#BSGM - BioSig Technologies, Inc. and its subsidiary, ViralClear Pharmaceuticals, Inc. conducted an investor update call on Viral Clear’s #merimepodib drug development program for the treatment of COVID-19.
They announced that, "The size of the ongoing randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2 trial of merimepodib in combination with remdesivir is being increased from 40 to 80 subjects. When the trial was first initiated, it was thought that COVID-19 patients with National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) 8-point ordinal scores of 3 and 4 (i.e., hospitalized patients who require non-invasive ventilation and patients who require high flow oxygen devices and supplemental oxygen, respectively) would have similar outcomes in terms of their disease. However, based on a review of blinded data from the ongoing trial, subjects with scores of 3 and 4 are showing distinct differences. All subjects who were admitted with a score of 4 have had an uneventful course of disease and were rapidly discharged from the hospital due to improvement in clinical condition. The subjects who were admitted with a score of 3 fared differently: one group of subjects improved and were discharged from the hospital and are doing well at long-term follow-up, while others have not improved" (see press release here).
