Commenting on the trial update, Tim McCarthy, Chairman of ImmuPharma Plc said: “We are pleased to provide a further update of our pivotal Phase III study of Lupuzor™ in Lupus showing that approximately a quarter of the patients have now completed the full 12 months of the trial and almost all the patients have completed six months. As the trial continues to progress, we are delighted to observe the continuation of our robust safety record, as Lupuzor™ is being administered to greater numbers of patients over a longer period of time.
With the study on track to report top line results in Q1 2018, we look forward to providing shareholders with further updates on this pivotal Phase III study as it progresses through the second half of 2017.
