ProMetic Life Sciences has announced positive interim results from its open label phase II clinical trial in patients suffering from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). In addition to demonstrating that PBI-4050 is safe and well-tolerated in patients suffering from IPF, the objective of this study was to provide early evidence of clinical benefits of PBI-4050 treatment whether used alone or in addition to either nintedanib or pirfenidone. Forty patients are enrolled in the study in 6 sites across Canada. At this time, the corporation is reporting on the first 30 patients that have completed their 12 weeks of treatment.
