About Apabetalone

Apabetalone (RVX–208), is a first–in–class, epigenetic small molecule, or gene regulating, therapeutic candidate. It is a selective BET (bromodomain and extra–terminal) inhibitor, which works in preventing disease by turning genes on and/or off through regulation of gene expression. The prevalence of BET proteins in the human body allows apabetalone, through its unique mechanism of action, to simultaneously target multiple disease–causing biological processes while maintaining a well described safety profile "" leading to a new way to treat chronic disease.


In February 2020, apabetalone became the first therapy of its kind to receive Breakthrough Therapy Designation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) "" for a major cardiovascular indication "" following the ground–breaking findings from the BETonMACE Phase Three study. Data from BETonMACE showed apabetalone can potentially prevent major adverse cardiac events among high–risk cardiovascular disease patients who also have type 2 diabetes mellitus.


On March 23, 2020, Resverlogix launched its COVID–19 program, enlisting world–renowned collaborators. Studies demonstrate that apabetalone has the potential to act against COVID–19 with a unique dual–mechanism: the first pillar of apabetalone's dual–mechanism is preventing viruses from entering the cells and replicating; the second pillar is averting runaway inflammatory reactions that can cause severe and lasting organ damage. A Phase 2 clinical trial is evaluating apabetalone in combination with standard of care for patients hospitalized with COVID–19. Apabetalone treatment could potentially reduce the severity and duration of COVID–19. Apabetalone's unique dual–mechanism also means that it is likely to show efficacy against COVID–19 variants and may even help fight other related viruses.

Apabetalone is the only drug of its class with a well–established safety record in human clinical trials, with well over 4200 patient–years on drug across 10 clinical trials.

About Resverlogix

Founded in 2001, Resverlogix is a Calgary based late–stage biotechnology company and the world leader in epigenetics, or gene regulation, with the goal of developing first–in–class therapies for the benefit of patients with chronic disease.

Resverlogix is commercializing a new class of epigenetic therapies designed to regulate gene expression, turning disease–associated genes "on" or "off". We aim to improve patients' lives by restoring biological functions "" altered by serious illnesses such as cardiovascular disease "" back to a healthier state.

The Company's clinical program is focused on evaluating the lead epigenetic candidate apabetalone for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and associated comorbidities, and COVID–19.

Sustainability necessary for the hotel industry

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Barrows, the provider of hotel investment and advisory services for hotels in the Middle East and Africa is investing heavily in making the hotel industry more sustainable.

A location where many people come together are hotels and hotel resorts. It is not without reason that the hotel industry is known as a major consumer of energy and consumption of food and drinks. But also consider, for example, the disposal of waste. There is still a lot to gain and improve in the hotel industry. Barrows Hotel Enterprises focuses on making the industry more sustainable and takes this into account in the choice for construction and hotel operator.

Employees and hotel guests have an important role in sustainability. New processes are used by them every day. The social responsibility of the hotel operator is increasing and that is necessary according to Chairman Erwin Jager of Barrows Hotel Enterprises.

Hotel operators and investors fully support making the industry more sustainable. It's necessary, because one of the main drivers is the increased attention from the global society. “The hotel guest really pays attention to the sustainability of the hotels and we see that when they make a choice for the hotel booking,” said Erwin Jager of Barrows.

Hotel guests are also increasingly willing to pay more for the room and facilities if this benefits a more sustainable stay. The investment will therefore be able to be repaid sooner than was previously the case.

As a Hospitality Professional, we are closely involved in the triangle between developer, investor and hotel operator. We have developed a sustainable strategy that is easy to implement during the construction phase and that benefits the operational processes of the hotel operator. We really add value with these improvements even if the location is in Africa, Middle East or Asia.

Without a hotel operator there is no business model and therefore no cash flow. By focusing on sustainable elements that creates the link between building and company during the first phase, the company is much better able to meet the requirements of hotel guests when it comes to sustainable business processes.

“The use of an international quality mark therefore can give an enormous boost to the quality mark of the hotels and their management. Hotel guests really opt for this and are prepared to pay a higher room rate or an additional service charge”, said Erwin Jager of Barrows.

Barrows Hotel Enterprises internationally manages more than 10,000 hotel rooms in more than 10 countries. The company started in 2008 as a real estate investor in the residential market in Dubai. Since 2012, Barrows has changed its strategy and the company is fully focused on the fast–growing hotel industry in the Middle East and Africa.

Vaccitech Announces Publication of Second Phase 1 Clinical Trial Results of ChAdOx1 Vaccine in Development for the MERS Coronavirus

The Phase 1 clinical trial was conducted by The King Abdullah International Medical Research Centre (KAIMRC), in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), in partnership with the University of Oxford. Vaccitech retains commercial rights to this vaccine.

