2014-08-27 03:28:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the episode duration of a herpes labialis recurrence in immunocompromised patients treated with ME-609 or Acyclovir.

Description

The objective of this study was to evaluate the episode duration of a herpes labialis recurrence, following a 5-day treatment with 5-time daily topical administration of ME-609 or acyclovir cream, in immunocompromised adults, 18 years and older.

This interim report summarizes the results for short-term observations, i.e., during the initial study recurrence. A final study report will be prepared when the long-term follow-up is completed.
