It is unusual for one individual to possess the skills, dedication and perseverance to direct a small biotech company for a number of years to this point. He has run the company on a financial shoestring with very little help and has maneuvered the company to the point where IPIX has partnered with AS to develop Brilacidin for UP ; Oral Brilacidin for UC is ready to enter a phase 2 FDA study; Brilacidin for OM is ready for a stage 3 FDA study; when funds are available Kevetrin will be developed as an oral medication; then Kevetrin may be ready to enter into a stage 2 FDA trial for Ovarian Cancer. In a few days we will know if Brilacidin is active against Covid 19 infected respiratory epithelial cells after a battery of tests. I have been told by a biologist I trust that Vero monkey cells and Human cells are very similar genetically which means there is a substantial chance the second round of RBL tests will be positive. If positive Brilacidin will move to clinical trials. Obviously it goes without saying, the future testing of Brilacidin against Covid19 may not work out and IPIX will have a substantial set back. However, it will have received a substantial amount of research and development with little expense. On the other hand if Brilacidin proves to be an effective treatment for Covid 19, it will save an untold number of lives and eliminate much loss and suffering. Mr Ehrlich and the IPIX shareholders will be richly rewarded. The Polymedix scientists, DeGrado,Klein,Scott and others who developed Brilacidin will have a shot at the Nobel prize. The field of defensin mimetics and protein chemistry they have pioneered will be validated and a bright future for other revolutionary medications and treatments will follow. Brilacidin's research and development will continue and multiple future indications are possible. Mr Ehrlicht has accomplished a great deal. It is disappointing and discouraging you and others do not appreciate his efforts and abilities. All IMO Best wishes,Farrell Imagine Leo telling a reporter he is a genius. A genius with a one employee company.
