“This positive progress in commencing a new prostate cancer clinical trial is just one more step in our focused plan for R&D success," said Hemispherx CEO Thomas K. Equels. “When our management team began three years ago, Hemispherx identified four significant steps we needed to take to make our company a success. First, raise the funds necessary to produce our drug candidate, Ampligen, for use in immuno-oncology clinical trials and other programs. Second, produce adequate supplies of Ampligen to conduct such trials. Third, initiate multiple immuno-oncology clinical trials. We have now accomplished each of these steps and are using Ampligen to treat cancers in clinical trials. Now is the time for us to seek out big pharma partners who share our excitement and enthusiasm for the potential of Ampligen. We believe that success in these trials will create the environment for that goal. Accomplishing success in R&D is based on such progress."
