Published: Aug 11, 2017

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Capricor Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAPR) today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017 and provided an update on its business.

"In April, we reported positive interim results from our ongoing HOPE-Duchenne clinical trial which have ignited the interest of patients, advocates and thought leaders who constitute the greater Duchenne muscular dystrophy community. These results are particularly notable given the patients' advanced disease as approximately 70% of trial participants were wheelchair-dependent at entry," said Linda Marbán, Ph.D., president and CEO of Capricor. "A key finding in HOPE-Duchenne was that, as compared to usual care controls, patients treated with CAP-1002 demonstrated improvement in skeletal muscle function according to the Performance of the Upper Limb (PUL) test, a validated instrument."
