Parion Sciences Announces Initiation of Phase 2 Clinical Trial of P-1037 for the Treatment of Cystic Fibrosis
May 6 15
Parion Sciences announced that it has begun enrollment of a phase 2 clinical trial of P-1037 in patients with Cystic Fibrosis. The trial has been named the 'CLEAN-CF' trial which refers to 'Clearing Lungs with ENaC inhibition in Cystic Fibrosis'. The CLEAN-CF study will include CF patients regardless of an individual's genetic mutation. Inhibiting the epithelial sodium channels (ENaC) in the airways with P-1037, an 'ENaC blocker', is expected to re-hydrate the mucus layers, thus restoring airway clearance, improve lung function and, ultimately, reduce exacerbations. P-1037 has demonstrated to be long acting in preclinical models and to have a favorable safety and tolerability profile in the completed Phase 1 studies. Parion expects to enroll approximately 120 patients at 30 sites, most within CFFT's clinical trials national network.
