Hemispherx (AMEX:HEB) Seeks Rebound: Phase 6 Flu Pandemic


With the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declaring the flu a pandemic of phase 6, one company looking to make waves is Hemispherx BioPharma (AMEX:HEB).

Hemispherx has recently been in limbo awaiting FDA decision on the long-awaited treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Ampligen.

Ampligen, also known as poly I:poly C12U, is an experimental immunomodulatory double stranded RNA drug developed by HEMISPHERx Biopharma of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Ampligen was first synthesized in the 1970s and has been proposed and tested as a treatment for many illnesses, but primarily chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).
