Aceragen’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Arrevus, awarded $45 million funding agreement from the Department of Defense’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency for Development of ACG-701 as Medical Countermeasure Against Melioidosis

Jan 5, 2022

Aceragen Raleigh-Durham, NC, Jan. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arrevus, Inc., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing therapies for orphan infectious diseases with high unmet medical need, today announced it has been awarded an agreement under which the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has committed up to $45 million in funding to support the development and clinical investigation of Arrevus’ proprietary formulation of sodium fusidate, ACG-701, as a medical countermeasure against Burkholderia pseudomallei, the pathogen that causes melioidosis, for which there are currently no FDA-approved therapies. "Sodium fusidate has a distinct antimicrobial activity profile with potency that dramatically increases in the low-pH intracellular environment where Burkholderia pseudomallei tends to hide. We believe this novel characteristic, combined with ACG-701’s patented oral formulation that rapidly achieves steady state in circulation, will greatly increase the opportunity for clinical effectiveness against this pathogen," said Carl Kraus, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Aceragen and the principal investigator of the program. The DTRA funding will cover manufacturing and supply for clinical execution of a Phase 2 program, and other associated clinical and non-clinical development activities for the treatment and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) of melioidosis. “Sodium fusidate is first line treatment for a number of indications outside the United States, demonstrating broad utility and a remarkable safety profile. Arrevus’ formulation offers the opportunity to treat poorly served or neglected orphan indications, and to meet the US Government’s need for a potent countermeasure against melioidosis,” said Erin Reicher, PhD, Chief of the Vaccines and Therapeutics Division of the Chemical and Biological Technologies Directorate at DTRA. Arrevus, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aceragen, Inc., is planning to initiate clinical development in the first half of 2022. "This is a terrific opportunity to collaborate with DTRA to fill a long-standing gap in the biodefense armamentarium. Leveraging the significant work that has already gone into ACG-701’s development has provided an excellent basis for advancing the program. We are looking forward to 2022 as we start an array of clinical studies for the product, including for melioidosis and cystic fibrosis." added John Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of Aceragen.
