Qu Biologics Enrolling Patients in Crohn’s Clinical Trials
Biotechnology company Qu Biologics Inc. will initiate patient enrollment for two new clinical trials to evaluate a therapy for Crohn's disease. The company is studying the use of its Site Specific Immunomodulators (SSIs), to restore the normal immune function of the body as a potential treatment for Crohn's in two trials that will take place in Edmonton, Alberta and Toronto, Ontario, both in Canada. The two trials to be conducted by Qu Biologics were designed as randomized, placebo-controlled research studies with volunteers who suffer from moderate-to-severe Crohn's disease. During the studies, investigators will analyze the use of QBECO SSI, which is a novel immunotherapy based on compounds from the inactivated E. coli bacteria that is expected to stimulate an innate immune response in the gastrointestinal tract and attack the chronic inflammation associated to the disease. "Opening trial sites in Edmonton and Toronto allow participants from other provinces to access our clinical trial closer to home," said the CEO of Qu Biologics, Hal Gunn in a press release. "These two new clinical trial sites will also help us accelerate our goal of completing trial enrollment by Q3 2015 and obtaining primary results by the end of the year." In addition to Edmonton and Toronto, the trial is also being conducted in Vancouver. The research is being supervised by a group of recognized scientists a
