+ Watch VICL
on My Watchlist
The Company researches and develops biopharmaceutical products based on its patented DNA delivery technologies for the prevention and treatment of serious or life-threatening diseases.
Vical has concluded yet again that patients in the phase III trial of Allovectin-7 are living longer than expected, resulting in another lengthy delay before topline data will be released. Naturally, Vical bulls see this as a positive, concluding that it is an indicator that patients are living longer in the treatment arm. That sounds like an old story that I heard earlier this year with Keryx and perifosine, with an unfortunate outcome for the bulls. I believe I've seen similar outcomes from prolonged phase III trials previously, but I can't remember one where the bull thesis turned out to be correct. I've seen many phase III clinical trials fail against melanoma. It's a bad cancer to bet against and I won't start with Vical.
