Chimerix to Present at Infocast's 9th Annual Biodefense Vaccines & Therapeutics Conference
Date:7/20/2011

ses. 250 patients have received CMX001 under Emergency Investigational New Drug Applications (EINDs), including for treatment of orthopox viruses. A significant number of the individuals receiving CMX001 in human testing have been immunocompromised as a result of disease or immunosuppressing therapies associated with stem cell or solid organ transplantation.

Clinical studies of CMX001 include an ongoing Phase 2 study for the prevention/control of cytomegalovirus (a herpes virus) in adult hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients (CMX001-201); a Phase 2 study for the treatment of adenovirus infection in pediatric and adult hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients (AdV HALT Trial/CMX001-202); and an Open-Label Study (CMX001-350) for the treatment of dsDNA viral infections. The open-label study builds on Chimerix's extensive experience working with over 150 clinicians at over 80 leading institutions in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Israel who have sought CMX001 under EINDs for the treatment of immunocompromised patients.

CMX001 and Smallpox Antiviral Development

CMX001 is a leading antiviral candidate as a medical countermeasure against a smallpox release, including the potential to provide an important therapeutic option for the 80 million people in the U.S. currently estimated to be immunocompromised and thus not candidates to receive a smallpox vaccine. Chimerix has received federal funding for the development of CMX001 as a medical countermeasure against smallpox from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases under Grant No. UO1-AI057233 and from the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, Office of the Secretary, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHSO100201100013C.
