ContraVir Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Enrolls First Patient in Pivotal Phase 3 Study of FV-100 for Treatment of Shingles and Shingles-Associated Pain

ContraVir Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the first patient has been enrolled in the company's pivotal Phase 3 clinical study, study 007, of FV-100 to prevent the debilitating shingles-associated pain known as post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN). The first patient in the study enrolled at Center for Clinical Studies in Houston, Texas. The study will build upon prior clinical results for FV-100, including Phase 1 trials and a large Phase 2 clinical trial in shingles patients, which demonstrated favorable safety and tolerability for FV-100. The pivotal study 007 will compare FV-100 to valacyclovir (Valtrex) with the reduction in the incidence of shingles-associated pain, PHN, as a primary endpoint. It is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, comparative study in up to 200 centers in the U.S. The study is comprised of three arms: FV-100 400mg QD, FV-100 400mg BID, and valacyclovir 1000mg TID. Approximately 825 patients are expected to be analyzed for a seven-day treatment period, and follow up through day 120. FV-100 is a fast-acting, low-dose, oral antiviral therapy for treatment of herpes zoster, or shingles. In addition to its potent antiviral activity, FV-100 has demonstrated an ability to reduce the incidence and severity of debilitating shingles-associated pain, known as post-herpetic neuralgia, or PHN. In Phase 2 trials, FV-100 demonstrated a clinically meaningful 37% reduction in the incidence of PHN versus valacyclovir (Valtrex), and favorable safety and tolerability.
