WAKEFIELD, MA / ACCESSWIRE / June 28, 2022 / Innovation Pharmaceuticals (OTCQB:IPIX) ('the Company'), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, today announced new antiviral research on Brilacidin in vitro antiviral activity in bunyaviruses and alphaviruses has been accepted for a Poster Presentation at the 2022 Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS), taking place September 12-15, 2022, at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, Kissimmee, FL. Last year, Brilacidin antiviral findings were also accepted for presentation at the MHSRS, an annual four-day scientific symposium sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense.

The poster -- Brilacidin, a Host Defense Peptide Mimetic, is a Broad-Spectrum Countermeasure Strategy Against Acutely Infectious Viruses -- will be part of the Development of New Front Line Therapies to Prevent and Treat Endemic Viral Diseases (non-SARS-CoV-2) Breakout Session.

As released last week, Brilacidin has been researched by NIH/NIAID-sponsored and other academic collaborators as a novel broad-spectrum antiviral drug candidate. A review article is being prepared on Brilacidin based on this research and on results from the Company's Phase 2 clinical trial (NCT04784897) of intravenous Brilacidin in moderate-to-severe hospitalized cases of COVID-19.
