Richard J. Kang, President and Chief Executive Officer of NeuroBo stated,
ANA001, a patented oral niclosamide formulation in research as a therapy for patients with mild to severe COVID-19, continues to progress in the Phase 2/3 clinical study during the second quarter. While registration in the Phase 2 section of the trial in the United States had been slow at first, the dissemination of the Delta variation has changed that pattern, and enrollment has recently increased. As a result, the Phase 2 phase of the trial is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter. In the following months, they expect a number of value-creating breakthroughs with their COVID-19 programmes.
