Summary
Brief summary
Starpharma is developing a nasal spray intended to inactivate severe acute respiratory virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19). The nasal spray contains 1% w/w SPL7013, a molecule with broad spectrum antiviral and virucidal activity. SPL7013 is able to physically block SARS-CoV-2 attachment to cells and therefore inhibit infection.

The primary objective of this clinical investigation is to assess the safety and tolerability of 1% SPL7013 Nasal Spray applied to the nasal mucosa of healthy volunteers 4 times a day for 14 days.
