Business highlights in the third quarter of 2015
- NeuroVive refocused CicloMulsion development and discontinued acute myocardial infarction indication. This decision follows the data from the investigator-initiated Phase III CIRCUS study of CicloMulsion® in patients with a specific type of heart attack known as ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) showed that CicloMulsion® had no therapeutic effect on AMI patients undergoing PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention).
- NeuroVive announced the departure of CEO, Mikael Brönnegård, and Jan Nilsson, COO, will head up the company in the role of interim CEO in the period until a new CEO is appointed by the Board of Directors. The recruitment process to find a successor has begun.
Events post balance sheet
- NeuroVive aims to find path forward in antiviral development following discontinuation of OCB-030 preclinical program by Arbutus, formerly OnCore Biopharma, who have decided to discontinue development of OCB-030 (NVP018) so the company can focus its resources on other agents that directly target HBV. NeuroVive believes that the compound still has future potential based on the independent evidence that supports its application in this area.
