Circassia Achieves Successful Phase II Clinical Results With Toleromune(R) Anti-Allergy Technology
Date:9/10/2008

im to build on this by testing short treatments of several doses in future trials," said Steve Harris, Circassia's CEO. "Our goal for ToleroMune is to provide a range of allergy therapies that effectively and quickly treat the underlying disease while also offering excellent safety. Consequently, these positive clinical results will not only contribute to the development of our cat allergy product, but will also provide the foundations for our other allergy programmes that utilize our ToleroMune technology."

In addition to their potential clinical benefits, Circassia's anti-allergy products would have significant market opportunities. Currently, over 150 million people suffer from allergic rhinitis in the US and Europe and the market for current treatments, despite their limitations, is approximately $12 billion per year. The prevalence of cat-dander allergy is high, with 1-in-6 Americans and nearly 10% of Europeans suffering from the condition. Existing treatments have a number of issues, either providing symptomatic relief only or requiring lengthy supervision by specialist physicians. In contrast, Circassia's ToleroMune technology has the potential to rapidly desensitize sufferers using extremely small sections of allergens (termed T-cell epitopes), which minimizes the potential for adverse reactions.
