Sigma Tau Pharmasource, Inc. Key Developments

Sigma-Tau Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces First Patient Dosed in Phase I/II Clinical Trial of STP206

Sigma-Tau Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that the first patient has been dosed as part of the company's Phase I/II multi center, double blind, randomized, placebo controlled clinical trial for STP206, in development for the prevention of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in very low birth weight premature infants. STP206 is a live biotherapeutic being developed in the United States, under an FDA investigational new drug application (IND). NEC is the most common serious acquired disease of the gastrointestinal tract in preterm infants, most often affecting infants under 1,500 g (3 lbs, 5 oz). The disease is characterized by signs of abdominal distension, intra-abdominal inflammation, and radiologic presence of pneumatosis intestinalis and/or portal venous air or free air indicating perforation of the bowel, which in the most severe cases, can be life threatening. The disease has been reported to occur in approximately 10% of very low birth weight (<=1500 g) infants and about 1 in every 2,000-4,000 births. There is presently no FDA approved treatment for NEC, resulting in an urgent, unmet medical need.
