Healthcare Company Update : CorMedix Inc (NYSEMKT:CRMD)

CorMedix Inc (NYSEMKT:CRMD) (TREND ANALYSIS) expects to begin Phase 3 study for Neutrolin in Q4. CorMedix announced an update to its previously announced strategic transaction process and that it expects to initiate its first Phase 3 study for its lead product Neutrolin in the fourth quarter. The Phase 3 clinical trial is designed to be a U.S. multi-center, randomized, controlled study comparing Neutrolin to heparin in an estimated 633 patients in hemodialysis being monitored for catheter related bloodstream infections. Dr. Michael Allon, Professor, Department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology, University of Alabama, Birmingham will serve as the Study Chair. “Our discussions with the FDA and key opinion leaders have made clear that relatively high rates of infection continue to occur in hemodialysis, ICU/CCU and oncology patients who require central venous catheters. Our research and available data indicate that Neutrolin may be able to address this problem, and we are pleased to advance this important clinical study,” said Antony Pfaffle M.D., Chief Scientific Officer. As part of its previously announced strategic transaction process, the Company has engaged in a robust process with its financial advisor Evercore Partners. As a result, the Company announces that while the Company moves forward with the announced clinical trial it expects to continue to pursue product development and commercialization opportunities, rather than pursuing a possible sale of the company today.
