A treatment for COVID-19 patients – developed in St. Louis by the team at Confluence Discovery Technologies as part of Aclaris Therapeutics – is beginning human studies. The team is very excited about the potential for this drug and has been working with the FDA for the past three months to get approval to begin in-patient studies.
Confluence grew out of the BioGenerator Labs and was purchased by Aclaris Therapeutics in 2017. Confluence's R&D has remained in St. Louis at The BioSTL Building.
