Revive, Attwill to develop Bucillamine formulation

2023-12-18 10:14 ET - News Release

Mr. Michael Frank reports


Revive Therapeutics Ltd. has signed a collaboration agreement with Attwill Medical Solutions LP for the clinical and commercial development of the company's next-generation lyophilized formulation of Bucillamine.

"The formulation development of our novel lyophilized formulation of Bucillamine at the University of Waterloo is near complete, and we are now entering into the next phase of our product development cycle and preparing for a clinical trial," said Michael Frank, chief executive officer of Revive. "AMS specializes in contract manufacturing of lyophilization and related processing of pharmaceuticals, making it an ideal partner for Revive in achieving its clinical and commercial objectives."

AMS is one of the largest medical lyophilizers in the United States, with current good manufacturing process facilities and dryers that can lyophilize volumes ranging from one to 2,000 litres per cycle. The collaboration between Revive and AMS will support the technology transfer of the lyophilized formulation of Bucillamine from the University of Waterloo to AMS. After completing the technology transfer, AMS will begin the development and clinical trial manufacturing of lyophilized Bucillamine under good manufacturing practices. The company expects to have its novel lyophilized Bucillamine ready for clinical evaluation in 2024.

To recap, the UW research team has improved the solubility of Bucillamine. Subsequent lyophilization has resulted in more than double enhancement of solubility, which would unlock the therapeutic utility of Bucillamine. Specifically, the lyophilized Bucillamine may support the continuation of the research project the company has with the Defence R&D Canada -- Suffield, an agency of the Canadian Department of National Defence, to evaluate Bucillamine as a potential treatment for nerve agent exposure.

Also, Revive and AMS will prepare plans for potential commercial scale-up to support public health medical emergencies, including pandemic influenza, emerging infectious diseases, and medical countermeasure incidents and attacks. In addition, as a potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, Bucillamine may be helpful for orphan indications in rare inflammatory disorders such as ischemia-reperfusion injury (for example organ transplantation), which the Food and Drug Administration granted orphan drug designation for in 2022.
