ALLEN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / July 24, 2023 / Enzolytics, Inc. (OTC PINK:ENZC) ( CORRECTED

Virogentics, Inc. ("VIRO") a wholly owned subsidiary of Enzolytics, Inc. (the "Company" or "ENZC"), a drug development biotech company, announced today it has received approval of the final protocol from the Department for HIV and AIDS, Ministry of Health of the DRC (Democratic Republic of the Congo). This paves the way for the projected August administration of the patented immunotherapy ITV-1 treatment to volunteers under a fast-track protocol supervised by Neuro Pharma Ltd - Rwanda, at HEAL Africa Hospitals, GOMA, PRC and Panzi Hospital, Bukavu, DRC. Approval of the protocol criteria was the final step necessary to meet the requirements to inject the African HIV/Aids volunteer patients, subject to the review and approval of the ethics committee of the Center for Innovative Drug Development and Therapeutic Trials for Africa (CDT-AFRICA).

Dr. Amogne Wondwossen, Associate Professor in Internal Medicine and Infectious diseases (MD, PhD) Addis Ababa University College of Health Sciences, School of Medicine, Internal Medicine Department, Honorary full Professor in Molecular and Clinical Medicine, University of Dundee, Scotland will supervise the clinical trials using best method standards.

Additionally, VIRO anticipates providing an update on the European Medicine Agency (EMA) progress in the coming days.

Harry Zhabiov, Chief Scientific Officer of VIRO stated, "With the approval by the Department for HIV and AIDS, Ministry of Health VIRO has cleared the major hurdles to allow ITV-1 to again be administered into a control group of volunteers suffering from the debilitating disease, HIV/AIDS. We expect the results from this clinical trial test in Africa to show the same results as the Bulgarian clinical trials from 2017."

Barry Kostiner, CEO of Sagaliam, commented, "I continue to be impressed by the progress of Mr. Zhabiov and his team. The need in Africa for low-cost solutions to the AIDS epidemic is great. Virogentics promises to deliver a high efficacy, economic solution. The heavy lifting has already been completed, with the science well understood, and strong expectations for success in the African patient trials. Our African partners, both government leadership and healthcare institutions, understand the importance of ITV-1 and have facilitated accelerated regulatory approval and the launch of clinical trials. The hurdle to bringing the Virogentics solutions to wide adoption is funding. I am grateful that we have the opportunity to use the Sagaliam Nasdaq platform to facilitate the raising of capital to accelerate the administration of Virogentics technology in Africa and globally."
