BiondVax Phase 2b Trial Preliminary Safety Results: The Universal Flu Vaccine Candidate is Safe and Well Tolerated
Date:11/29/2016

NESS ZIONA, Israel, November 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (Nasdaq: BVXV, TASE: BVXV) today announced positive preliminary safety results from its European Phase 2b clinical trial of M-001, its universal flu vaccine candidate.

The trial is designed to compare safety and immunogenicity of M-001 between (1) a control group receiving saline as a placebo and then the standard H5N1 avian pandemic vaccine, and (2) an experimental group receiving BiondVax's M-001 as a primer prior to receiving the same H5N1 pandemic vaccine. As the data is still blinded, the distribution of adverse events between the total of 219 participants who completed the study in both the control and experimental groups is unknown. Only 3 moderate adverse events were considered to be possibly or probably related to the treatment and no related severe adverse events were reported.

Professor Shai Ashkenazi, recently appointed to BiondVax's Scientific Advisory Board, who has guided multiple vaccines through clinical and regulatory approval phases to market, commented that, "M-001 continues to display a remarkable safety profile. It is at least as safe, if not safer, than the current flu vaccines. As we can see in the entire study population, both control and experimental groups, the total number of adverse events is very low and mild."

The research leading to these preliminary results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n°602012. Conducted in collaboration with the EU-sponsored UNISEC consortium, the trial is designed to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of M-001 when used ahead of a pandemic influenza vaccine. BiondVax's European consortium partners are continuing humoral and cellular immune response analysis, with results expected in the coming months.
