60° Pharmaceuticals Pipeline of Tropical Disease Medicines
60° Pharmaceuticals (60P)—a growth-oriented specialty pharmaceutical company—is putting cutting-edge biological science and applied research to use in furthering therapies for the prevention and treatment of tropical diseases. Currently, 60P’s pipeline covers promising clinical development programs for malaria and dengue fever.
By leveraging its successful completion of various clinical trials and exclusive research and licensing agreements with the U.S. Army, 60P seeks partnership arrangements for further advancement and commercialization of its clinical pipeline. Key partnership agreements could support the potential development of new medicines in this important market segment.
Innovation and product development
To innovate new tropical disease treatments, 60P collaborates with other public and private entities to proceed collectively.
60P’s promising dengue fever treatments
60P has two repositioned drugs that have proven safe in human populations for the treatment of dengue fever. 60P has developed a Phase II clinical development campaign for these two candidates:
- Modipafant: A platelet-activating factor receptor antagonist (60P002)
- Celgosivir: An alpha-glucosidase I inhibitor (60P001)
Urgent need for new malaria prevention treatments
In the current travel medicine market, existing drugs are only partially adequate. They simply do not protect against all species of the parasite in all parts of the world. Busy travelers are required to adhere to daily dosing or complicated schedules for post-exposure prophylaxis.
60P’s preventive [preferred] treatment regimens for malaria prevention are planned to be straightforward, thereby enabling travelers to be more compliant (before, during, and after travel). They also will not be affected by geographical restrictions due to regional drug resistance.
