Interim Analysis of Recardio's Phase II Clinical Trial Published in European Heart Journal

Recardio Inc., a life science company developing regenerative therapies for cardiovascular diseases, announced that its positive results of the interim analysis of Recardio's Phase II clinical trial in AMI were published in the latest release of the European Heart Journal. The current version of the journal relates to the presentation during the 2020 Congress of the European Society of Cardiology.

Entitled “Randomized, Double Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Safety and Efficacy Study of Dutogliptin in Combination with Filgrastim in Early Recovery Post-Myocardial Infarction: rationale, design and first interim analysis”, the publication provides a first insight into patient outcomes of the trial that is currently ongoing in multiple centers. Patients included in this trial experienced a severe form of Myocardial Infarction known as STEMI. Soon after the initial intervention to re-establish adequate blood flow to the coronary arteries, patients begin a two-week treatment with Recardio’s dutogliptin, a small molecule that enables sustained homing of mobilised stem cells to the site of cardiac injury. By releasing paracrine factors, stem cells have been shown to have significant repair and regenerative effects that improve healing and recovery of cardiac function after the infarction.

The publication was released in the European Heart Journal (Vol. 41) from November 2020, which can be accessed under: https://academic.oup.com/eurheartj/issue/41/Supplement_2

About Recardio

Recardio Inc. is a clinical-stage life science company focusing on therapies for cardiovascular and other diseases. The company is located in San Francisco, California, and is having its operations in USA and Europe. The company’s lead drug candidate, dutogliptin, is a DPP-IV inhibitor that has demonstrated significant effects in activating various chemokines like SDF-1, a protein that is critical for cardiac regeneration. In addition to its current Phase 2 cardiovascular clinical program, Recardio will fully develop the therapeutic platform as a regenerative medication for patients with various cardiovascular diseases including acute myocardial infarction and chronic heart failure, with the potential of improving heart function, quality of life and survival.
