APASL-Cocrystal Pharma to Present Data on Pan-genotypic NS5B Non-nucleoside Inhibitor CC-31244 for the Treatment of Hepatitis C Virus Infection

Cocrystal Pharma to Present Clinical Data on its Potent Pan-genotypic NS5B Non-nucleoside Inhibitor CC-31244 at the Asian Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver (APASL) Annual Meeting
Posted on: 16 Feb 17

BOTHELL, Wash. and ATLANTA, Feb. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cocrystal Pharma, Inc. (OTCQB:COCP), a company focused on developing novel antiviral therapeutics for human diseases, announced today that it has been selected to give an oral presentation on Saturday, February 18, 2017, 3:45 PM Shanghai time (2:45 AM ET) entitled, “Phase 1 Study to Evaluate the Safety, Pharmacokinetics, and Antiviral Activity of CC-31244, a Pan-Genotypic, Potent Non-Nucleoside NS5B Polymerase Inhibitor for the Treatment of Hepatitis C Virus Infection” at the 26th Conference of the Asian Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver (APASL) held in Shanghai, February 15-19, 2017.

The interim results from the ongoing, randomized, double-blind, Phase 1a/1b study of CC-31244, a pan-genotypic, potent NS5B non-nucleoside inhibitor (NNI) will be presented by Sam Lee, Ph.D., President and co-inventor of the drug. CC-31244 monotherapy produced up to a 3 log drop in viral load with a slow viral rebound post treatment following a 7 day treatment suggesting that CC-31244 could be an important component in an all oral, shorter HCV combination therapy.

Cocrystal Pharma's interim Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Gary Wilcox said, "We are pleased to be given the opportunity to present the interim data at APASL. The interim results show that CC-31244 had a substantial and durable antiviral effect with a favorable safety and tolerability profile in both healthy volunteers and HCV GT1 infected individuals.”

An archived edition of the presentation will be available on the Cocrystal website,, shortly after the event.
