Foamix Ltd. and BioMAS Ltd., announced today that the two companies will jointly develop an innovative product for the topical treatment of human papillomavirus (HPV). The product will be based on BioMAS’ proprietary organotellurium drug, AS101.

According to this agreement, Foamix will develop the topical formulations of AS101; and BioMAS will be responsible for the definitive development of the product. Additional terms were not disclosed.

Genital warts, also termed condyloma, are one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, caused by HPV. Warts appear externally on the genitalia, in the anal area, internally in the upper vagina or cervix, and in the male urethra. Approximately 20 million Americans are currently reported as infected with HPV, and about half a million people become newly infected every year. However, it is estimated that the actual prevalence is even higher. There is currently no satisfactory cure for HPV infection, and current treatments of the lesions and warts include cryosurgery, electrosurgical excision procedure, and conventional surgery. All these suffer from limited efficacy and extremely high rate of recurrence. Topical drugs, such as Imiquimod (Aldara) are partially effective and they are known for their frequent side effects, including burning sensation, pain, inflammation, itching and erosion of the affected area.

Exploratory clinical trials, conducted by BioMAS, have shown that AS101 can be effective in the treatment of condyloma, with minimal side effects and extremely low rate of recurrence, if any. The current project is aimed to develop a final topical formulation of AS101, which will be tested in definitive Phase II and III clinical trials.

Dr. Tami Bar, CEO & President of BioMAS said, "We are very pleased to enter into this partnership with Foamix, which already has a proven track record of successfully marrying their proprietary and innovative topical delivery systems with dermatological and gynecological medications. Together we will develop a cutting-edge medicine to fill an unmet market need for an easy-to-use, effective and none-recurrent treatment for genital warts. Our collaboration with Foamix is an additional step to promote our AS101 towards advanced clinical trials”
"We are delighted to expand our project base in the gynecological field, and to provide an innovative medication to this pharmaceutical sector, together with BioMAS", said Foamix CEO Dr. Dov Tamarkin. "This partnership is a further example of our focused strategy of establishing development collaborations with pharmaceutical companies, side-by-side with our in-house product development”, he noted.

AS101 was approved for clinical trials by the competent authorities in the US (under two FDA approved INDs), Israel, France, and other countries. Hitherto, the AS101 was applied on hundreds of patients, treated by intravenous or topical administration modes.
