WAKEFIELD, Mass., Jan. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Innovation Pharmaceuticals (OTCQB:IPIX) (“the Company”), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, is pleased to announce that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has designated as a Fast Track development program the investigation of Brilacidin as a potential treatment for COVID-19. Brilacidin is a first-in-class Host Defense Protein (HDP) mimetic with antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.

Fast Track designation facilitates the development and expedites the review of drugs that are intended to treat serious and life-threatening conditions and show the potential to fill an unmet medical need. Drugs developed under the Fast Track program are afforded increased access to FDA staff and may qualify for other programs to further expedite their clinical development, such as priority review and accelerated approval.

“Receiving Fast Track designation is an important acknowledgment of the results of our COVID-19 laboratory research,” commented Leo Ehrlich, Chief Executive Officer at Innovation Pharmaceuticals. “Fast Track designation is well-timed, as we anticipate starting our Phase 2 clinical trial in hospitalized COVID-19 patients this month, and should help bring Brilacidin to patients faster in these dire times.”
