nd fractured a hip; death was attributed to renal failure and pulmonary sepsis.

"I am thrilled by the data from this Phase 2 study of VP20621, which confirm the therapeutic potential of non-toxigenic C. difficile," commented Dale Gerding , MD, Professor of Medicine at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and research physician at the Hines VA Hospital. "For the first time, we have been able to mimic the protective effect we have inferred from observing natural colonization of patients with non-toxigenic strains of C. difficile. As a clinician on the front lines of CDI research, I find these data to be extremely promising and suggestive of a novel approach to prevention of not only disease recurrence, but primary CDI as well."

Next steps
ViroPharma will complete the evaluation of these Phase 2 data which will help determine a future development pathway. The company reminds its investors that VP20621 was flagged as a non core asset at its September investor event. With these compelling Phase 2 clinical results, we will seek a partner to complete the development and commercialization of the asset.

About VP20621
Antibiotics including those used to treat acute C. difficile infection (CDI) disrupt the normal gastrointestinal flora which renders individuals susceptible to C. difficile colonization. Orally-dosed liquid VP20621 utilizes non-toxigenic spore-based technology as a potential means of recolonization and protection. The goal of VP20621 dosing following antibiotic exposure is to colonize with this non-toxigenic strain of C. difficile and to prevent colonization by toxigenic strains, thereby preventing disease. VP20621 may have therapeutic utility in the prevention of recurrence following treatment of acute CDI and in the primary prevention of CDI. ViroPharma acquired VP20621 in 2006, through a licensing agreement with Dr.
