Immunitor V5

Has anyone heard of Immunitor V5?  There seems to be little information about it, but they have some efficacy data that shows promise.

Immunitor is a publicly listed company in the middle of some sort of takeover, so it is often in the news. They claim to have a therapeutic vaccine V5 for Hepatitis B. As stefano170669 said, they never published in a respectable journal. It is a very strange company.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 17, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Immune Network Ltd. (Pink Sheets:IMMFF), advises progress is being made toward the acquisition of Immunitor Inc., a Canadian corporation with global rights to V-5 Immunitor (known as V5), with the establishment of basic terms. In addition, Immune Network's Board of Directors and its senior management team have been expanded and new corporate professionals have been appointed.

All potential clinical indications are included in the Immunitor marketing rights. V5 has been the subject of numerous clinical trials, most of which are published. V5 effects include significant improvement of clinical outcomes for hepatitis B treatment, hepatitis C treatment, and recently, for tuberculosis treatment, including drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB and XDR-TB) and TB and HIV co-infection. V5 is an orally delivered formulation, manufactured as a simple tablet. It has been postulated that V5 effects on hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and tuberculosis is dependent upon an immunomodulatory effect of the product.  There have been no adverse effects noted in clinical trials of V5 conducted to date.

I am not stef2011, but I agree with him. Please look through the list of journals, none of them is well-known. Also I doubt if the journals have any peer-review system.

Just my opinion, happy to be proven wrong.
