Revotar Reports First Positive Clinical Results From Phase IIa Study in COPD
Date:10/31/2007

HENNIGSDORF and BERLIN, Germany, October 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Revotar Biopharmaceuticals AG., today announced first positive results from an investigator driven open labelled Phase IIa pilot study in 14 patients with stable COPD stage 0 to II (GOLD criteria) inhaling 70 mg of Bimosiamose twice a day. The study was conducted at the Charite - Medical School Charite Berlin, Prof. Witt and the Respiratory Institute Wiesbaden, Dr. Beeh. The results were presented during the recent European Respiratory Society Meeting in Stockholm in September.

"Despite of the short treatment period we were surprised to see that analysis of induced sputum prior to and after Bimosiamose treatment of 9 days showed that both relative and absolute lymphocytes count decreased significantly. In addition, sputum IL-8 was significantly decreased. The latter is supposed to correlate with the severity of the disease," commented Prof. Dr. Meyer-Sabellek, clinical advisor to Revotar and previously SVP Research&Development at AstraZeneca, Germany. "Inhalation of Bimosiamose twice daily for up to 9 days was well tolerated and safe in patients. This targeted therapy provides the potential to prevent the further progression of inflammatory components in COPD and should be evaluated further in larger clinical trials," added Prof. Dr. Witt from the Charite and the Principal Investigator of the study.
