NEW YORK and LONDON, June 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Celsus Therapeutics Plc (Nasdaq:CLTX), an emerging growth, development-stage biotech company, has received approval from the Israeli Ministry of Health to conduct a Phase II trial of MRX-6 cream 2% in pediatric patients with atopic dermatitis.

The Company plans to conduct the study in five to six centers in Israel as well as Argentina, enrolling 80 pediatric patients ranging in age from two to 17 years.

The trial will enroll patients into a four-week double-blind period, followed by a four-week open label extension for those patients who wish to continue in the trial. Results from this trial are expected in the fourth quarter of 2014.
