ViroPharma Announces Presentation of Data from Non-Toxigenic Clostridium difficile (VP20621) Phase 1 Study
Date:9/15/2010

. Our goal with VP20621 is to provide a novel, non antibiotic therapy to protect patients from colonization by virulent toxin producing bacteria until their normal, protective GI flora returns, thereby significantly reducing the incidence of recurrent disease for patients with CDI."

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.  The most common side effects observed following multiple doses of VP20621 were mild loose or watery stools on a single study day that resolved despite continued dosing, mild burning sensation on the tongue, and mild dyspepsia.
