Lupuzor™’s Investigators Meeting
15th December 2015 - 3:26 pm
Over 70 Lupus specialists gather in Paris for Lupuzor™’s Phase III Investigators Meeting
The key objective of the event was to bring together key specialists in the field of Lupus who will be actively involved as clinical investigators in ImmuPharma’s Phase III Lupuzor™ pivotal trial and to brief them about the protocol and the complicated but required procedures to assess efficacy in the Lupus trial.
The event was jointly organised by ImmuPharma and Simbec-Orion, the Company’s contract research organisation conducting the study. The meeting was attended by over 70 investigators and senior coordinators from the USA and Europe who will be involved in this pivotal Phase III trial for Lupuzor™.
The meeting was introduced by ImmuPharma’s Fanny Valleix, Head of Clinical Research in charge of the study and Dr Robert Zimmer, President and Chief Scientific Officer. Dr Daniel Wallace, Associate Director, Rheumatology Fellowship Program, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, a member of ImmuPharma’s Scientific Advisory Board and a Principal Investigator for Lupuzor™’s Phase III trial also presented. His presentation was entitled “The evolution of drug discovery in Lupus: Current status and future directions”. Prof Sylviane Muller, the inventor of Lupuzor™ and Research Director at the CNRS (the French national center for scientific research) presented Lupuzor’s origins, its unique mechanism of action with supportive data of the compound’s strong safety and efficacy profile.
