“Efficacy and Safety of Treatment with an Anti-M2e Monoclonal Antibody in Experimental Human Influenza” describes the methods, results and conclusions of the Phase 2a trial of TCN-032, a human mAb targeting a conserved epitope on M2e, in experimental human influenza. The data presented in the publication support that “TCN-032 may provide immediate immunity and therapeutic benefit in influenza A infection, with no apparent emergence of resistant virus. TCN-032 was safe with no evidence of immune exacerbation based on serum cytokine expression.” For access to the abstract and full publication, please visit:
