Intercell and Romark Join Forces in Combining Therapies Against Hepatitis C
Date:10/21/2010

and ribavirin.(7,8) Romark is preparing to initiate Phase III clinical trials of nitazoxanide plus peginterferon for treatment of CHC.

About Hepatitis CHCV is a major cause of chronic liver disease, including cirrhosis and liver cancer. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 170 million people worldwide are chronic HCV carriers (3% of the world's population), including about 10 million Europeans, 3.9 million Americans and 2 million Japanese. 35,000 new infections occur in the United States alone each year. The substantial unmet medical need is underscored by the fact that each year 8,000 to 10,000 deaths and 1,000 liver transplants in the United States are due to HCV.

Currently, there is no vaccine against HCV available, and the infection can only be treated with a combination of interferon and ribavirin – a long-term therapy with limited efficacy and substantial side effects. It also gives rise to high treatment costs for patients. In 2002, worldwide sales of HCV drugs totaled around EUR 2.8bn, and demand has since grown significantly. The market has been seen to expand to about EUR 3.5bn by 2006.

About Romark LaboratoriesRomark Laboratories, L.C. (www.romark.com) is a privately owned biopharmaceutical company committed to the discovery and development of innovative new small molecules for treating infectious diseases and cancers.

The Company is developing a new class of broad-spectrum antiviral drugs called the thiazolides. The first thiazolide, nitazoxanide, is in late-stage clinical development as a treatment of chronic hepatitis C and influenza. Other new thiazolides are expected to enter clinical development in 2011.

Romark markets Alinia® (nitazoxanide) tablets, 500 mg and Alinia® (nitazoxanide) for Oral Suspension, 100 mg/5 mL in the United States.
