LONDON, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - Daval International Limited, a UK private
company, announces MHRA and IRB (Ethics Committee) approval of a London based
Phase IIB trial of AIMSPRO(R), its hyperimmune caprine serum derivative.
This double-blind placebo-controlled cross-over study will seek to detect
a beneficial effect on bladder function in patients with Secondary Progressive
Multiple Sclerosis, following open-label observations over several years in a
number of informed consent, "compassionate basis" patients.
AIMSPRO has an "export only" listing on the Australian Registry of
Therapeutic Goods and a TGA Orphan Status Designation for the treatment of
Krabbe's disease. An IND application is being lodged for a further MS trial in
the United States.
AIMSPRO is a frozen medication, given as a 1ml sub-cutaneous injection
every 4 days. It is believed to have a pronounced and sustained
anti-inflammatory action with an associated, novel effect of lowering sodium
channel triggering voltages in nerve fibres. MHRA applications for two further
clinical trials are to be lodged within the next 3 months.
Daval International Ltd. has recently been accepted as a member of the
Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry. "APBI"
