(NYSE American: AIM) today provided an update on the company’s efforts to develop its drug Ampligen as a potential intranasal therapeutic for COVID-19, including the announcement of a new provisional patent application for Ampligen as both an intranasal and an intravenous therapy for what AIM describes as Post-COVID-19 Cognitive Dysfunction (PCCD).
Patients with symptoms of PCCD being treated with Ampligen in the ongoing AMP-511 Early Access Program have reported consistent improvements in cognitive function. Early data has demonstrated that patients with symptoms of PCCD being treated with Ampligen in the ongoing AMP-511 Early Access Program (EAP) have reported improvements in cognitive function, according to Charles Lapp, MD, at Hunter-Hopkins Center in Charlotte, N.C.
“The results of some individual symptoms are very dramatic,” said Lapp, the EAP’s lead investigator. “The results clearly show a significant reduction of one or more symptoms of PCCD in patients after the administration of Ampligen.”
