Organicell Commences Phase I/II Clinical Trial Enrollment
Miami, FL (September 2, 2020) — Organicell Regenerative Medicine, Inc. (OTCBB: BPSR), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of regenerative therapies, announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted emergency, expanded access approval to treat two mild to moderate COVID-19 patients and one “Long Hauler” post COVID-19 patient.
These first two patients were treated three days after testing positive for COVID-19. The first patient experienced common COVID-19 symptoms including weakness, shortness of breath, headache and a deep, dry frequent cough. The patient’s physician reported that after receiving two doses of Zofin, the patient’s symptoms improved dramatically; allowing him to return to daily activities.
The second patient had similar symptoms and suffered from multiple co-morbidity conditions including asthma which required her to take inhalers, nebulizers and intermittent steroids. She was treated with steroids and hydroxychloroquine prior to receiving the second dose. After six days, the patient’s physician reported that her symptoms had improved significantly.
The third patient, the “long-hauler”, experienced multiple ongoing symptoms classic to post COVID-19 syndrome including headaches, muscle aches, tightness in chest, brain fog, fatigue, fever and shortness of breath. After 10 days of treatment, her physician reported that she has experienced improvement in energy levels and her brain fog has disappeared.
George Shapiro, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Organicell said, “The six outpatients with different stages of COVID-19 were treated with Zofin under an emergency investigational new drug expanded access program, with physicians for all six patients reporting significant improvement.”
“If we continue to experience positive patient results, we will, in conjunction with securing necessary regulatory approvals, consider expanding our Zofin manufacturing capability,” said Albert Mitrani, Chief Executive Officer of Organicell.
“Organicell will commence patient enrollment this week in a Phase I/II clinical trial to evaluate the treatment of Zofin in moderate to severe COVID-19 patients at Larkin Community Hospital in Miami. Based on the results seen from these previous eIND patients, we are excited to continue working closely with the FDA and other regulatory agencies to move Zofin forward in the approval process,” said Maria Ines Mitrani, M.D., PhD, Chief Science Officer of Organicell.
