Swedish pharmaceutical firm Infant Bacterial Therapeutics and its principal investigator Dr. Josef Neu have made an initial evaluation of the topline data of the Phase II study of IBP-9414, finding a similar safety and tolerability profile in the active and placebo groups, the company reported on Monday.

The randomised, double blind, parallel-group, dose escalation placebo-controlled multicentred study examined the safety and tolerability of IBP-9414 administered in preterm infants.

It included 120 preterm infants, evaluated at various time points leading up to six months after the administration of the drug.

The data suggests a similar safety and tolerability profile in the active and placebo groups, but it will be further examined before it is presented at Hot Topics in Neonatology, Washington DC on 10/11 December 2017.

"We are encouraged by the data from this study and the planning for the pivotal Phase III study is continuing. I am also happy that we have been able to run the study according to plan in terms of recruitment, timelines and budget," commented CEO Staffan Stromberg.
