“We are pleased with the preliminary results of this sponsored market research which show that the majority of our customers are satisfied with Tollovid,” said Dr. Dorit Arad, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of 3CL Pharma. “As we add to the growing body of information related to COVID, Long COVID and 3CL protease inhibitor products, we believe that the insights gained from this market research will enable us to tailor our offering to meet the needs of immunocompetent individuals. (non-immune compromised) and Long COVID communities, which currently have no 3CL protease inhibitor options on the market.
“Lessons learned from the use of our dietary supplement Tollovid will also allow us to design future long-chronic COVID clinical trials for our therapeutic drug candidate Tollovir™, which is currently being prepared to enter a pivotal Phase 2 clinical study/ 3 in hospitalized COVID. patients,” said Gerald Commissiong, CEO of Todos Medical and interim CEO of 3CL Pharma. “Due to Tollovid’s status as a dietary supplement in the US market, we have a huge strategic advantage over Long COVID’s competitors because we are able to listen to patients describe first-hand how Tollovid supplementation , alone or sometimes in combination with other products, helps them and applies this knowledge to our formal Tollovir Long COVID drug development plans.
Market research survey respondents generally followed Tollovid label directions, taking 12 capsules daily for 5 days among Acute COVID respondents, and taking at least 2 bottles of Tollovid as directed among Long COVID respondents. This market research is not designed to assess the optimal dosage of Tollovid. No negative effects from interactions with other concomitant medications or supplements were reported by survey respondents.

About Tollovid® and Tollovid Daily™
Tollovid and Tollovid Daily are dietary supplements made from natural ingredients that help support and maintain healthy immune function and also have potent 3CL protease inhibiting properties based on in vitro functional tests that show strong inhibition of 3CL protease activity. Tollovid’s IC50 3CL protease binding affinity is at least ten times (10x) higher than the IC50 3CL protease binding affinity published by Ivermectin. The IC50 binding affinity of Tollovid Daily’s 3CL protease is at least two and a half times (2.5x) that of ivermectin. Tollovid and Tollovid Daily bind to the active site (receptor binding domain) of the 3CL protease. Tollovid has a 5-day dosing regimen, with 4 doses of 3 pills taken each day which provides maximum immune support. Tollovid Daily is a daily immune support product with a twice daily dosing schedule.
Tollvir® is a 3CL protease inhibitor and anti-cytokine therapeutic candidate for the intervention of the Nidovirus group of viruses which includes coronaviruses such as SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19, SARS-CoV-1, the MERS and the 229E. Tollvir is made from natural ingredients qualified to provide strong 3CL protease inhibition in vitro, as well as strong anti-cytokine activity. Tollovir has successfully completed a Phase 2 clinical trial in Israel for the treatment of patients hospitalized with COVID-19. Tollvir will be developed for the treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 (severe and critical), moderate COVID-19, long-haul COVID, and potentially pediatric COVID-19. Todos has licensed the rights of Tollvir to T-Cell Protect Hellas SA for the Greek market.
About Todos Medical Ltd.
Founded in Rehovot, Israel, with offices in New York, Todos Medical Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF) designs life-saving diagnostic solutions for the early detection of various cancers. The company’s state-of-the-art and patented Biochemical Infrared Assays (TBIA) is a proprietary cancer screening technology using peripheral blood analysis that examines the influence of cancer on the immune system, looking for changes biochemicals in blood mononuclear cells and plasma. The two cancer screening tests developed in-house by Todos, TMB-1 and TMB-2, have received CE marking in Europe. Todos recently acquired US medical diagnostics company Provista Diagnostics, Inc. to obtain the rights to its CLIA/CAP-certified laboratory based in Alpharetta, Georgia, which currently performs COVID PCR tests and the breast cancer screening blood test. Videssa® exclusive to Provista at the commercial stage.
Todos also develops 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 (PBL) and monocytes to resist exogenous mitogenic stimulation that prompts them to enter the cell cycle. Some diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease, are thought to be the result of compromised cellular machinery that leads to aberrant cell cycle reentry by neurons, which then leads to apoptosis. LymPro is unique in using peripheral blood lymphocytes as a surrogate for neuronal cell function, suggesting a common relationship between PBLs and brain neurons.
Todos formed the Israel-based majority-owned joint venture 3CL Pharma, Ltd with NLC Pharma in March 2022 to consolidate all intellectual property pursuing the development of diagnostic tests targeting the 3CL protease, as well as protease inhibitor botanicals and pharmaceuticals 3CL that target a fundamental reproductive mechanism of coronaviruses. 3CL Pharma, through the Todos brand, has commercialized the 3CL protease inhibitor immune support dietary supplement Tollovid® in the United States, is developing the dual mechanism 3CL protease inhibitor and anti-cytokine therapeutic drug candidate Tollvir ®, while also developing the diagnostic 3CL protease inhibitor TolloTest™.
