The Corporation’s unaudited fiscal Q2 2018 condensed interim consolidated financial statements and MD&A are available on SEDAR.
Dan Legault, Antibe’s CEO, commented, “Our most recently completed fiscal quarter represented a significant milestone for Antibe as our lead drug, ATB-346, commenced its key Phase 2b clinical study to demonstrate unequivocal superiority in GI safety. We are pleased to report that the study is progressing well, with now nearly 100 subjects enrolled. We remain on track for a data read-out in Q1 2018. Meanwhile, Citagenix continues to advance its initiatives to support its global growth strategy which we expect will positively impact performance in 2018.”
Development Activities for ATB-346 Progressing Well
Antibe continues to focus its development efforts on ATB-346, its lead drug that targets the global need for a safer drug for chronic pain and inflammation. The Company’s on-going Phase 2b, double-blind GI safety study for ATB-346 is progressing well and remains on schedule. As of today, 97 subjects have been enrolled (of the total 240 subjects) and the Company continues to expect a data read-out in Q1 2018 as previously disclosed.
In addition, Antibe has engaged a leading metabolism clinical research organization (“CRO”) to conduct studies to further characterize the metabolic profile of ATB-346. The Company anticipates that these metabolism studies will commence in January 2018.
