Siga monkeypox therapy undergoes NIH-led late-stage trial

On Friday, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced the start of a late-stage clinical trial to test Siga Technologies’ (NASDAQ:SIGA) Tpoxx antiviral pill on monkeypox patients. Tpoxx, approved in the U.S. for related smallpox infection, is also used to treat monkeypox on a case-by-case basis under the FDA's Expanded Access program. The NIH-led trial is expected to enroll 500 patients, both adults and children, who will be randomized to receive Tpoxx, also known as Tecovirimat, and the placebo. The study is designed to measure if Tpoxx recipients heal faster than those who receive the placebo and obtain critical data on optimal dosing and safety for children and pregnant women. Recently, a team of British scientists, who conducted one of the major clinical trials to find COVID-19 therapies, started a similar trial for Tpoxx in the U.K.

Scientists behind key COVID study run monkeypox trial for SIGA therapy

A team of British scientists, who conducted one of the major trials to find COVID-19 therapies, announced a new clinical study on Tuesday to evaluate whether the antiviral tecovirimat developed by SIGA Technologies (NASDAQ:SIGA) is effective against monkeypox. The scientists from Oxford University rose to fame in 2020 after initiating their so-called RECOVERY trial, which initially tested four treatments against COVID-19. Tecovirimat, also known as TPOXX, is currently available in the U.S. as a treatment for smallpox on a case-by-case basis under the FDA's Expanded Access program. The monkeypox trial named PLATINUM is funded by a ~$4.4M grant from the U.K. government. The randomized trial will enroll at least 500 participants who will receive a 14-day course of 600mg tecovirimat twice daily or a matched placebo. Previously, updating on its plans to launch global studies for TPOXX in monkeypox, SIGA (SIGA) said that the first trial sites in the U.K. would be activated this week.
