13 May Catalent Signs Development Agreement with Ennaid Therapeutics on its COVID-19 Lead Program
SOMERSET, N.J. (PRWEB) MAY 13, 2020
Catalent, the leading global provider of advanced delivery technologies, development, and manufacturing solutions for drugs, biologics, cell and gene therapies, and consumer health products, today announced a collaboration with Ennaid Therapeutics to develop an oral, antiviral treatment targeted at COVID-19. Under the terms of the agreement, Catalent will develop a powder-in-capsule formulation of Ennaid’s ENU200 program, a patent-pending, repurposed oral antiviral drug.
ENU200 was selected by Ennaid as a candidate to treat COVID-19 following a bioinformatic search for in silico identification of prior-approved chemical compounds blocking the coronavirus proteins, spike-S glycoprotein and the key coronavirus enzyme, Mpro. Catalent’s development site at San Diego will manufacture roller-compacted formulations of ENU200 within capsules for further investigation.
