Is Aphton really actively in US clinicals? The last announcement said they applied to the FDA to start clinicals. Also, you said that they should probably be hitting the market in a year. What is your source for that information? They do have competition for the market from AVII. If they continue to move at a snails pace, they will miss their opportunity!!! What happened to the asian alliance?
You're right, they've only "applied" to the FDA. I'm just assuming the IND will be accepted and they will begin trials in the US next year. If the trials take a year or so, then wouldn't they be ready to market? Re: the Asian alliance - don't know - maybe they didn't like the terms of the agreement or maybe they're still working on it. Hopefully they'll have more announcements in the coming months.
