Inhaled IFN-β

Interferon beta (IFN-β) is a naturally occurring protein, which orchestrates the body's antiviral responses. Viruses, including coronaviruses, have evolved mechanisms which suppress natural IFN-β production, thereby helping the virus evade the immune system.

To the airway, for the airway

Watch this short animation to learn more about the benefits of direct delivery to the lungs versus systemic delivery of IFN-β.

Delivering Interferon Beta to the Airway

Host-directed antivirals strengthen the cell’s antiviral defences, so they are better able to fight off the virus.

Not all antivirals are the same

Watch this short animation to learn the difference between host-directed antivirals and direct acting antivirals.

Clinical Trials

Synairgen's primary focus is developing inhaled interferon beta to meet the urgent need for the treatment of severe viral lung infections.
