ID Biomedical has delayed a study on an experimental treatment for strep after the FDA requested more information on the therapy. ID Biomedical added that Canadian regulators have approved a test of a new nasal flu vaccine. "At this time, ID Biomedical is not able to precisely predict how long it may take to generate this data (for StreptAvax) and to what extent additional testing and follow up in adults may be required before obtaining approval to conduct studies in children," the company said in a statement. StreptAvax is designed to fight the bacterium that causes strep throat.
