For many years, the Zaire species of Ebola virus (ZEBOV), a highly
contagious and lethal human infectious disease, has been associated with periodic outbreaks of hemorrhagic fever in human
populations with mortality rates reaching 90%.
In March 2014, TKMR was granted a Fast Track designation
from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the development of TKM-Ebola, our anti-Ebola viral RNAi therapeutic.
The FDA's Fast Track is a process designed to facilitate the development and expedite the review of drugs in order to get
important new therapies to the patient earlier.
TKM-Ebola is being developed under specific FDA regulatory
guidelines called the “Animal Rule.” The Animal Rule provides that under certain circumstances, where it is unethical
or not feasible to conduct human efficacy studies, the FDA may grant marketing approval based on adequate and well-controlled
animal studies when the results of those studies establish that the drug is reasonably likely to produce clinical benefit
in humans. Demonstration of the product’s safety in humans is still required.
