Virios Therapeutics to Present at the H.C. Wainwright Virtual BioConnect Conference

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 4, 2021--

(Nasdaq: VIRI), a biotechnology company focused on advancing novel antiviral therapies to treat diseases associated with a viral triggered abnormal immune response, announced today that Greg Duncan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and R. Michael Gendreau, M.D., Ph.D., Chief Medical Officer, will present a company overview at the H.C. Wainwright Virtual BioConnect Conference, which is taking place January 11 - 14, 2021.

The presentation will be available for on-demand access beginning Monday, January 11, 2021, at 6:00 AM ET, on Virios Therapeutics’ website under the Investors section: .

Virios Therapeutics is a development-stage biotechnology company focused on advancing novel antiviral therapies to treat diseases associated with a viral triggered abnormal immune response, such as fibromyalgia (“FM”). Overactive immune response related to activation of tissue resident Herpes Simplex Virus-1 (“HSV-1”) has been postulated to be a potential root cause of chronic illnesses such as FM, irritable bowel disease (“IBS”), chronic fatigue syndrome and functional somatic syndrome, all of which are characterized by a waxing and waning manifestation of disease. While not completely understood, there is general agreement in the medical community that activation of HSV-1 is triggered by some form of environmental and/or health stressor. Our lead development candidate (“IMC-1”), is a novel, proprietary, fixed dose combination of famciclovir and celecoxib. IMC-1 represents a novel combination antiviral therapy designed to synergistically suppress HSV-1 activation and replication, with the end goal of reducing viral mediated disease burden.
