Lead Therapeutic Candidate To Be Named Zofin(TM)
Miami, FL (August 18, 2020) — Organicell Regenerative Medicine, Inc. (OTCBB: BPSR), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of regenerative therapies, announced today that it has partnered with Alternative Research Associates, LLC and Larkin Hospital in Miami, FL to initiate a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled phase I/II clinical trial against COVID-19 of its lead therapeutic candidate, which has been rebranded as Zofin.
To date, a total of five patients have been treated with Zofin under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) emergency Investigational New Drug (eIND) Program. Three of these COVID-19 patients were hospitalized in critical condition and, following treatment, regained complete recovery of lung and renal function. The other two patients were treated as outpatients and both have shown significant improvements in all symptoms and will continue to be monitored.
The objective of the FDA phase I/II study is to investigate the safety and potential efficacy of perinatal sourced components for COVID-19. The study will enroll 20 patients and is expected to commence within the next two weeks.
In addition to the rebranding of its therapeutic candidate, Organicell will be unveiling a new corporate logo, tagline and website. The new brand reflects the company’s renewed focus on building and advancing a portfolio of biologics.
Albert Mitrani, Chief Executive Officer of Organicell stated, “Our team and stakeholders have worked vigilantly to make 2020 a milestone year at Organicell. We are pleased to partner with Alternative Research Associates and Larkin Hospital to advance this important clinical study to evaluate moderate to severe patients with COVID-19.”
Dr. Maria Ines Mitrani, Chief Science Officer at Organicell stated, “We look forward to working with our partners at Larkin Community Hospital to evaluate the treatment of Zofin in moderate to severe COVID-19 patients.”
