The Company has received the approval in France and Netherlands and has just started the initiation of the investigating sites in these countries. The approval in the remaining territories is expected to be obtained in the following weeks. First patient treated is expected in October 2021.

An update on patients recruitment will be provided in the second quarter of 2022, following by top-line interim analyses results.

Enrico Bastianelli, Chief Executive Officer of TheraVet, concludes: “Following the positive efficacy and safety results of VISCO-VET in the proof-of-concept study, we are very delighted to initiate the patient recruitment of this pivotal trial for VISCO-VET.”
