Late October 2014, Onxeo reported positive preliminary top-line results of the large international Phase II clinical trial with Validive® in the prevention of oral mucositis in patients undergoing head and neck cancer treatment. They showed a reduction in the incidence of severe oral mucositis with a very good safety. Based on these data, the trial’s Board of experts has confirmed the interest of pursuing the development of Validive® with the initiation of a Phase III trial to evaluate the product’s efficacy. The company plans to initiate this trial in 2015.
“We are very pleased to have this presentation at the ASCO meeting, an opportunity to share the phase II clinical trial results of Validive® with the scientific community. The selection of our abstract emphasizes the expertise of our clinical development team and the quality of the data. It also confirms the interest of a key product of our orphan oncology portfolio that meets an unmet medical need in an invalidating pathology”, comments Judith Greciet, CEO of Onxeo.
