Enrollment complete in Inhibitex's FV-100 Phase II clinical trial in shingles patients

Inhibitex, Inc. (Nasdaq: INHX), announced today that it has completed enrollment in a Phase II clinical trial of FV-100 in shingles (herpes zoster) patients. The objectives of the trial are to further evaluate the safety of FV-100 and its potential therapeutic benefit in reducing the severity and duration of shingles-associated pain, the incidence of post herpetic neuralgia (PHN), and the time to heal shingles-related lesions.

The Phase II trial is a well-controlled, double-blind study of 350 shingles patients, aged 50 years and older with shingles-associated pain, who were randomized equally to one of three treatment arms: 200 mg or 400 mg FV-100 administered orally once daily, or 1,000 mg valacyclovir administered orally three times per day. The Company anticipates top-line data from the trial will be available later this quarter.
