AFFiRiS: Milestone Reached in Clinical Trial of Alzheimer's Vaccine
Date:7/16/2008

VIENNA, Austria, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- In the clinical phase I trial AFF001, AFFiRiS GmbH has now recruited the 24 Alzheimer patients planned for this trial. The trial aims to investigate the tolerability and safety of an innovative Alzheimer's vaccine (AFFITOPE AD01). In the trial, all patients have now been vaccinated at least once and have so far tolerated the vaccine extremely well. The treatment provides for four vaccinations administered at monthly intervals and is due to be fully completed by this October. The vaccine's tolerability can then be conclusively evaluated. So far the results indicate good tolerability for this Alzheimer's vaccine from AFFiRiS GmbH. It is on this basis that recruitment of further patients has already begun for the clinical trial of a second Alzheimer's vaccine by AFFiRiS.

Vienna-based AFFiRiS GmbH has announced the successful completion of patient recruitment for clinical phase I testing of its Alzheimer's vaccine AD01. The vaccine is being administered at the Vienna General Hospital (AKH) to 24 Alzheimer's patients at a mild to moderate stage of the disease. The patients are being vaccinated a total of four times over a three-month period. During this time, and over a further two months, the safety and tolerability of the vaccine is being investigated. A professional care network with the highest medical standards ensures the patients' health and well-being.

Commenting on the planned progression of the trial, Dr. Walter Schmidt, CEO of AFFiRiS GmbH says: "We have now treated the maximum number of patients for the first time. After the end of the trial in a few months' time, we will know whether the impression so far of our vaccine's good tolerability is confirmed. As patient interest in the last few months has grown significantly, we are delighted that we are already in a position to offer participation in clinical testing of our second Alzheimer's vaccine, AFFITOPE AD02. The support from our largest investo
