Revive Therapeutics Provides Update on Phase 3 Clinical Trial for Bucillamine in COVID-19The Company submitted request to the FDA to determine potential new clinical endpoints for FDA consideration for EUA
TORONTO, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Revive Therapeutics Ltd. (“Revive” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: RVVTF) (CSE: RVV) (FRANKFURT:31R), a specialty life sciences company focused on the research and development of therapeutics for medical needs and rare disorders, is pleased to provide an update on the Company’s U.S. Food & Drug Administration (“FDA”) Phase 3 clinical trial (the “Study”) (NCT04504734) to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Bucillamine, an oral drug with anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, in patients with mild to moderate COVID-19.
The Company has submitted a request to the FDA to determine and agree on the Study’s potential new primary efficacy endpoints, including the rate of sustained clinical resolution of symptoms of COVID-19 which addresses the shift in COVID-19 clinical outcome observed over the course of the pandemic, and, therefore, to have more meaningful study endpoints for the FDA to consider for potential Emergency Use Authorization. The Company expects to obtain FDA agreement on the potential new primary efficacy endpoints in June 2022. The Company believes that with the Omicron variant, including the BA.2 variant, being the dominant strain over the Delta variant and COVID-19 hospitalizations in the U.S. are in the decline, there is an urgent unmet need to treat symptom resolutions in addition to preventing hospitalizations. In addition, the Data Safety and Monitoring Board are scheduled to meet in June 2022 to evaluate the interim clinical and safety data and may make recommendation on continuing the Study or advise on halting the Study early due to positive efficacy based on other clinical outcomes such as the rate of sustained clinical resolution of symptoms of COVID-19.
The Company is not making any express or implied claims that its product has the ability to eliminate or cure COVID-19 (SARS-2 Coronavirus) at this time.
