New York, NY, and Tel Aviv, ISRAEL, Jan. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — Todos Medical, Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF), a comprehensive medical diagnostics and related solutions company, today released videos of recent interviews with Fox Business, Black New Channel and NewsMax. CEO Gerald Commissiong discusses strategies for improving the current COVID testing paradigm in the United States and the interplay with the effectiveness of emerging oral antiviral treatments, including Pfizer’s Paxlovid® and Merck’s Mulnupiravir® that both received Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the US Food & Drug Administration in December 2021, as well as Todos’ investigational oral all natural botanical drug candidate Tollovir™ that will be reading out on Phase 2 clinical trial data for the treatment of hospitalized (severe/critical) COVID-19 patients on January 27th, 2022.

“As we raise the profile of what we are doing at Todos to help with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to taking a non-political position, speaking with both Democrats and Republicans, and staying squarely rooted in making recommendations based on the best currently available data to promote the best use of the FDA-authorized tools at the public’s disposal to help guide the population back towards normal life while the pandemic continues forward,” said Gerald E. Commissiong, President & CEO of Todos Medical. “It is our belief that with widespread fast turnaround time, PCR testing can be used for surveillance to catch people as early in the disease course as possible, preferably in the asymptomatic phase when it is possible to cut the chains of infection from people unknowingly spreading the disease potentially due to a false sense of security. Once the infected are identified, the next step is to make oral antivirals broadly available to them to further reduce the likelihood to progression to the hospital, and also reduce the risk of Long COVID by killing the SARS-CoV-2 virus inside the patient as quickly as possible before it spreads to critical organs. Until this happens, it will be very difficult to return to a normal way of life.”
About Todos Medical Ltd.
Founded in Rehovot, Israel with offices in New York City, Todos Medical Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF) engineers life-saving diagnostic solutions for the early detection of a variety of cancers. In 2021, Todos completed the acquisition of U.S.-based medical diagnostics company Provista Diagnostics, Inc. to gain rights to its Alpharetta, Georgia-based CLIA/CAP certified lab currently performing PCR COVID testing and Provista’s proprietary commercial-stage Videssa® breast cancer blood test. The Company’s state-of-the-art and patented Todos Biochemical Infrared Analyses (TBIA) is a proprietary cancer-screening technology using peripheral blood analysis that deploys deep examination into cancer’s influence on the immune system, looking for biochemical changes in blood mononuclear cells and plasma. Todos’ two internally-developed cancer-screening tests, TMB-1 and TMB-2, have received a CE mark in Europe. Todos is focused on the commercialization of Videssa and will bring the TBIA tests to market thereafter.
Todos has entered into a joint venture with NLC Pharma targeting diagnostic and testing solutions to address the COVID-19 pandemic. The Joint-Venture is pursuing the development of diagnostic tests targeting the 3CL protease, as well as 3CL protease inhibitors that target a fundamental reproductive mechanism of coronaviruses. The Company’s proprietary therapeutic candidate Tollovir™ is currently in a Phase 2 clinical trial to treat hospitalized COVID-19 patients in Israel, and is preparing to initiate Phase 2/3 clinical trials for both hospitalized and non-hospitalized patients in Israel.
Todos is also developing blood tests for the early detection of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease. The Lymphocyte Proliferation Test (LymPro Test™) is a diagnostic blood test that determines the ability of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) and monocytes to withstand an exogenous mitogenic stimulation that induces them to enter the cell cycle. It is believed that certain diseases, most notably Alzheimer’s disease, are the result of compromised cellular machinery that leads to aberrant cell cycle re-entry by neurons, which then leads to apoptosis. LymPro is unique in the use of peripheral blood lymphocytes as a surrogate for neuronal cell function, suggesting a common relationship between PBLs and neurons in the brain.
Todos is also distributing certain (COVID-19) testing materials and supplies to CLIA-certified labs in the United States. The products cover multiple suppliers of PCR testing kits, extraction kits, automation materials and supplies, as well as COVID-19 antibody and antigen testing kits.
