Phase II Study Shows that Nitazoxanide Significantly Improves Response to Standard of Care in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis C
Date:11/2/2007

w class of small molecule drugs called thiazolides that inhibit replication of a broad range of viruses. The drug was discovered by Dr. Rossignol and was initially developed by Romark and approved for marketing in the United States as the first treatment of cryptosporidiosis. Serendipitously, the development of nitazoxanide for treating cryptosporidiosis led to the discovery of its antiviral properties and ultimately to the discovery of a promising new class of antiviral drugs.

Romark is currently conducting a U.S. Phase II trial with nitazoxanide plus standard of care in patients with hepatitis C genotype 1 who were previously treated with interferon. The Company also plans to initiate a Phase II trial in treatment naive patients early in 2008.
