Protecting humanity against some of the world’s more severe infectious diseases 

A LEADER IN GLOBAL HEALTH & INFECTIOUS DISEASES

WHO WE ARE

"...the next epidemic could originate on the computer screen of a terrorist intent on using genetic engineering to create a synthetic version of the smallpox virus...” - Bill Gates

SIGA is a leader in global health, developing medicines to prevent and treat emerging infectious diseases with high unmet medical needs.

Infectious diseases pose an imminent and severe threat to global health that cannot be adequately addressed with vaccines alone. Smallpox, mpox, and other orthopoxviruses are particularly worrisome because they are highly infectious and deadly. We are developing best-in-class products to treat these infections in patients worldwide. 
 
Society must take proactive steps to prevent and stop outbreaks – whether natural, accidental, or intentional. We are committed to partnering with governments, commercial organizations, foundations, and others who share responsibility for global health security.

We are equipped to respond rapidly to orthopoxvirus outbreaks, collaborating with healthcare professionals, governments, and communities to minimize the spread and impact on people.

Global cooperation is essential to prevent and stop infectious disease outbreaks. Our rich history of successful partnerships with over 25 countries and many organizations enables an extensive reach across multiple stakeholders to combat orthopoxvirus outbreaks. Additionally, the U.S. government has relied on our TPOXX treatment for over a decade to equip the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) against a potential smallpox outbreak. 

OUR PRODUCT

TPOXX® (tecovirimat) is a best-in-class product franchise

TPOXX is a highly targeted antiviral with a strong safety profile. It prevents viral particles from exiting the cell in which they are produced, thereby slowing the spread of infection, and allowing the patient’s immune system to clear the virus.

 

Oral TPOXX is the first U.S. FDA-approved antiviral treatment for smallpox. It is also available in the U.S. in an IV formulation. In Canada, oral TPOXX is approved for the same indication. In the EU and UK, TPOXX is known as Tecovirimat-SIGA and is approved for the treatment of orthopoxvirus infections, including mpox, smallpox, cowpox, and vaccinia complications following vaccination against smallpox.
 
Additionally, we are working to advance regulatory approval for TPOXX in new indications and formulations, including as a post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) for smallpox, treatment for mpox (U.S.), and a pediatric formulation for the treatment of smallpox.
