IRVINE, Calif./Kiel, GERMANY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Proteo Inc. (OTCBB: PTEO; WKN: 925981) and its wholly-owned subsidiary Proteo Biotech AG announced today the beginning of patient recruitment for a Phase II clinical trial. In this randomized, placebo-controlled Phase II trial the effect of Elafin on inflammatory parameters will be investigated in patients undergoing esophagectomy for esophagus carcinoma. The trial will be performed under the direction of Prof. Fred Fändrich, Department of General and Thoracic Surgery, University of Kiel: »The removal of the esophagus for esophageal cancer is a very invasive surgical procedure that frequently requires long stays in intensive care units.
