Cardiovascular BioTherapeutics, Inc. Licenses Phase II Diabetic Wound Healing Data From Cardiovascular BioTherapeutics, Inc.
Published: Nov 30, 2010
CVBT's CEO, Daniel C. Montano, stated that "the Phase II clinical data, in conjunction with additional unpublished pre-clinical data CVBT obtained in the licensing agreement, clearly support our belief that CVBT-141B is a promising wound-healing drug candidate, both in efficacy and safety. While CVBT is presently focused on seeking accelerated approval of CVBT-141B for diabetic wounds, CVBT is also planning to expand the use of this drug candidate to other wound healing indications including venous stasis ulcers, surgical wounds, and burns. Advanced wound management products, those used in the clinical management of wounds (not OTC), represents an estimated $5 billion global market opportunity that is predicted to triple in the next ten years. This is a large and growing medical marketplace opportunity for CVBT, which may at the same time save many lives and lessen the suffering of millions of diabetic patients."
CVBT is a biopharmaceutical company developing drug candidates with FGF-1 as its active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) for diseases characterized by inadequate blood flow to a tissue or organ. The company has FDA-authorization for a Phase II trial to treat severe Coronary Heart Disease (CVBT-141H) and a Phase I trial to treat Peripheral Arterial Disease (CVBT-141C). A Phase III trial to treat dermal wound healing in diabetics (CVBT-141B) is planned to begin in 2011, pending FDA approval.
