IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Immunis, Inc., a private biotech company developing a novel cellular secretome therapy for age and disease-related immune decline, is thrilled to announce that it has received unanimous approval from the Data Safety and Monitoring Board (DSMB) to proceed enrolling the next cohort of patients for its Phase 1/2a clinical trial.
The DSMB is comprised of independent experts in the fields of medicine, investigational drug safety, and ethical patient management who have carefully reviewed the safety and tolerability data from our initial patient cohort. They have concluded that IMMUNA causes no severe adverse events when administered intramuscularly in patients with muscle atrophy associated with knee osteoarthritis. Based on their thorough evaluation and recommendation, the board has granted Immunis the green light to advance to the next phase of our clinical trial, which increases the concentration of IMMUNA administered in patients.
“The DSMB conducts a rigorous evaluation of all trial data after each cohort of participants complete treatment, so to receive unanimous approval from the DSMB on the first cohort is encouraging,” remarks Immunis’ Director of Medical Affairs Erin Curry, PA, MPH. “We are enthusiastic about the potential of IMMUNA to positively transform the lives of elderly patients with muscle atrophy. With the DSMB’s support, we are now poised to move forward confidently to further evaluate the safety and efficacy of IMMUNA at higher dosage levels.”
Immunis will continue to collaborate closely with regulatory authorities and medical experts to ensure the thorough evaluation of IMMUNA’s potential risks and benefits. The Immunis team is eager to continue its mission of bringing novel treatment options to patients and their families.
