MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Organicell Regenerative Medicine, Inc. (OTCBB: BPSR), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of regenerative therapies, announced today that it is now enrolling patients at an additional site, Larkin Hospital North located in Hialeah, Florida for its Phase I/I clinical trial for the use of its Zofin™ therapeutic in treatment of COVID-19.
This multi-center, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled phase I/II clinical trial is being conducted to investigate the safety and potential efficacy of intravenous infusion of Zofin™ for the treatment of moderate to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) related to COVID-19. The study will be enrolling 20 participants. As of November 17, 2020, several patients have already begun treatment at Larkin Hospital South, located in South Miami, Florida.

“To date, we have successfully enrolled several patients who have begun treatment in this trial, with no reported serious adverse events. We are looking forward to continued progress as we enroll additional patients in the coming weeks. Most of all, we are eager to begin enrollment at Larkin Community Hospital North this week,” said Dr. Luis Mendez-Mulet, Infectious Disease Specialist at Alternative Research Associates and Larkin Community Hospital.
“We are excited to sign on Larkin Hospital North as a second clinical trial site. We look forward to working with their research team as we advance our trial for using Zofin™ to treat moderate to severe acute respiratory syndrome due to COVID-19,” said Dr. Maria Ines Mitrani, Chief Science Officer of Organicell.
