About VX-787VX-787 is an investigational medicine being developed by Vertex that is designed to directly inhibit replication of influenza A, including recent H1 (pandemic) and H5 (avian) influenza strains, based on in-vitro data. VX-787's mechanism represents a new class of potential medicines for the treatment of influenza, distinct from neuraminidase inhibitors, the current standard of care for the treatment of influenza. VX-787 is intended to provide a rapid onset of action and an expanded treatment window. VX-787, which was discovered by Vertex scientists, underscores the Company’s expertise in antiviral drug development, beginning with early research in HIV and more recently in hepatitis C. Vertex has worldwide rights to develop and commercialize VX-787.