The ChAdOx1 MERS vaccine candidate was generally well tolerated and induced both humoral and cellular immune responses, which continued through the six–month follow–up period.

Study published online in The Lancet Microbe (–5247(21)00193–2/fulltext).

OXFORD, United Kingdom, Nov. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vaccitech plc (NASDAQ: VACC), a clinical–stage biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of novel immunotherapeutics and vaccines for the treatment and prevention of infectious diseases and cancer, today announced the publication in The Lancet Microbe of the first Phase 1 clinical trial conducted in the Middle East evaluating the safety and tolerability of the ChAdOx1 MERS (Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome) vaccine candidate. The study builds on the first Phase 1 clinical trial of ChAdOx1 MERS conducted in the United Kingdom and published in Lancet ID last year.

The Phase 1 trial is part of a collaboration between the University of Oxford's Jenner Institute and the King Abdullah International Medical Research Center (KAIMRC). It is the first vaccine clinical trial to be conducted within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Vaccitech retains commercial rights to the vaccine.

"The high fatality rate of diagnosed MERS–CoV makes it one of the most dangerous coronaviruses communicable between humans," says Naif Alharbi, KAIMRC, DPhil, vaccinologist and co–principal investigator on the MERS vaccine trial. "Research into robust preventative measures for a virus with pandemic potential is a global health imperative. The completion of our trial is the latest achievement for KAIMRC's world–leading MERS research and supports advancing the ChAdOx1 MERS vaccine candidate into its next phase of development. This multi–partner experience has also set the stage for more MERS vaccine clinical development in KSA, improving both research and regulatory expertise."

Dame Sarah Gilbert Ph.D., co–founder of Vaccitech said, "This was the first phase I trial of any vaccine conducted in KSA, and it is fitting that it was a trial of a vaccine against MERS. The results provide further evidence on the tolerability and immunogenicity profile of this vaccine candidate and pave the way for its further development."

Tom Evans, M.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Vaccitech added, "These important trial results, collected by scientists at the Jenner and KAIMRC, have the potential to progress us toward a much–needed vaccine for MERS. Their publication also builds on the already extensive dataset which supports our ChAdOx platform for prophylactic, pandemic preparedness, and therapeutic uses."

Twenty–four healthy adult volunteers aged 18 to 50 years received one of three single doses of ChAdOx1 MERS (at dose levels of 5 x 109 viral particles (VP), 2.5 x 1010 VP and 5 x 1010 VP). The primary objective was to assess safety and tolerability. Secondary objectives included evaluation of cellular and humoral immunogenicity from baseline through six months. The trial showed that ChAdOx1 MERS was generally well tolerated with most adverse events either mild or moderate. The most common adverse event was headache (58% of volunteers) followed by muscle pain (54%). The vaccine candidate induced robust antibody and T cell immune responses in all volunteers. Antibodies peaked at day 28 and T cell responses peaked at day 14, both of which were maintained until the end of follow–up at six months. The results of the study support advancing the vaccine candidate into Phase 2 development.

There have been more than 2,500 cases of MERS reported globally to the World Health Organization (WHO), including 886 deaths. The MERS case fatality rate is 34%, an order of magnitude greater than the rate reported for the COVID–19 coronavirus, SARS–CoV–2. The WHO lists MERS–CoV as a priority pathogen for vaccine development due to its threat to global health security.

Notes to editors:

About the trial and KAIMRC

The trial took place at King Abdullah International Medical Research Center (KAIMRC) and King Abdulaziz Medical City (KAMC). Both are part of the Ministry of National Guard Health Affairs (Saudi NGHA). KAMC in Riyadh has been recognised as a distinguished healthcare provider in Saudi Arabia and the region, with a bed capacity of 1501, and commenced its operations in May 1983. Since then, it has continued expanding, while providing services for a rapidly growing patient population in all of its catchment areas. Recently KAIMRC and KAMC have received approval for a Phase 1 clinical trial unit from the national regulator (Saudi FDA).

About MERS

First identified in 2012 in Saudi Arabia, MERS is a viral respiratory illness caused by the highly pathogenic MERS coronavirus (MERS–CoV). MERS–CoV is likely a zoonotic bat virus, with the dromedary camel implicated as the major animal host for spread to humans. Human to human transmission via droplets and contact can occur, especially in nosocomial settings, which lack robust infection control practices. MERS–CoV leads to severe disease of the lower respiratory tract, with a high symptomatic case fatality rate of ~34%. More than 2,500 cases of MERS have now been reported from 27 countries, including 12 Eastern Mediterranean countries. Globally, as of June 2021, MERS has now been responsible for 886 deaths with eight new cases of MERS reported from January 1, 2021, to May 3, 2021, in Saudi Arabia and UAE.
