      TNXP’s Publication

      On November 22, TNXP announced its paper publication on antiviral SARS-CoV-2 Inhibitor, TNX-3500, in JCI Insight. According to the paper, the TNX-3500 shows great potential against various variants of SARS-CoV-2 and even surpasses Remdesivir. SARS-CoV-2 is the cause of Covid-19, while Remdesivir is a broad spectrum anti-viral medication used against it. TNXP’s TNX-3500 is much more potent than Remdesivir as it suppresses viral replication in tissue culture with great efficacy. While after a combination test on both drugs showed additive effect against the virus instead of competitive effect.

Both the companies under collaboration with the National Institute of Health uncovered the recent findings. TNX-3500’s potency against SARS-CoV-2 is a huge step in achieving some kind of countermeasure against not only the current but future variants of the virus.

      Previously, TNX-3500 had also shown broad-spectrum antiviral effects against the Ebola virus, Lassa virus, and orthopoxviruses.
