About ContraVir Pharmaceuticals
ContraVir is a clinical state biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of targeted therapies for liver disease arising from non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (“NASH”) and chronic hepatitis infection (“HBV,” “HCV,” “HDV”). The company’s lead drug candidate is CRV431, which reduces liver fibrosis and hepatocellular carcinoma tumor burden in experimental models of NASH. Preclinical studies also have demonstrated antiviral activities towards HBV, HCV, and HDV through several mechanisms. These diverse therapeutic activities result from CRV431’s potent inhibition of cyclophilin enzymes, which are involved in many disease processes. Currently, in clinical phase development, CRV431 shows potential in the overall treatment of liver disease – from triggering events through to end-stage disease.
