Genticel completes patient recruitment for ProCervix trial
Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Genticel has completed the recruitment of all patients participating in its phase one clinical trial with a liquid formulation of ProCervix, its candidate therapeutic HPV vaccine designed for adult women already infected with human papillomavirus (HPV) genotype 16 or 18.
The trial takes place at the Centre for the Evaluation of Vaccinations in the Vaccine & Infectious Disease Institute of the University of Antwerp, under the direction of professor Pierre Van Damme. The key objectives are to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of ProCervix. In addition, Belgium’s Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products (FAMHP) has recently also approved Genticel’s request to extend the phase I trial to confirm the safety of a lyophilized formulation of ProCervix.
