The Synairgen trials caused much excitement, strongly demonstrating that treatments using an interferon beta inhalation in COVID-19 patients significantly improved their condition and sped up recovery.  BetterLife is due to start its clinical trials later this fall in Australia for AP-003, BetterLife’s inhaled human interferon alpha 2b, in patients with mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19. In the interview, Dr Doroudian, explains why the AP-003 formulation potentially represents a superior mode of treatment over interferon beta due to its proven anti-viral therapeutic. He also discusses: the recent merger between BetterLife and Altum; why the Company has chosen Australia to kick off its 150 patient clinical trial; and how using virtual monitoring technology will help BetterLife with patient recruitment.
