Antibe Therapeutics Inc. has received Health Canada's approval to initiate the pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) study of otenaproxesul's faster-absorbing formulation for acute pain. Set to commence in October, the purpose of the study is to inform the doses for the phase II trial.
"With this approval, we're excited to start the first-in-human study of otenaproxesul's new formulation -- and to be on track to launch the phase II trial in calendar Q1 2024," commented Dan Legault, Antibe's chief executive officer. "We look forward to updating our shareholders with the PK/PD results later in the upcoming quarter."
