This study aims to prove that, by a one-time topical spray on the cervix, AV2-DM is an effective antiviral in reducing on short term (3 months) the human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.

  • Primary endpoint: significant drop in viral load AV2-DM versus placebo
  • Secondary endpoint:the number of patients with adverse events

Condition Intervention Phase
Genital Human Papilloma Virus Infection
Drug: topical application cervical spray
Drug: topical spray on the cervix
Procedure: cervical swab with Cervex-Brush-Combi at T0
Procedure: cervical swab with Cervex-Brush-Combi at T1
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Single Center, Placebo Controlled, Double-Blind Study to the Treatment of HPV Infected Cervix With AV2 Antiviral Spray and Assessment of Viral Load

Further study details as provided by Cesa Projects International:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy comparison number of patients with drop (min 2 Log units) in HPV specific viral load AV2-DM versus placebo [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
