About Ciclofilin:

Ciclofilin is a privately held life sciences company based in San Diego, California, with R&D facilities in Edmonton, Canada. The company's lead drug, CPI-431-32, is uniquely designed to specifically target the host and not the virus. By targeting the host, CPI-431-32 interferes with the necessary cellular components that allow the virus to infect cells, replicate, and to propagate. CPI-431-32 has more than one mode of action; inhibition of viral transport into cells with additional downstream effects on the virus life cycle. In addition to the anti-HBV effects of CPI-431-32, cyclophilin inhibitors, as a class, may also target liver disease (liver inflammation and fibrosis, liver cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma).
