Several clinical studies have highlighted the potential role of remdesivir (GS-5734), as an effective SARS-CoV-2 antiviral drug. Studies examining the pharmacological and human safety profile of remdesivir will enable the preclinical and clinical evaluation of these drugs for the treatment of COVID-19.

Cambridge Bioscience offers a wide range of sizes of high purity remdesivir with short lead-times from our partners Cayman Chemical and MedChemExpress.
