Roskamp Institute Obtains IRB Approval for Multi-Site Human Clinical Trial with Rock Creek Pharmaceutical RCP-006 Compound
Date:2/28/2011

GLEN ALLEN, Va., Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals, a wholly owned subsidiary of Star Scientific, Inc. (Nasdaq: CIGX) has been notified by the Roskamp Institute of Sarasota, Florida that the Institute has received institutional review board (IRB) approval to conduct a three-month, multi-site clinical trial with Rock Creek's RCP-006 nutritional supplement formula.  The study (referred to as the "Flint Study"), will enroll approximately 200 subjects and begins with subject recruitment and enrollment. It will be centered in the Flint, Michigan area, where a number of physicians and surgeons have volunteered to enroll patients who meet the subject profile.  The trial will examine the effect of RCP-006 on chronic inflammation in individuals who have elevated blood levels of C-reactive protein (CRP).  CRP is a human serum protein that, when elevated, is an indicator of risk for a variety of diseases, and is a known marker for chronic inflammation.  Clinical research has shown that certain forms of coronary artery and vascular diseases, and a number of autoimmune diseases (including diabetes and thyroid disease) all are linked by risk factors that include indications of chronic inflammation. Evidence of reduction in CRP levels in individuals at high risk for these conditions would be strong evidence that RCP-006 can be helpful in the nutritional management of these diseases.  Factors related to nutritional supplementation are already known to impact human disorders involving chronic low-level inflammation. For example, aspirin, weight loss, exercise and healthy dietary practices reduce these inflammatory markers and are known to reduce cardiovascular and/or stroke risk.  There is intense focus in the scientific community on the search to identify compounds that can significantly reduce CRP levels and the underlying inflammatory process t
