Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group, Multicenter, Phase 3 Study of the Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of CMX001 for the Prevention of Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Infection in CMV-seropositive (R+) Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Recipients

Further study details as provided by Chimerix:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary efficacy endpoint of this study will be the incidence of clinically significant CMV infection through Week 24 posttransplant [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To describe the effect of CMX001 versus placebo on all cause mortality,non-relapse mortality and on graft failure [ Time Frame: 24 Weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The effect of CMX001 in preventing clinical manifestations associated with non-CMV double-stranded deoxyribonucleic acid (dsDNA) viruses including BKV, HHV-6, AdV and EBV.
