BIOVEX: Ventech co-leads a transatlantic $70m financing round

He then also all examined very closely with me and came to the conclusion that the rail had been important because I have a slight malocclusion. Using a replication-defective HSV vector expressing either glial cell derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) or the antiapoptotic peptide bcl-2, it has been shown that direct inoculation of the HSV vector into the substantia nigra can be used to protect rodents from 6-hydroxidopamine-induced degeneration of dopaminergic neurons [50, 51]. Canker Sores: The main cause of 1 or 2 mouth ulcers after age 5. Or am I falling into the trap of thinking My partner and I are not promiscuous and therefore it won’t happen to us? Dendritic cells taken from each individual were either untreated, mixed with recombinant HBS-Ag protein (HBSAg*), infected with the control vector (1764/27-/4-/pR20.5/vhs HBSAg) or infected with the vector expressing HBS-Ag (1764/27-/4-/pR20.5/vhs/HBS-Ag) before mixing with the T cells. When herpes sores occur in places not covered by a condom the condom is of little help, if any.

Generally, pityriasis rosea is a one-off event – once it has gone, the rash doesn’t reappear. The scientific information discussed in this news release related to Amgen’s product candidates is preliminary and investigative. Amgen’s stock price may be affected by actual or perceived market opportunity, competitive position, and success or failure of its products or product candidates. As part of their investigation of Akt’s role in herpes infections, the scientists took laboratory cultures of those human cell types and mixed them for 15 min with four different drugs known to inhibit Akt. The Company plans to submit a second Phase 3 protocol in head and neck cancer to the FDA under the SPA procedure in the middle of the year. Created 10 years ago Ventech invests in innovative companies in both the Information Technology and Life Science sectors.

This news release contains forward-looking statements that are based on Amgen’s current expectations and beliefs and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described. Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science July 1976, Vol. OncovexGFP (backbone virus) and OncovexGALV/CD stocks were supplied by BioVex Inc. The gD2 and gB2 vaccine trial showed no protection against HSV-2 infection beyond the first 5 months after immunization (14). With a deep and broad pipeline of potential new medicines, Amgen remains committed to advancing science to dramatically improve people’s lives. The Phase III study design agreed upon with the FDA follows directly from the study design successfully employed in Phase II, incorporating a response rate based primary endpoint — the rate of objective responses maintained for six months or more.

Based on the strength of the clinical data generated to date, coupled with a benign side effect profile, BioVex believes OncoVEX (GM-CSF) has the potential to become a leading standard of care in the treatment of many solid tumors. Here we report that the mutations in HSV2-gD27 were stable when the virus was passaged in cell culture and during acute infection of mice. The webcast of the conference, as with other selected presentations regarding developments in Amgen’s business given by management at certain investor and medical conferences, can be found on Amgen’s website, www.amgen.com, under Investors. IntroductionHerpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), a linear double-stranded DNA virus of the Herpesviridae family and a major cause of genital ulcer diseases, is transmitted by sexual contact or via the maternal-neonatal relationship. The company developed a virus that will replicate rapidly in rapidly dividing tumour cells but not in normal cells, eventually causing the cancer cells to burst (lyse). The Company recently commenced a Phase 3 study in metastatic melanoma (the OPTiM study) following achieving an unprecedented proportion of durable complete remissions in a Phase 2 study using OncoVEX GM-CSF as a stand alone therapy.

81% had stage IV disease. Of the 17 Stage III/IVA (N1-3) patients treated, 16 had N2 or N3 disease. As of June 2010, more than half of the planned recruitment of 360 patients had been enrolled. Overall, 20% of patients ultimately achieved a complete response and 28% of patients achieved an overall objective response (complete response or partial response).
