ContraVir is developing a portfolio of novel compounds against hepatitis B, including TXL™ (formerly CMX157), a highly potent analog of the successful antiviral drug tenofovir DF (Viread®), now in Phase 2 trials, and CRV431, a next generation cyclophilin inhibitor. ContraVir is also developing Valnivudine™ (formerly FV-100), now in Phase 3 trials, for the treatment of herpes zoster, or shingles, and the pain associated with shingles.
A Shingles Treatment with Best in Class Potential
Our lead candidate is Valnivudine™, a potent oral antiviral being developed for the treatment of herpes zoster, commonly known as shingles. Valnivudine™ is well-tolerated and has been shown to reduce PHN pain in Phase 2 trials.
