Shield Therapeutics Completes Recruitment to Pivotal Phase 3 Programme for Treatment of Iron Deficiency
Date:6/23/2013

ing cause of fatigue that debilitates day-to-day quality of life.  The oral ferrous iron preparations are often poorly tolerated, leaving intravenous iron infusions as the preferred option.  However these require significant additional patient time and healthcare resources, hence there is an urgent need for a more convenient solution which we anticipate ST10 may deliver."

Shield Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Carl Sterritt, added:

"We are very grateful to the patients for their commitment, as well as the investigators and their research staff for their hard work and considerable skill that has made this study possible.  The completion of recruitment into this pivotal trial is an important step in bringing orally dosed ST10 to market as an effective way of correcting anaemia in patients who cannot tolerate oral ferrous iron therapy and so have to rely on the higher risk option of invasive and resource-consuming intravenous administration of iron."
