SHELTON, Conn., Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoViricides, Inc. (NYSE MKT: NNVC) (the "Company"), reports that its President Dr. Anil Diwan was recently invited to participate in certain pharmaceutical industry meetings to comment on regulatory aspects of nanomedicines.
On September 21, 2016, Dr. Anil Diwan, President and Chairman of the Company, was invited as panel participant to discuss "Regulatory Landscape: What's Needed to Drive Innovation" in the "Anti-Infectives-Rx 2016" Conference organized by Boston Biotech Conferences and held at the Harvard Medical School - Joseph B. Martin Conference Center, Boston, MA. On September, 19, 2016, Dr. Diwan was invited to present two talks at the "Public Health and Emerging Microbial Threats, 14th Annual International Conference" (PHEMT), held at the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Albany, NY 12208, USA. Dr. Diwan presented a talk entitled "Beyond Antibodies: Chemical Nanomachines to Combat Emerging Virus Threats" about the Nanoviricides technology and accomplishments in the first session at PHEMT. Additionally, Dr. Diwan was invited to and presented a talk on "Nanomedicine Drug Development Regulatory Processes: Critical Issues" in the second session at PHEMT. He discussed that fundamentally nanomedicines were no different in terms of regulatory requirements, namely, safety, efficacy, and product quality. He further illuminated that, in contrast to small chemicals, the complex nature of nanomedicines requires significantly extensive work to develop manufacturing processes and characterization methods to meet the criterion of being able to produce a nanomedicine that will be equivalent from batch to batch. He also discussed how the scientists, mainly chemists and engineers, need to harness knowledge from various disciplines in order to build quality into nanomedicines manufacture.
