Press Release (ePRNews.com) - RALEIGH, N.C. - Apr 20, 2020 - Joyce Mann, Chairman and CEO of Lenoir-based RMANNCO, Inc., announced today that RMANNCO, Inc. has caused the formal filing of an ‘Emergency PIND’, or, ‘Preliminary Investigational New Drug Application’, under 21 CFR EUA, with the US Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Therapeutic Biological Products Division in Beltsville, MD concerning an experimental prophylaxis modulus designed by its former CEO/CTO, Dr. Joseph A. Resnick.
The Application, requesting ‘EMERGENCY FAST TRACK DESIGNATION’, contains information regarding RMANNCO’s intent to finalize development and lab-testing of a new product, called,”Coronacide (Tm)”, created by Dr. Resnick while in retirement in North Carolina. Mann said that “Coronacide (Tm)” is designed to countermeasure the COVID-19 virus, In Vivo, and has been assigned an ONPD Identification Number, product name and classification leading toward ability to finalize development and clinical trials testing.
Dr. Resnick stepped down as RMANNCO’s CEO in 2016 upon return from SE Asia where he was Senior Research Fellow at University Malaysia Terengganu in the Institute for Marine Biotechnology where he had oversight of five sponsored research projects for RMANNCO.
Ms. Mann said, “Dr. Resnick was asked to come out of ‘Retirement’ in order to assemble/lead a team tasked with development of ‘new approaches’ to dealing with the COVID-19 epidemic.” Mann continued, “Dr. Resnick gladly accepted the challenge and moved quickly to assemble a team that now includes world-class researchers and scientists from across the nation and Washington State University. Part of the project will take place in Lenoir, NC at the company’s HQ/Labs with other testing and Phase I Clinical Trials to take place at the Washington State University, Pullman Campus, and at the Puyallup Conservation Center where Dr. Resnick is a Visiting Scientist and Member of the Faculty.”
Ms. Mann said she has received ‘very fast and positive feedback responses’ from the FDA’s ‘ONPD’ Division (Office of Non-Prescription Drugs) regarding the submission of the request for a letter of ‘Emergency Fast Track Status’ and the general application. Ms. Mann said that Dr. Resnick has been in communication with the White House and has corresponded with Dr. Peter Navarro several times. Resnick said that his outreach and communications with President Trump’s COVID-19 Task Force, headed by VP Mike Pence, were, “Very well-received and responded-to within minutes.” Dr. Resnick said, “I’ve worked with various projects and agencies for +30 years and have never had such quick and courteous responses from ‘Uncle Sam’ as I have had over the past few days from the White House and the FDA. My queries, requests for assistance and guidance received almost immediate responses … within 5-10 minutes of my placing the calls. President Trump and VP Mike Pence’s COVID-19 Team are absolutely on top of this issue.”
Mann stated, “The company’s ongoing activities and Dr. Resnick’s innovative technical approach, enabled a seamless transition into the metalo-biomedical research area enabling configuration of novel pharmacotherapies with unique antagonistic features”.
