Rhinovirus Infection Therapeutics - Pipeline Overview
Rhinovirus infections, caused by the rhinoviruses, occurs in the upper or lower respiratory tracts. These infections are mostly acknowledged as ‘common cold’; however, they can also lead to pneumonia, sore throats, sinus infections, ear infections, and bronchiolitis. The symptoms manifest after the incubation period of viruses (12-24 hours) and last till 7-11 days. The signs and symptoms of the infection include nasal irritation or dryness; headache; less sense of smell and taste; hoarseness; cough; fever; restlessness or irritability; facial and ear pressure; nasal congestion, sneezing, and nasal discharge; sore throat; and posttussive vomiting.
A number of drug candidates in the rhinovirus infection therapeutics pipeline are being developed using proprietary technologies of the companies, which enable targeted and specific delivery of drugs. For instance, Immune Dampening and Refocusing Technology developed by Biological Mimetics Inc., demonstrated a high potential in designing vaccines by minimizing limitations in the vaccine’s development.
In addition, positive clinical trial results and strategic decisions of the company to collaborate with other companies and education institutions are also facilitating drug development in the pipeline. Furthermore, the issuance of patents helps in achieving different milestones in the form of grants and designations from the regulatory bodies and institutes including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) among others.
