GenoMed to Offer Nationwide Influenza Trial
submited by kickingbird at Oct, 8, 2004 9:8 AM from GenoMed
GenoMed has applied for patent protection on the use of a class of blood pressure medications in viral diseases, such as the flu. This is a totally novel approach. There is no shortage of these medications worldwide.
The Company has had 100% success in treating a small number of normal, immunocompetent patients suffering from West Nile virus encephalitis during the past two summers, including the elderly. GenoMed´s first case series of eight patients was published in July, 2004 in Current Topics in Medicinal Chemistry, a peer-reviewed medical journal.
Both the White House Office of Science Technology & Policy and the Department of Homeland Security have expressed interest in GenoMed´s potential broad-spectrum viral antidote. GenoMed will be meeting during October with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to discuss further testing of its approach against viral diseases, including influenza.
GenoMed is leading the clinical revolution which medical genomics has already made possible. GenoMed is currently marketing its protocol for preventing kidney failure due to high blood pressure and diabetes, and delaying emphysema. GenoMed´s influenza trial will be Internet-based, like its current West Nile virus trial.
