“Our End-of-Phase 2 meeting was a decisive milestone for the Company as we advance the clinical development of CIRARA™,” states Sven Jacobson, Chief Executive Officer of Remedy Pharmaceuticals. “We are pleased with the FDA’s guidance on our Phase 3 trial design in patients with large hemispheric stroke and we look forward to initiating the study as quickly as possible.”
