TORONTO, Jan. 18, 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.
A total of 701 subjects have been dosed to date in the Study. The Company, in collaboration with Delta Health, has initiated the enrollment activities in Turkey at MLP Care, the largest hospital group in Turkey, and Istinye University with access to 30 research sites and over 6000 in-patient hospital beds.
The Study’s expansion into Turkey complements the Company’s global commercialization plan for Bucillamine as a potential treatment for mild to moderate COVID-19. As previously reported, in light of Phase 3 clinical studies and FDA approvals of oral antiviral treatments by Pfizer and Merck, it was evident that to improve the Study’s outcome, a diversified patient population from different countries is important to support future global regulatory submissions. In addition, a diversified subject population supports ongoing discussions with pharmaceutical companies in Turkey and international markets.
The Company is on-track to complete study enrollment in Q1-2022. Also, the Company is preparing its regulatory package for submission to the FDA and international regulatory authorities for drug approvals thereafter.
Michael Frank, CEO of the Company commented, “We are now in the final stages in our Phase 3 study and we are focused on completing enrollment, preparing the regulatory packages for the FDA and international health authorities, and negotiating manufacturing and marketing agreements with pharmaceutical companies for commercialization.”
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.
