Product News Jun 01, 2011
BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. has announced that the company's Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Tamar Ben-Yedidia, will present the results of the Company's Phase IIa clinical trial at the 2011 BIO International Convention:
2011 BIO International Convention
27 - 30 June 2011, in Washington, D.C., USA
Title: Clinical progress towards a universal influenza vaccine
The Phase IIa clinical trial was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center, safety and immunogenicity study in 200 healthy volunteers, aged 18-49, being conducted at two clinical research centers in Israel.
In February 2011, BiondVax announced positive interim safety results from the trial. These results showed that no severe adverse events were found in any of the participants, further reinforcing the positive safety profile of the Multimeric-001 vaccine found in the Company’s Phase I/II trials.
BiondVax is currently in the final stages of collecting and analyzing the data regarding the immunogenicity of the vaccine, and will announce the final results of the trial prior to the presentation at BIO at the end of June.
