ANA Therapeutics Startup, Acquired Privately by NeuroBo Pharmaceutical

NeuroBo Pharmaceuticals acquired Anna Therapeutics in a privately held meeting. There was no report or any leaked information until seven months later when the whole truth came into the limelight.

ANA Therapeutics

ANA Therapeutics is a biotech startup that has been running for almost one year. Its focus is on creating and inventing new drugs from the available resources. The company behind the development of ANA-001, a capsule for coronavirus indications. It was last tested in July in Phase 2/3 for Covid-19 treatment. Both boards approved the drug, a report by neurobopharm.

ANA Therapeutics joins NeuroBo

Since the ANA Therapeutics and NeuroBo worked together, they decided to expand their roots. The merger occurred in December 2020 during a harsh pandemic period. The CEO and president of NeuroBO, J. Kang, had this to say. “This is an exciting and transformative acquisition for NeuroBo. It will expand our pipeline with late-stage clinical development programs. We will focus on addressing the urgent need for new treatments to fight Covid-19, a highly infectious and often deadly virus,”


Through some clinical pathways and moderation, ANA-001 is advancing. They aim at accelerating the rate of completing the project. The CEO admitted that if the drugs work, then NeuroBo will be recognized in the market. However, their main aim is to save a life. During the third quarter, the company tested its Phase 2 portion of ANA-001 to verify its power.
The vaccine will play a major role in reducing the inadequacy of the drug in poor nations. However, there is a huge gap as the covid19 variant mutates daily, a report by crunchbase. 
There is a need for companies to collaborate to come up with a complex solution for covid-19. Irene Kim, the board chair, said that people should be ready for therapy and the Covid-19 vaccine annually. Furthermore, they are very hopeful that the ANA-001 will turn out to be the best vaccine.

 A word from both CEOs

The CEO of ANA Therapeutics praised the merger, calling it the best partnership. He proceeded, “We are delighted to join with the NeuroBo team to bring ANA-001 to the millions infected with COVID-19. NeuroBo has the leadership and platform to support the accelerated development of ANA-001. This important compound as a potential treatment for this viral pandemic.”
ANA therapeutics started working on the project after the Covid-19 had worsened in the US. It was aimed to treat patients who had severe or moderate covid19. So they mixed it with Niclosamide, an anti-inflammatory and antiviral agent which has been in the industry for many years. Almost 20 clinics have tested the drug in the US. For sure, abnormalities observed in Covid-19 can be downstream by Niclosamide.
