Disseminated Adenovirus Infection Eradicated in a Pediatric Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Recipient Who Received Chimerix's Lead Antiviral CMX001
Date:2/24/2011

DURHAM, N.C., Feb. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Chimerix, Inc., a pharmaceutical company developing orally-available antiviral therapeutics, today announced the publication of the first reported case in which adenovirus (AdV) infection was successfully eradicated following treatment with its broad-spectrum antiviral drug, CMX001.  Oral CMX001 was administered under an Emergency Investigational New Drug Application (EIND) to a severely immunocompromised pediatric stem cell patient following the patient's failure to respond to prior treatment with intravenous cidofovir.  Data from this case report were published in the February edition of the Journal of Clinical Virology.

"Cases such as this highlight the life-saving potential of CMX001 to successfully and safely resolve severe viral infections.  Data generated from Chimerix's clinical studies and numerous EIND cases in which CMX001 has been used to combat the full spectrum of double-stranded DNA viruses have greatly informed our late-stage clinical development plans," said Wendy Painter, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Chimerix.  "We see a unique opportunity to develop this drug for the prevention and treatment of viral infections that are frequently fatal to transplant patients.  In particular, the lack of viable treatment options in the pediatric patient population must be rapidly addressed and we are preparing to initiate a Phase 2 clinical study in pediatric and adult transplant patients with adenovirus infections."

CMX001 is being developed by Chimerix for dual-use as a broad-spectrum antiviral for the treatment of life-threatening viral infections in immunocompromised patients and as a medical countermeasure in the event of a smallpox release.  Chimerix is currently conducting a Phase 2 dose-defining clinical study of CMX001 in immunocompromised hematopoietic stem cell transplant patients at risk of life-threatening infection with cytomegalovirus.  Chimerix is init
