ContraVir Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Key Developments

ContraVir Pharmaceuticals to Initiate Pivotal Phase 3 Study of FV-100 for Prevention of Shingles-Associated PHN

ContraVir Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced the outcome of a recent End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the company's lead drug candidate, FV-100, for the prevention of debilitating shingles-associated pain known as post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN). The FDA has agreed to, with minor modifications, ContraVir's proposed clinical protocol, which is designed as a pivotal Phase 3 study. While antivirals are approved to treat the viral infection underlying shingles, there are currently no approved antiviral therapies for preventing PHN. It remains a major unmet medical need, and ContraVir has been exploring the potential of FV-100 to prevent the severe and long-lasting effects of this condition. The Phase 3 study will build upon prior clinical results for FV-100, including Phase 1 trials as well as a large Phase 2 clinical trial in shingles patients, which demonstrated excellent safety and tolerability for FV-100.
