Revive Appoints Infectious Disease Expert As Scientific Adviser

Revive Therapeutics (CSE: RVV) this morning announced that they have appointed Dr David Boulware as scientific advisor, aimed at assisting the company with its previously announced work on infectious diseases.

Boulware is expected to guide Revive on its current and future clinical programs, which includes the research and development strategy for infectious diseases. Boulware is an infectious disease physician-scientist, and is notably the principal investigator of a COVID-19 clinical trial that is looking at hydroxychloroquine and its post-exposure effects on coronavirus ( Identifier: NCT04308668).

Currently Professor of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases and International Medicine at The University of Minnesota, Boulware is primarily focused on meningitis, with his latest research involving improving the clinical outcomes of HIV-infected persons with cryptococcal meningitis and TB meningitis. Currently, Boulware serves on the United Nations and World Health Organization’s health panels for cryptococcal meningitis, as well as the WHO’s panel for advanced HIV disease.

I am excited to assist Revive in their objective in pursuing the clinical development of Bucillamine for infectious diseases and its prospect as a potential solution for COVID-19.
