Advanced Viral Research Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: ADVR), established in the mid-1980s, and headquartered in Yonkers, New York, is a biopharmaceutical firm dedicated to improving patients' lives by researching, developing, and bringing to market new and effective therapies for many serious diseases and disorders. With the commitment of expert leadership and skilled research scientists, ADVR is aggressively working to bring its flagship product, AVR118, to patients. A real blockbuster potential exists for this new type of biopolymer chemistry, which possesses novel immunomodulator activity. This peptide-nucleic acid complex, which to date has demonstrated a very favorable safety profile, appears to stimulate the pro-inflammatory response required to combat viral infections, such as HIV; and to dampen aberrant autoimmune-type inflammatory responses, which often occur in diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. In December 2004 ADVR announced an IND approval for AVR118 by the United States Food and Drug Administration. This allows the company to conduct a Phase II clinical trial in the United States. The study will examine the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of AVR118 in patients with advanced cancer who are suffering from symptoms of progressive disease. In addition, in January 2005 the company announced the final results of its Phase I/II clinical trial of AVR118 in patients with AIDS, which was conducted in Israel at the Kaplan Medical Center. The study results showed that AVR118 continues to demonstrate evidence of unique patient benefits, a favorable safety profile, and no apparent drug-related adverse events. Advanced Viral Research Corp. has about 17,000 square feet of office, laboratory and pilot manufacturing space at its headquarters. In addition to 12 patents, ADVR currently has applications for well over 20 additional patents related to AVR118, and continues to submit applications for additional patents.
