Amarex in the Fight Against COVID-19

Germantown, MD, USA (September 02, 2020) – In early March, Amarex Clinical Research, LLC, an NSF International company began work on a potential treatment for COVID-19. An Amarex client had an immune response modulating monoclonal antibody product in clinical development for HIV that was quickly re-purposed for COVID-19 treatment. Amarex managed to get U.S. FDA approval for compassionate use of the product to treat severely ill patients in a New York City hospital. Soon thereafter, Amarex initiated multiple projects for other clients’ therapeutic, prophylactic, and diagnostic products for COVID-19. Amarex achieved several emergency IND approvals and began several COVID-19 clinical trials. In parallel, Amarex submitted several Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) requests for the use of new COVID-19 virus diagnostics, and an expanded access approval for use of a device to filter cytokines from patients’ blood.

Since March, Amarex has helped 16 companies on 32 separate projects for COVID-19 products: 5 devices/diagnostics, 7 drug therapies, 2 biologic therapies, and 2 vaccines. We have executed applications and requests for: compassionate use, emergency use, EUA, Clinical Trial Agreement, pre-IND meeting, eIND, fast track designation, and expanded access in the U.S., UK, Europe, and Asia.

Dr. Kazem Kazempour, President & CEO, stated, “Over these past six months Amarex staff has worked tirelessly to obtain expedited regulatory approvals and to initiate clinical trials that rapid test for COVID-19, treat patients with the virus, and develop products for COVID-19. I am amazed and grateful for the efforts of Amarex colleagues on behalf of patients and our clients.”
