ViroStatics has successfully concluded the Project “Thunder” under Horizon 2020 dedicated SME Instrument
“Thunder” project represents a feasibility study about the development of the innovative CDK inhibitor VS2-370 with a dual pronged applicability: treats certain HIV-associated cancers while simultaneously purging the HIV reservoirs which continue to threaten individuals suffering from AIDS. This dual pronged approach provides a clear pathway for regulatory approval which is not available to those drugs under development which are HIV specific. We achieved proof of concept demonstrating activity of the drug in vitro and in vivo in a relevant model of HIV-associated tumors (i.e Non-Hodgkin Primary Effusion Lymphoma, PEL).
During the project we have completed the documentation on VS2-370 intended for Pharmas and reached out to 34 likely potential future oncology-oriented partners with the primary goal to educate them ahead of a formal process after further pre-clinical studies. We have received positive feedbacks and agreed to proceed with the development of the product by completing the studies necessary for the Investigational Medicinal Product Dossier to allow the Pharma partner to run the first-in-man clinical trial.
Startup Olé includes a Startup Fair, a Pitching Competition and Curated Matchmaking with relevant corporates and investors and private networking. SMEs will have the opportunity to present their business, pitch to investors, attend workshops, network and much more.
