Adamis Pharmaceuticals Provides Update on Clinical Study Assessing Tempol for the Treatment of COVID-19

DSMB Has Reviewed Interim Clinical and Safety Data and Recommended that the Study Continue

SAN DIEGO, June 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ: ADMP), a biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing specialty products for allergy, opioid overdose, respiratory and inflammatory diseases, today announced that a meeting of the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) overseeing the Company’s Phase 2/3 clinical trial investigating the use of Tempol for the treatment of COVID-19, was held on May 31 to evaluate interim clinical and safety data for the trial. The DSMB is composed of subject matter experts and can unblind the data to determine the treatment effects of the subjects in the trial. Based on an interim review of the data, the DSMB determined that the study can continue as planned.

“We look forward to the completion and final analysis of this important clinical trial,” said David J. Marguglio, Chief Executive Officer of Adamis Pharmaceuticals. “We appreciate the timely feedback from the DSMB as COVID-19 remains a serious public health problem with recent spikes in infections due to omicron and other variants. Additional therapeutic options are needed for outpatient treatment of COVID-19.”

The Company previously announced the results of a published study in collaboration with Stanford University researchers, suggesting that Tempol has strong, broad in-vitro anti-cytokine activity. In addition, the Company previously announced that in an animal SARS-COV2 challenge model, a decrease in inflammation was noted in the lungs of animals given Tempol compared to control animals.
