ASP4070TM Vaccine Key Features
- ASP4070 is a vaccine intended to treat patients with rhino-conjunctivitis caused by allergic reaction to red cedar pollen
- First immunotherapy to treat allergy that does not expose patient to free allergen
- ITI’s LAMP-vax vaccine allergy therapy is expected to require only 4 shots, not 100 or more often required for traditional, extract-based immunotherapy
This vaccine has been designed and validated in two species and is now being tested in humans. ITI has completed Phase 1A and 1B clinical trials for ASP4070, a LAMP-based vaccine for Japanese red cedar. The clinical results in allergic and non-allergic Japanese patients were favorable and strongly support further development of ASP4070.
