LEIDEN - The Netherlands, December 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
HAL Allergy B.V. today announced that it has successfully completed patient enrollment in its Phase II trial with SUBLIVAC® FIX Phleum pratense. This combined dose tolerability and dose range finding study will characterize the dose-response relationship of SUBLIVAC® FIX Phleum pratense in order to support the optimal dose in terms of clinical efficacy and safety for further investigation in Phase III studies.
This multi-centre, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study in patients with persistent allergic rhinitis / rhinoconjunctivitis was initiated in September 2012 and will be completed in May 2013. More than 250 patients were included in 23 clinical sites in Germany and Poland. The completion of enrollment is an important milestone in the clinical development program of SUBLIVAC® FIX Phleum pratense.
"Together with the ongoing studies with PURETHAL® Mites and SUBLIVAC® FIX Birch this is the third dose range finding study within a period of one year for which we have completed patient enrollment. All three studies are part of our state-of-the-art clinical trial program to support final licensure of the products under the enactment of the German Regulation on Therapy Allergens (i.e., "Therapieallergene-Verordnung"). The on time patient enrollment for all three studies demonstrates that we are fully committed and capable to meet the goals of this program. Results will be available mid-2013, subsequently, the first Phase III pivotal trials will be initiated in 2014" says Harry Flore, CEO of HAL Allergy.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
