MetrioPharm Investor Relations News QI 2018
Greetings from Dr. Wolfgang Brysch, CEO of MetrioPharm AG
These are eventful days at MetrioPharm: Our current Phase II study was approved by the authorities at the end of 2017/beginning of 2018 and started on schedule a few weeks ago. In this larger clinical trial, we are testing the safety and efficacy of MP1032 in patients with psoriasis. Our goal is to confirm the good data from the Phase IIa exploratory study over a longer period of time and to determine the optimal dosing for MP1032.
MetrioPharm is following the progress of the study with great interest and we will keep you informed of all important progress: We expect first results (Topline Data) at the beginning of 2019.
On behalf of the entire team, I wish you all the best and relaxing days for the coming Easter season.
Dr. Wolfgang Brysch
Chief Executive Officer
First Patient First Dose
On March 6, 2018, the first patient in MetrioPharm's current Phase II clinical study was dosed. The Phase II study is being conducted in Germany and Poland as a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, twice-daily oral trial over 12 weeks. Psoriasis patients aged 18 to 70 years receive either MP1032 (150 mg or 300 mg) or placebo. Around 14 study centres in Germany and Poland will participate in this study. The primary objective is to evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of MP1032 at different doses.
