The company reports it is advancing DENVax into the second stage of this clinical trial based on the review and the recommendation of the DSMB, an independent data and safety monitoring board.

In the second stage of the study, DENVax will be tested for safety and immunogenicity in approximately 200 additional children aged 18 months to 11 years.

“The completion of the first stage of this Phase 2 study is an important milestone for Inviragen, as it represents the first comprehensive safety evaluation of the vaccine in individuals of various ages who live in dengue endemic areas,” said Dr.Dan Stinchcomb, CEO of Inviragen. “The DSMB determined that the first dose of the vaccine is well tolerated in adults, adolescents and children,some of whom were pre‐exposed to dengue viruses.”
