STOCKHOLM, Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

NefIgArd Phase 3-study initiated according to plan

"This quarter, the company went into execution mode with regards to the preparations related to our clinical Phase 3 study NefIgArd. We were excited to get going after receiving the necessary funds in July. We have been submitting requests for approval to ethic committees, negotiated contracts with clinics and continued to tie up the hundreds of ends required in order to initiate such a large, global study. With 19 countries and 149 sites, we believe that this is one of largest clinical studies to be managed out of Sweden today.

Based on progress to date, we believe that we are on track to dose our first patient in 2H 2018 as planned."
