Regulatory Pathway Clarified For AXA1125. Axcella announced acceptance of its IND for a Phase 2b/3 trial testing AXA1125 in Long COVID. As a newly recognized condition with no approved drugs, the requirements for clinical trials and regulatory approval were unknown. We view the announcement as significant milestone that establishes the regulatory pathway for AXA1125 in Long COVID. The proposed trial has been accepted for both US and UK regulatory approval, allowing Axcella to move the program forward.
Conference Call Reiterates Details For Long Covid Trial As anticipated, the FDA and MHRA will accept a single, placebo-controlled study for regulatory approval in the US and UK. The study will include endpoints to assess mental and physical functions that are common symptoms of Long COVID. The planned enrollment is about 300 patients, with a treatment period of 3 months.
