Recursion Provides Updated Guidance on Clinical Trial Starts
SALT LAKE CITY, March 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Recursion (NASDAQ: RXRX) today provided updated guidance on clinical trial starts:
- Recursion's leadership team has decided that conducting a dose optimization study in a sheep efficacy model of Tay-Sachs disease is prudent and in the best interest of patients before enrolling infants in a Phase 2 trial of REC-3599 in the ultra-rare indication infantile GM2 gangliosidosis. This decision will delay the GM2 Phase 2 trial start by approximately 2 years.
- Recursion's Phase 2 trial of REC-994 in Cerebral Cavernous Malformation is on track and we expect to enroll the first patient in the coming weeks.
- The Phase 2 portion of Recursion's adaptive Phase 2/3 trial of REC-2282 in Neurofibromatosis Type 2 is on track to enroll in Q2.
- Recursion's Phase 2 trial of REC-4881 in Familial Adenomatous Polyposis is expected to enroll the first patient in either Q2 or potentially Q3, 2022 due to challenges with site opening presented by the Covid-19 Omicron variant.
- Preparations for Recursion's Phase 1 study of REC-3964 in recurrent C. difficile colitis are on track, and we expect to begin enrollment in the second half of 2022.
