PaxVax Announces Interim Data from Phase III Cholera Challenge Study of PXVX0200

PaxVax announced interim data from a Phase III cholera challenge study of its single-dose oral cholera vaccine candidate, PXVX0200. The investors compared the rate of diarrhoea in patients vaccinated with PXVX0200 to the rate in participants who had received a placebo. The vaccine appeared well tolerated. In an interim analysis of participants challenged at 10 days post vaccination with wild type, completely pathogenic cholera bacteria, the rate of diarrhoea was decreased in the vaccine group. 20 of 33 participants who received a placebo experienced moderate-to-severe diarrhoea compared to two of 35 participants who received PXVX0200.
