Bioxytran Announces FDA Clearance of its IND Application for ProLectin-M in Clinical Trials

  • First Antiviral Drug in Glycovirology

Excerpt from the Press Release:

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, Aug. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BIOXYTRAN, INC. (BIXT), (the “Company”), a clinical stage biotechnology company developing oral drugs to treat COVID-19 and other viral diseases, announced that it has received clearance of its Investigational New Drug (IND) application from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to initiate clinical trials of ProLectin-M for the treatment of mild to moderate COVID-19 in standard risk patients.

“This clearance of ProLectin-M into the clinic is very important given that this is the first of a number of indications that we intend to pursue to treat large unmet medical needs with our glycovirology technology,” said Dr Leslie Ajayi, Bioxytran Chief Medical Officer. “This is an important milestone for our Company, as it represents our first program to receive FDA clearance to enter the clinic and paves the way for us to pursue other viral indications. This class of galectin inhibitors is groundbreaking because peer reviewed clinical trial results suggest a large number of patients can become PCR negative in as little as 3 days. The drug was designed by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy technology to neutralize viruses. Even though we are seeing a resurgence of COVID-19 and its newest variants, BA.2.86 and EG.5, we view our COVID-19 trials as case studies designed to showcase the potential of the galectin antagonist as a broad-spectrum antiviral drug.”
