“BL-7010 for the treatment of celiac disease is one of our lead clinical programs. We are currently testing its safety and tolerability in a Phase 1/2 trial in well-controlled celiac patients. We previously announced successful completion of the single-dose escalation part of the study, and the 14-day, repeated administration part of the study is currently ongoing. We look forward to the results of this Phase 1/2 trial, expected in the next few weeks, which will enable selection of the optimal dose for future development. Following completion of this study, we plan to commence a randomized, controlled efficacy study in celiac patients,” concluded Dr. Savitsky.
