Lakewood-Amedex Inc. to Develop Broad Spectrum Influenza Drug to Include H1N1 and H5N1 Type A Strains

sites on the viral mRNA from the viral replicative genes. When the nRNA comes into contact with its specific target, it hybridizes with the viral mRNA locking this mRNA up and preventing production of vital viral replicative proteins. Deprived of these, the virus is unable to multiply itself and rendered unable to spread and infect other cells.

Paul DiTullio, chief scientist for Lakewood-Amedex said, "We are essentially shutting the virus down in the infected person. By targeting the highly conserved replicative genes we have a product that should be useable for years even if the virus mutates. We are also hitting several genetic sites and the chances of them all mutating in the same season is minimal. Even if the H1N1 strain does undergo recombination with the deadly H5N1 strain our product will still shut it down." DiTullio added, "That is the limitation with vaccines. They stimulate antibody production in the host against the surface antigens of the virus but unfortunately it is the surface antigens that mutate most of the time requiring a new vaccine to be developed. Our product works independently of surface antigen mutation."

Mr. Parkinson commented, "The Company intends to complete its pre-clinical data package and enter human clinical trials as quickly as possible. We are talking to government agencies and potential partners and hope soon to have a universal anti-influenza product as an alternative to seasonal vaccines."
