      • The DSMB suggested progression to the second part of the study after receiving positive safety and effectiveness data from the first two cohorts of patients in the continuing EnACT study of MAT2203 (oral amphotericin B) for the cure of cryptococcal meningitis.
      • Dosing began in a Phase 1 study of MAT2501, a possible first oral aminoglycoside antibiotic (oral amikacin).
      • Kathryn Penkus Corzo, a seasoned biotechnology executive, has joined the Company’s Board of Directors.

      Jerome D. Jabbour, CEO of Matinas stated that,

      They’ve started an in vivo efficacy study with LNC remdesivir with their collaborators at the National Institutes of Health and Gilead, and they hope to share results later this year as another conceptual design for successful antiviral prodrug oral administration. Lastly, they continue to assess opportunities to capitalize on what they believe is their LNC platform’s immense potential for solving the oral administration and intracellular delivery issues posed by vaccines and complicated nucleic acid polymers like mRNA.
