COVID-19 International Clinical Trial Received Regulatory Approval to Begin Research

Germantown, MD, USA (September 29, 2020) – Amarex Clinical Research, LLC, an NSF company, is supporting their client RevImmune, Inc. in the conduct of a Phase 2 clinical trial testing a treatment for patients with COVID-19. The ILIAD-7 trial is researching if human recombinant interleukin-7 [IL-7] can boost the immune system’s ability to fight coronavirus infection by increasing the numbers and function of white blood cells known as lymphocytes. Patients have been enrolled in the UK (where it has been designated as an Urgent Public Health priority by the UK Chief Medical Officer), France, and now the U.S. Amarex has worked with RevImmune to setup and conduct this international trial.

Dr. Kazem Kazempour, Amarex President & CEO, stated, “This is a patient population with a high unmet medical need. It is rewarding for Amarex to assist with this international effort by obtaining multiple regulatory approvals to conduct this clinical trial, using a product from a European company.”

This is Amarex’s third clinical trial for therapeutic products treating COVID-19 in the US. The other two COVID-19-related trials are testing a monoclonal antibody drug. Amarex has also submitted multiple other drug and device applications to the U.S. FDA and other health regulatory agencies for either treatment or diagnosis of COVID-19 and expects to begin more trials shortly.
