Pevion Mandated Patient Survey Confirms Disease Burden of Recurrent Vulvovaginal Candidiasis (RVVC) and Indicates Public Health Problem

ch treatment.

Pevion is developing a first-in-class therapeutic vaccine, PEV7, to address this public health issue. PEV7 has recently demonstrated safety and immunogenicity in healthy volunteers.

About PEV7 therapeutic Candida vaccine

PEV7 is a clinical-stage therapeutic vaccine being developed for the treatment of recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis (RVVC), a moderate-to-severe disease affecting 7% of all adult women. To date, there is no appropriate treatment for RVVC available. PEV7 is based on a protein antigen, Sap2, a key virulence factor of vulvovaginal candidiasis that is presented on the surface of virosomes. Pevion exclusively in-licensed the Sap2 antigen from its academic partner, the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) in Rome, Italy.

The ongoing PEV7 Phase I study is designed to assess the safety and immunogenicity of the therapeutic vaccine candidate in healthy volunteers. Half of the subjects will receive intramuscular injections, while the other half will receive capsules, administered intravaginally. In total, the study will enroll 48 healthy women of childbearing age. Positive interim results have already been announced.

About Virosomes

Virosomes are a regulatory and market-approved vaccine technology that fulfills carrier and adjuvant functions in one. Essentially, virosomes represent reconstituted empty influenza virus envelopes, devoid of the genetic material of the source virus. As such, virosomes do not replicate and are therefore an ideal combination of carrier plus adjuvant for almost any given antigen, including peptide or protein-derived antigens. The technology enables the use of poorly immunogenic antigens and thereby provides access to new indications and markets. Two virosome-based vaccines (Epaxal® and Inflexal® V, marketed by Crucell Switzerland AG) are licensed in over 40 countries, and more than 70 million doses of these vaccines have been commercially dis
