GFP gene in a latter construct is encoded in negative-sense and flanked by the 3'- and 5'-noncoding region of the NS RNA segment of influenza A/WSN/33 virus [2] placed between a truncated human RNA polymerase I promotor (POLI) and hepatitis delta virus ribozyme (R).Theexpressed subunits of the viral polymerases and nucleoprotein replicate and transcribe the influenza virus-like RNA expressed by pPOLI-GFP-RT into GFP mRNA, resulting in the detection of GFP activity in transfected cells.
According to the companies, the merger creates a clinical-stage company with a diversified development portfolio of product candidates addressing novel targets for four distinct orphan diseases: Hepatitis Delta Virus, bariatric surgery-induced hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia, pulmonary arterial hypertension, and lymphedema.
Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) is a defective sub-viral agent, which requires the hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBsAg) to be complete and infective.

An outbreak of hepatitis B primarily among IDUs in Pierce County, Washington, detected in April 2000, included 60 cases and resulted in three deaths among IDUs co-infected with hepatitis delta virus. A program to administer hepatitis B vaccine to IDUs was implemented to control the outbreak, and the number of cases identified decreased from 13 per month in May to two cases since November.

Because the delta virus that causes delta hepatitis is a defective virus, meaning it cannot replicate on its own, it needs a "helper" virus--i.e., hepatitis B.
