The Danish Medicines Agency has given its recommendation for further development
of the SoftOx inhalation solution for the treatment of respiratory infections,
The SoftOx Inhalation Project aims to develop an inhalation solution for the
treatment of respiratory infections. This has the potential to be a breakthrough
in the treatment of respiratory infections including Covid-19 infections.
Following a scientific advisory meeting with the Danish Medicines Agency, a
favorable development path has been suggested to be able to start testing in
humans as soon as possible.
- It is now expected that the first studies in humans can start as early as the
second quarter of 2021. SoftOx will therefore immediately start preparations to
provide the necessary documentation that involves further safety studies in
animal models, says Geir Almås, CEO of SoftOx Solutions.
- The need for new solutions treating respiratory tract infections is
significant, this is a market which with conservative estimates for the EU and
the US is approximately 12 billion USD. The number can probably be doubled
looking in a global perspective, continue Almås.
This technology is unique, it is simple, exceptionally effective and does not
trigger resistance. The effect is also independent of possible new mutated
variants, as recently reported for the Corona virus.
- My team and I believe that we are facing a breakthrough in the treatment of
difficult infections, both viral and bacterial. We have tested SoftOx solutions
in the respiratory tract and we see that this can be an important treatment
principle that can help fight the ongoing pandemic and future epidemics and
pandemics ", says Professor of Microbiology and trial leader Thomas Bjarnsholt
at the University of Copenhagen.
