipated within the next 12 months. In Summary, AlphaRx will have 3-4 products in different stages of clinical development by the end of 2010, which have major market indications and opportunities, producing a portfolio of short to long term drug candidates to position the company for stable and sustainable growth. In addition, AlphaRx presented 2 new product candidates ARX1088 and ARX2038 which are being developed for herpes and lipid management respectively.

About ARX1088

The active ingredient in ARX1088 is an orally active interferon inducer. It primarily acts as an inducer of type I, alpha or beta interferon. In humans, these interferon levels double as early as four hours after administration of the drug. After 12-24 hours the levels can be one hundred or even several thousand fold higher, with maximum level achieved at 48 hours. It is a drug that is currently approved to treat certain anti-viral indications outside USA. ARX1088 is being developed as a topical treatment for herpes Simplex 1 and 2, as the mechanism of action is not directed at killing the virus, but through boosting the host's own immune system.
