Recce moves ahead with clinical trial

Investors are snapping up Recce shares after the company reported positive safety results in a trial for its broad-spectrum antibiotic drug, Recce 327.

The phase I trial assessed the safety and efficacy of Recce 327 against infectious bacteria on burn wounds in patients.

According to its announcement, the company advised that 7 healthy male patients have received 150mg of Recce 327 intravenously. It said this second group of subjects appears to be safe and well, tolerating the level of dosage.

An earlier first study cohort had been administered 50mg of the drug.

Based on the above data, an independent safety committee has approved a threefold increase in the dose for the third study cohort. This will see between 7 to 10 healthy volunteers being administered up to 500mg of Recce 327.

The subjects are expected to be recruited this week and dosed at Adelaide’s CMAX clinical trial facility.

Recce CEO James Graham commented:

We are pleased to see R327 (150mg) successfully tolerated as an intravenous infusion in Cohort Two subjects. Having successfully cleared two dosing levels (50mg and 150mg) we look forward to embarking upon this next significant milestone.
