HAMBURG, Germany and CALGARY, AB, June 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Resverlogix Corp. ("Resverlogix" or the "Company") (TSX:RVX) announced today that key scientific data was communicated in an oral presentation highlighting the novel features of the Company's lead drug RVX-208 at the European Atherosclerosis Society Congress (EAS) conference being held in Hamburg, Germany. The presentation titled "RVX-208 given orally raises plasma ApoA-I and HDL in human clinical trials," was presented by Dr. Norman Wong, MD, Chief Scientific Officer of Resverlogix.
"The data presented in Germany today further highlights that patients with low HDL/Apo-Al benefit most. For those patients in the highest risk category, subjects with low baseline HDL/Apo-Al, our data demonstrated that RVX-208 increased plasma levels of Apo-Al in the order of 13.25% compared to placebo. This data, combined with similar low baseline HDL/Apo A-l data analysis of the upcoming ASSERT trial data will further support the design of a very effective and efficient ASSURE trial," said Donald J. McCaffrey, President & CEO of Resverlogix.
Resverlogix recently completed a Phase 2 clinical trial called ASSERT to study RVX-208 an oral small molecule therapy for the treatment of atherosclerosis. The ASSERT trial enrolled subjects with stable coronary artery disease. A second planned Phase 2 trial, designated ASSURE, will include subjects with acute coronary syndrome and coronary artery disease of whom all will be examined with intravascular ultrasound (IVUS). Both the ASSERT and ASSURE
