Houston, TX (May 2020) – Pulmotect, Inc., a clinical-stage biotechnology company, has received approval from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to initiate two COVID-19 Phase-2 clinical trials of its innate immune-stimulating drug PUL-042. The Company plans to start accrual within the next week at up to twenty U.S. sites. The trials are for the prevention of infection with SARS-CoV-2 and the prevention of disease progression in patients with early COVID-19 disease. Funding for the trials came from the final closing of the Company’s offering of Series B Preferred stock in March.

London – On Tuesday, (12th May) CTS Virtual (https://arena-international.com/ctsvirtual/), will host new key sessions on Clinical Trial Supply 2020 Trends, Stem-gene Clinical Trials and many more.
As modern medicine advances, the global clinical supply chain needs to keep up, and the expanding market for stem-cell and gene therapy is making this increasingly complex for companies doing research and development in these areas. The therapeutic potential for stem-cell and gene products is vast, with targeted personalized medicine to suit the individual needs of sick patients, but running clinical supply operations in these fields can come at a high cost and requires detailed planning.
The newly organized research project “MELLODDY” (Machine Learning Ledger Orchestration for Drug Discovery), involving ten large pharma companies and seven technology providers, is that kind of deals which can catalyze a transition of the pharmaceutical industry to a new level -- a “paradigm shift”, as one might refer to it in terms of Thomas Kuhn’s “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions”.
The project aims at developing a state-of-the-art platform for collaboration, based on Owkin’s blockchain architecture technology, which would allow collective training of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms using data from multiple direct pharmaceutical competitors, without exposing their internal know-hows and compromising their intellectual property -- for the collective benefit of everyone involved.
