A virus that can lead to cancer
The World Health Organization estimates that more than
180 million people are infected
with the HCV virus.
The World Health Organization estimates that more than 180 million people are infected
with the hepatitis C virus (HCV), and it is estimated that there are three to four
million new cases each year. It is expected to grow to US$10.5 billion by 2014.
Immtech is encouraged by the potential of its compounds in treating HCV. Our
pre-clinical research activities have identified a class of compounds that cures
bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV); recently published findings show that these
compounds may have similar activity against HCV.
