The study showed no difference between the treatment and placebo groups for the key safety measures, including coagulation markers and adverse events. In-stent plaque area and lumen area, as assessed by intravascular ultrasound at six months, were similar for both groups. VT-111 demonstrated no drug-related adverse events and no neutralizing antibodies (low immunogenicity) in the patient population.

"This drug candidate is Viron's first successful adaptation of a viral anti-inflammatory protein into a therapeutic for the treatment of human disease, validating Viron's unique approach and our proprietary PROSPECT(TM) technology, a platform for the discovery of new immune-modulating protein therapeutics from pathogens," said James Rae, Chief Executive Officer of Viron Therapeutics. "To complement these studies in patients with vascular disease, we plan to initiate a clinical trial for VT-111 in solid organ transplantation, an area with a well-defined patient population where novel anti-inflammatory drugs have significant potential to address an unmet medical need. Our drug has demonstrated remarkable efficacy in preclinical proof-of-concept studies to support this indication."

The presentation was entitled "Viral Anti-inflammatory Treatment of Unstable Coronary Syndromes: The VT-111 Acute Coronary Syndrome Trial". A copy of Dr. Tardif's presentation is available on Viron's website, www.vironinc.
