Bavarian Nordic Reports Successful Safety Data From Phase II Study With IMVAMUNE(R)
Date:11/6/2008

KVISTGARD, Denmark, November 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bavarian Nordic has completed a clinical safety report from a large Phase II study with IMVAMUNE(R) in HIV infected subjects that confirms the excellent safety profile of IMVAMUNE(R). Within the next few days the safety report of this study will be submitted to the FDA and this will trigger a USD 25 million milestone payment under the RFP-3 contract. The clinical safety report constitutes a major part of the data package that will be used to potentially support the use of IMVAMUNE(R) in a declared emergency.

In support of using IMVAMUNE(R) as a smallpox vaccine in individuals otherwise contraindicated to receive conventional vaccinia vaccines, Bavarian Nordic has performed a large Phase II study in HIV infected subjects with CD4 counts between 200 and 750 cells/microl to compare the safety to healthy subjects.

The safety report from this study, which represents an essential part of the EUA data package, includes safety data from over 300 HIV infected and 86 healthy subjects, all of whom had no history of prior smallpox vaccination. The low number of adverse events confirmed the favourable safety profile of IMVAMUNE(R) in vaccinia-naive HIV infected subjects with varying degrees of immune suppression. Indeed, there was no difference in adverse events between the healthy and HIV infected subjects, even in the most immune compromised patients (CD4 counts greater than or equal to 200-350 cells/microl). IMVAMUNE(R) has now been tested in more than 2,200 people in 11 completed or on-going clinical studies, which includes a large proportion (more than 750) of immune-compromised people i.e. HIV infected or diagnosed with Atopic Dermatitis (AD) who are excluded from vaccination with traditional smallpox vaccines.

The complete data set from this trial is expected to be reported in the second half of 2009. The final report will include data on immunogenicity as well as long-term (6-month) safe
