ReViral Announces FDA Fast Track Designation Granted to Sisunatovir For The Treatment of Serious Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection
ReViral Ltd., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing, and commercializing antiviral therapeutics that target respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Fast Track designation to sisunatovir for the treatment of patients with serious RSV infection. Sisunatovir is the company’s most advanced product candidate, with two international multicentre Phase 2 clinical studies recently initiated in pediatric and high-risk adult patient populations.
“We are very pleased that sisunatovir has received Fast Track designation for the treatment of serious RSV, a significant global health concern” said Alex Sapir, CEO, ReViral. “RSV affects approximately 64 million people and causes approximately 160,000 deaths each year. We look forward to working closely with the FDA throughout the clinical development of this program with the goal of bringing a potentially life-saving treatment to patients as quickly as possible.”
Fast Track is a process intended to facilitate the development and expediate the review of drug candidates that treat serious conditions and fill an unmet medical need. A drug candidate with Fast Track designation is eligible for greater access to the FDA for the purpose of expediting the drug product candidate’s development, review, and potential approval.

It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.
Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.
The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.
CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.
