Initial trial data evaluation will begin in approximately 75 days, with conclusion to occur 90 days after dosing the last patient, which is expected sometime in the third quarter of this year.

Zofin, which is derived from perinatal sources, has more than 300 growth factors, cytokines, and chemokines in addition to extracellular vesicles/nanoparticles derived from perinatal tissues.

Organicell is currently evaluating the safety and potential efficacy of intravenous infusion of Zofin in a Phase I/II randomised, double blinded, placebo trial for the treatment of moderate to SARS related to Covid-19.

Separately, Can-Fite BioPharma has announced the expansion of its Phase II randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled Covid-19 study of Piclidenoson, to Romania and Bulgaria.

In this study, the benefits of treatment of the drug plus standard supportive care (SSC) vs placebo plus SSC are evaluated in patients hospitalised with moderate to severe Covid-19.

The robust anti-inflammatory effect of Piclidenoson can treat Covid-19 and its mutations.
