Qu Biologics Inc., a private clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing Site Specific Immunomodulators (SSIs), a novel platform of immunotherapies designed to restore innate immune function, is pleased to announce it received clearance (No Objection Letter) from Health Canada to proceed with a randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial of QBKPN, a first-in-class innate immune modulator that enhances lung immunity, in the elderly (Immunosenescence [IS]-01 trial). The clinical trial is designed to assess QBKPN’s effectiveness in restoring innate immunity, the prevention of serious morbidity and mortality from respiratory infections, including COVID-19 and its variants, and reduction in all-cause mortality. With the receipt of Health Canada’s No Objection Letter, the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) has committed additional advisory services and conditional funding to support this important clinical study.
