Hemispherx Presents New Data On Protection From Pulmonary Damage Associated With Infection By Highly Pathogenic Influenza Virus

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hemispherx Biopharma (NYSE MKT:HEB), today announced that Dr. William M. Mitchell of Vanderbilt University will present a research paper on January 21, 2014 at the Keystone Symposia Conference on Pathogenesis of Respiratory Viruses entitled " Protection from Pulmonary Tissue Damage Associated with Infection of Cynomolgus Macaques by Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Virus (H5N1) by Low Dose Natural Human IFN-α Administered to the Buccal Mucosa." This presentation is a collaborative project conducted at Viroclinics, Rotterdam, an internationally recognized research entity for the study of both seasonal and pandemic influenza viruses. The facilities are directed by Prof. Albert D.M.E. Osterhaus, an internationally known virologist specializing in the study of pandemic influenza. 

The global threat of an influenza pandemic emerging from avian H5N1 and H7N9 influenza viruses that are highly pathogenic for humans has mobilized a variety of efforts to mitigate the potential devastating human and economic consequences. A key element in governmental responses has been neuraminidase inhibitor stockpiling for therapeutic or prophylactic uses although the development of viral resistance without loss of viability is a constant threat to their human employment.  

Using an established primate model for H5N1 infection, the collaborative team has evaluated the potential for the prophylactic mitigation of the pulmonary damage characteristic of fatal cases from primary influenza virus pneumonia using a low dose oral (LDO) formulation of a commercially available parenteral natural human interferon alpha (Alferon N Injection®).
