Atea Pharmaceuticals Announces First Patient Dosed in Phase 2 Virology Trial of AT-527 in Outpatient Setting
Excerpt from the Press Release:
BOSTON, Feb. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Atea Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: AVIR) (“Atea”), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, today announced that the first patient has been dosed in the Phase 2 virology trial evaluating AT-527 in mild or moderate COVID-19 patients in an outpatient setting. The trial will enroll patients in the United Kingdom (UK), Ireland and other countries. AT-527 is an orally administered, direct-acting developmental antiviral agent derived from Atea’s purine nucleotide prodrug platform.
“In collaboration with Roche, we are initiating a randomized virology study in the UK and Ireland, where COVID-19 is fast-spreading and an estimated 30-40% of new infections involve a new mutation. This study presents the opportunity to investigate the antiviral activity of AT-527 in these patients. Importantly, this study is evaluating patients in an outpatient setting, which is the anticipated patient population of the upcoming Phase 3 trial,” said Jean-Pierre Sommadossi, Ph.D., Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Atea Pharmaceuticals. “While vaccines will play an important role in controlling the COVID-19 pandemic, we need additional treatment options to stay ahead of the virus, and direct-acting antivirals have the potential to be an essential complement to vaccines.”
