The New England Journal of Medicine Publishes Study Showing LigoCyte's Norovirus Vaccine Demonstrates Protection Against Illness
Date:12/8/2011

/a> from Baylor College of Medicine.

"The positive results from this rigorous challenge study demonstrate that norovirus gastroenteritis, which can result in severe illness in many people, can be prevented by vaccination," said Donald P. Beeman, LigoCyte's Chief Executive Officer. "We look forward to the results of upcoming clinical studies of the product."

Specifically, data from the study show:

  • In the 77 adults who completed the trial per its original protocol, vaccination decreased the incidence of gastroenteritis due to norovirus from 69.2 percent to 36.8 percent, a 47 percent reduction in illness compared to subjects receiving placebo (95% CI 15.2%-66.6%; p=.006).
  • Subjects receiving vaccine scored lower on a severity of illness scale (p=.011).
  • Immunization with the VLP vaccine increased antibody titers that blocked VLP binding to histo blood group antigens in vitro.
  • Higher functional antibody responses in all subjects correlated with increased protection against illness. A serum BT50 titer of 200 or greater was associated with a 72.2 percent reduction in virus-associated illness (odds ratio of 8.1 (95% CI 2.1-31.2)).
  • Adverse events occurred with similar frequency among vaccine and placebo subjects. The most common symptoms after vaccination included nasal congestion, stuffiness and sneezing.
