Yesterday, Mesoblast announced that the 60-day results from a randomized controlled trial that included 222 ventilator-dependent COVID-19 patients with moderate to severe ARDS had been published. This trial was halted at the third interim analysis, as previously reported.
- In the pre-specified age group below 65, MESO’s Remestemcel-L reduced mortality by 46% through day 60, but not in those 65 or older.
- In patients under the age of 65, Remestemcel-L has been shown to reduce mortality by 75% and increase days alive when combined with dexamethasone, in comparison with patients on the same dose of dexamethasone.
- A total of 222 patients mechanically ventilated with severe or moderate ARDS across the US participated in the MESO trial.
- Of that group, 217 people were randomized 1:1 to either standard medical care alone or standard medical care plus two intravenous infusions of remestemcel-L at a dose 2 million cells/kg, administered within three days of each other.
During the earlier compassionate use program by Mesoblast (MESO), the same remestemcel-L dosing regimen was used on 11 of 12 patients, all younger than 65 and MESO found 75% of them achieved successful ventilation relief.
