Posted in Awards & Appointments on 14th Aug 2015

ACNRJA15-30aThe Swedish biotechnology company NeuroVive Pharmaceutical recently announced that the ongoing clinical Phase IIa study for traumatic brain injury with the company’s drug candidate NeuroSTAT® passed a safety evaluation and is moving on to the higher dosage group with the last 10 of 20 patients. The interim analysis included an evaluation of blood concentrations of cyclosporin A (the active substance in NeuroSTAT®) and changes in intracranial pressure and blood samples collected to analyze possible organ injury.

“We’ve now obtained important safety data on the lower dose of NeuroSTAT® for treating patients with traumatic brain injury and can now move on to treat patients with the higher dose. This means that the study has reached an important milestone in the clinical trial program of NeuroSTAT®,” commented NeuroVive’s CEO Mikael Brönnegård.
