PHOENIX, Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NanoViricides, Inc. (NYSE:NNVC), (the “Company”) announced President and Chairman, Dr. Anil Diwan’s interview on Uptick Newswire’s “Stock Day” Podcast.

Everett Jolly invited NanoViricides, Inc.’s President and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Anil R. Diwan, Ph.D., back for the first time in over a year to the “Stock Day” podcast for an update.

“Dr. Diwan, I know that you founded the Company in 2005 and you’re getting close to some clinical trials. I just want you to give an update of what’s going on.”

Since uplisting to NYSE-American, the Company has raised over $45 million and have been single-focused on the HerpeCide™ program and they are very excited about their progress in moving forward for clinical trials. They already completed the preliminary safety toxicology study on their main drug candidate. The Company has the ability to make their materials in multi-kilogram quantities and so they are now in a position to file an IND, an Investigational New Drug Application.

NanoViricides, Inc., has a new CEO starting on September 1, 2018, who is a seasoned pharmaceutical executive with over 25 years of experience in drug development and regulatory strategy. Dr. Irach B. Taraporewala is a hands-on CEO with a strong scientific background combined with significant management, leadership, business development and financing experience.

Dr. Diwan believes that the Company will have multiple drugs in clinical trials within the next few years. He further indicated that they have sufficient financing in place to move forward with the first drug. He said they plan to go back to the market at the appropriate time. In getting great test results, they’ll be able to get a better market and be able to raise money with much less dilution. The Company doesn’t necessarily want to market products on their own, but plans to look into partnerships.

He believes they are at an inflection point right now with the first drug candidate, and wanted to point out that they are not a single-drug company. They have three different drug candidates that are ready to go as they raise money. So, just based on the assessments they’ve done to date, they have a very bright future. It’s a broad and deep pipeline. They’re getting very close to that one drug that will change the industry.
