Star Scientific Files First Quarter Report, Updates Details of Flint Study Using RCP-006
Date:5/11/2011

rs of inflammation in individuals with elevated levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) in their blood. Subject screening and blood work has begun this week.  As the company stated in a February 28 release that announced IRB approval for this study, elevated CRP levels are reliable markers for underlying chronic inflammation that is present in a number of coronary and vascular diseases, and in auto-immune diseases such as thyroid disease, diabetes and arthritis. The company anticipates that successful validation of the study hypothesis will result in the development and distribution of a nutraceutical product, based on RCP-006, aimed at maintaining healthy CRP levels.

There is intense focus in the scientific community on the search to identify compounds that can significantly reduce CRP levels and the underlying inflammatory processes they signal.  The study sites are in the Flint, Michigan area, as well as in another area of the state.  The principal investigators at the Roskamp Institute, which is overseeing the study, anticipate that 200-300 subjects will fully complete the study over the course of the next months.  The Roskamp Institute has indicated it intends to submit an analysis of the outcomes for publication.
