The license agreement anticipates worldwide commercialization of the OTC product, with an initial product launch in the U.S. anticipated in early 2015.

ViroXis Corporation Completes Clinical Study Using TFS Sandalwood Oil
Feb 18 14
ViroXis Corporation announced that the last patient has completed treatment in the company's 183 patient phase 2 clinical study of an East Indian Sandalwood Oil (EISO) based therapy for HPV/common skin warts. There will now be a three-month follow-up period before the final primary efficacy endpoint is measured. Based on this timeline, the complete data set will be known mid-year. The ElSO-based treatment was very well tolerated, with few adverse events reported. Viroxis plans to meet with the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and look to move toward their objective of conducting Phase 3 approval trials for a prescription HPV/Wart treatment. In the US, the prevalence of HPV/common warts is thought to be as high as 10% in certain populations. The company can also announce that, based on FDA feedback, it can initiate a new placebo controlled, phase 2 clinical study for the treatment of Molluscum contigiosum (MCV) in a pediatric population. MCV is a very prevalent, highly contagious pox virus infection of the skin, mainly affecting children. There are currently no approved prescription treatments for MCV and the disease presents a high clinical and patient burden.
