BioMedNewsBreaks – Processa Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: PCSA) Announces Sites for Phase 2B Clinical Trial

March 17, 2021 12:25:18

Processa Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: PCSA), a clinical stage company developing drugs for patients who have unmet medical conditions that require better treatment options to improve a patient’s survival and/or quality of life, today announced that it has selected five U.S. clinical sites to enroll patients with ulcerative necrobiosis lipoidica for the company’s Phase 2B trial. In addition, two to three more clinical sites will be selected for the trial, “A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of PCS499 in Treating Ulcerations in Patients who Have Necrobiosis Lipoidica.” “We have selected five U.S. sites to evaluate this groundbreaking new treatment for ulcerative necrobiosis lipoidica, and we expect to add a few more sites in the next few months including sites outside the U.S.,” said Dr. Sian Bigora, chief development officer at Processa. “Unfortunately for patients with ulcerative necrobiosis lipoidica, open ulcers often take years to naturally heal, if they heal at all, and treatments to close the ulcers in these patients do not exist. Fortunately, our preliminary clinical evaluation of PCS499 in the treatment of patients with ulcerative necrobiosis lipoidica suggests that PCS499 may be effective in closing these ulcers within months of starting treatment.”
