Novus Therapeutics Provides Update on OP0201
– Phase 2a study C-006 enrollment to be completed in 1Q 2020; data expected in 2Q 2020 –
“We look forward to completing the first OP0201 clinical trial in pediatric patients with acute otitis media,” said
The amended C-006 study is designed to detect a 25% difference between treatment groups in at least 1 of the 2 primary efficacy endpoints, assuming 40% of placebo-treated patients have no bulging tympanic membrane at the visit that occurs between days 4-6 (visit 2), and 30% of placebo-treated patients have no middle ear effusion at the visit that occurs between days 12-14 (visit 3).
The company’s current cash, including expected proceeds from the exercise of warrants, is enough to support operations into 4Q 2020.
