AzurRx BioPharma (NASDAQ: AZRX), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development of targeted, non-systemic therapies for gastrointestinal (“GI”) diseases, today announced completion of enrollment in its Phase 2 trial evaluating MS1819 in combination with the current standard of care, porcine-derived pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (“PERT”). The combination trial is for the treatment of severe exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (“EPI”) in patients with cystic fibrosis (“CF”). “We are very pleased to have completed enrollment in our Phase 2 MS1819 plus PERT combination therapy clinical trial,” said James Sapirstein, president, CEO and chairman of AzurRx. “Based on the very encouraging clinical results to date, we believe that the combination therapy has significant potential to help the 25-30% of refractory cystic fibrosis patients with severe EPI who are unable to achieve adequate nutrition using PERT alone. Adding a small dose of MS1819 can help these patients meet their nutritional needs, reduce the debilitating symptoms of EPI and improve their overall quality of life, with an increased safety profile.”
