San Francisco, Oct. 17, 2017 – Recardio presented today its clinical regenerative therapy program for cardiovascular diseases at the international BIO Investor Forum 2017 in San Francisco.
After completion of the Phase 1 study with dutogliptin and confirmation of the drug’s safety Recardio is now initiating a global, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, safety and efficacy Phase 2 Study of dutogliptin in combination with filgrastim in early recovery post-myocardial infarction.
Roman Schenk, Executive Chairman of Recardio, has presented the clinical development program for this indication and the therapeutic platform for the regenerative medication for patients with a range of cardiovascular diseases.
The investor forum explores investment trends and opportunities in life sciences, with a focus on venture-stage growth and emerging public companies as well as those poised to join the growth “watch list” in 2018. Because the mission is to support industry-wide success, the bio forum strives to present a broad and unbiased view of investment opportunities and companies. It is an important event for the biotechnology field and provides a great opportunity to network and partner up with other companies and delegates from this area. Recardio was invited to present itself after a selection process in the discovery companies track.
