RhoVac AB participates in a discussion meeting with the European Medicines Agency
RhoVac AB (publ) ("RhoVac") announced today, 25th April 2018, that the company has received an invitation to meet with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to further discuss a phase IIb clinical trial.
RhoVac initiated a Scientific Advice procedure with EMA immediately after completion of a pre-submission meeting end of February 2018; the procedure was originally estimated to be completed end of April 2018. Following invitation to participate at the EMA’s Scientific Advice Working Party's meeting in London the entire procedure is, according to standard regulatory procedures, extended by approximately one month and completion is now estimated to be at the end of May 2018.
Invitation to a discussion meeting with the Working Party is not standard in a Scientific Advice procedure; however, EMA can provide this opportunity to a company to ensure that the development strategy of the company is fully understood and thereby to ensure that the most accurate advice is provided to the company for the design of the coming clinical phase IIb study.
Comments from RhoVac´s CEO, Anders Ljungqvist
-We are delighted for the opportunity to further discuss RhoVac's development project for the coming phase IIb study with the relevant experts at EMA. The company's drug candidate RV001 aims to target treatment of metastatic cancer in an earlier phase of disease progression than existing treatments applied today. Thus, it is important that the regulatory authorities and RhoVac have a common understanding of the treatment concept developed. It is valuable for the continuation of the project that RhoVac will be able to participate in this discussion meeting with several of EMA's clinical phase IIb and III experts.
