About AVI Biopharma, Inc.
AVI BioPharma, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, engages in the development and commercialization of therapeutic products based upon antisense and cancer immunotherapy technology.
The companys RNA-based drug programs are being clinically evaluated for the treatment of Duchenne Muscular Ddystrophy and demonstrated antiviral activity in Ebola, Marburg and H1N1 virus diseases and may prove applicable to other viral targets, such as HCV, Junin, and Dengue viruses.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) programs: The company develops a series of drugs for the potential treatment of DMD. It has two programs underway with drugs that skip exon 51 (AVI-4658) and exon 50 (AVI-5038) and are identifying lead candidates for exons 44, 45 and 53.
AVI-4658: The companys splice switching oligomer (SSO) drug, AVI-4658, targets the frequent mutations resulting in DMD, forces the genetic machinery to skip over an adjacent piece (one or more codons) of RNA, thus restoring the ability of the cell to process genetic instructions, thereby, allowing for production of a new, albeit truncated, dystrophin protein. A phase 1 human clinical trial in boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) was completed. The company has an ongoing phase 1b/2 systemic clinical trial with this product at the Institute of Child Health in London, the United Kingdom and the University of Newcastle, the United Kingdom.
AVI-5038: AVI-5038 is designed to skip exon 50 and potentially overcome the mutational block and restore dystrophin expression.
AVI-5126 Prevention of Restenosis: AVI partnered with Global Therapeutics, a Cook Medical Company, to evaluate AVIs cardiovascular restenosis drug candidate for use on a chromium cobalt drug-eluting stent (DES) for the treatment of cardiovascular restenosis.
Infectious Disease Programs: The companys infectious disease programs are focusing on single-stranded RNA viruses using its proprietary TSO technology with its PMOplus chemistry backbone to target the often fatal diseases, such as Ebola and Marburg Hemorrhagic Fevers, and H1N1 viruses, as well as other items included on the Department of Homeland Securitys list of bioterrorism agents, including Dengue and Junín viruses, anthrax and ricin.
AVI-6002 Ebola virus program: The company demonstrated significant survival in mice, guinea pigs and monkeys when they are treated with AVI-6002 post infection with Ebola virus. In 2008, the company filed an Investigational New Drug application (IND) with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In 2008, it received approval to move into the initial clinical study.
AVI-6003 Marburg virus program: The company demonstrated significant survival in mice, guinea pigs, and monkeys when they are treated with AVI-6003 post-infection with Marburg virus. In 2008, it filed an Investigational New Drug application (IND) with the FDA. In2008, the company received approval to move into the initial clinical study.
AVI-7367 H1N1 virus program: Pandemic H1N1 virus, also known as H1N1 or swine origin influenza virus, is often treated with the standard of care drug oseltamivir, also known as Tamiflu.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
