Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

 

On July 6, 2020, we entered into a clinical trial agreement with Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center pursuant to which Roswell Park will conduct a Phase 1/2 trial of Ampligen (rintatolimod) in combination with interferon alfa, in cancer patients with COVID-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

 

Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

On July 9, 2020, we issued a press release announcing our entry into the clinical trial agreement with Roswell Park. A copy of the press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1.

 

Cautionary Statements

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate” and similar expressions (as well as other words or expressions referencing future events or circumstances) are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties. For example, significant additional testing and trials will be required to determine whether Ampligen will be effective in the treatment of COVID-19 in humans and no assurance can be given that it will be the case. In this regard, the FDA authorization of the IND and the Roswell clinical trial agreement are the first steps and no assurance can be given as to whether the Roswell trial and/or subsequent trails will prove successful. Some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies are racing to find a treatment for COVID-19. Even if Ampligen proves effective in combating the virus, no assurance can be given that our actions toward proving this will be given first priority or that, even if Ampligen proves effective, another treatment that eventually proves effective will not make our efforts ultimately unproductive. No assurance can be given that future studies will not result in findings that are different from those reported in studies we are relying on. Operating in foreign countries carries with it a number of risks, including potential difficulties in enforcing intellectual property rights. We cannot assure that our potential foreign operations will not be adversely affected by these risks. With regard to the Company’s activities with Ampligen generally, no assurance can be given as to whether current or planned trials will be successful or yield favorable data and the trials are subject to many factors including lack of regulatory approval(s), lack of study drug, or a change in priorities at the institutions sponsoring other trials. In addition, initiation of planned clinical trials may not occur secondary to many factors including lack of regulatory approval(s) or lack of study drug. Even if these clinical trials are initiated, the Company cannot assure that the clinical studies will be successful or yield any useful data or require additional funding. Any forward-looking statements set forth herein speak only as of the date of this press release. The Company does not undertake to update any of these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that occur after the date hereof. The information found on our website is not incorporated by reference herein and is included for reference purposes only.
