Siga Technologies (NASDAQ: SIGA) announced the FDA's approval of TPOXX, or tecovirimat. The drug consists of an antiviral treatment designed to diminish the effects of smallpox upon outbreak and is the first approved treatment of its kind. The smallpox drug's importance is twofold.
SIGA Technologies, Inc. (SIGA) (SIGA), a commercial-stage pharmaceutical company focused on the health security market, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved oral TPOXX® (tecovirimat) for the treatment of smallpox to mitigate the impact of a potential outbreak. TPOXX, a small-molecule antiviral treatment for smallpox, is the first therapy specifically approved for this indication.
SIGA Technologies Inc. (SIGA) rose 9.6% in Friday afternoon trade on the Food and Drug Administration's approval of its TPOXX, the first-ever smallpox therapy. The contagious and often-deadly disease -- described as "one of the world's most devastating diseases known to humanity" by the World Health Organization -- has been considered eradicated since 1980 due to global immunization, but there have been fears that it could be used for bioterrorism, the FDA said. To establish the product's safety, it was tested in 359 healthy humans who did not have smallpox, while the efficacy findings that the approval was based on were in animals.
