The last significant announcement from Sunshine Biopharma was an agreement signed with the University of Arizona to develop novel PLpro inhibitors discovered in partnership with researchers from the University of Illinois Chicago.

The deal was announced in late February, with SBFM focusing on determining the pharmacokinetics and in vivo safety and dosage properties of the inhibitors, which the universities own.

The tests will be conducted on mice, after which the successful molecules will then be tested on human beings.
