Helix BioPharma Corp. Completes Enrollment in Its Phase II Trial of Topical Interferon Alpha-2b in Patients With Ano-Genital Warts
Date:11/5/2009

hapes in both men and women. Each year in the United States alone, there are over 750,000 new cases of ano-genital warts. Treatment options today are limited by tolerability issues such as pain, irritation and swelling at the treatment site. Treatments may include topical preparations, intralesional injection of interferon Alpha-2b and surgically ablative procedures. Helix believes that more effective and better tolerated treatments are needed.

About Topical Interferon Alpha-2b

Interferon Alpha-2b is an immune system modulator that is active against a variety of HPV-induced lesions. Interferon Alpha-2b is thought to function by triggering an antiviral response within infected cells, by activating certain intracellular enzymes which cause degradation of viral RNA, and by mobilizing the body's natural immune system to destroy the infected cells. Interferon Alpha-2b has been widely used commercially as a treatment for ano-genital warts caused by HPV, but is not generally favored due to the fact that conventional administration requires painful intralesional injection by a medical professional. Furthermore, intralesional injection is restricted to visible lesion administration, while HPV infection is often characterized by both visible and non-visible (i.e. sub-clinical) lesions. Helix's Topical Interferon Alpha-2b utilizes the Company's proprietary Biphasix(TM) drug delivery technology, and is expected to offer a safe, discreet, self-administered, pain-free therapy that can be broadly applied across the entire affected tissue area. Helix anticipates that this will prove highly advantageous not only from a patient compliance perspective by offering a superior tolerability profile, but also from an efficacy standpoint.
