Biopharmaceutical company Evofem Biosciences Inc (NASDAQ:EVFM) reported on Friday that it has dosed the last patient under its Phase 2b AMPREVENCE clinical trial evaluating its lead product candidate Amphora for the prevention of chlamydia
and gonorrhea in women.
The research, published in the prestigious UK journal The Lancet Global Health, reports that chlamydia
infection appears to be responsible for a substantial proportion of infertility cases among women in this part of the world.
In the study published Thursday in The Lancet Infectious Diseases, researchers compared two different formulations of the vaccine alongside a placebo jab in 35 women who were not infected with chlamydia
. Every single woman who got the vaccine showed an immune response but none of the women who got the placebo exhibited such a response.
Those who were given injections of two possible vaccines developed antibodies to the chlamydia
bacteria, but a lot more testing is needed before the vaccine would be ready for the public, the researchers added.
