BioLineRx Ltd. has announced that it will present positive safety results of its Phase 1/2 study for BL-7010, a novel polymer for the treatment of celiac disease, at the 16th International Celiac Disease Symposium (ICDS 2015), to take place from June 21-24 in Prague, Czech Republic. The Phase 1/2 results were previously announced in November 2014.

BL-7010 was found to be safe and well tolerated in the single-dose phase, and the optimal safe dose for future development was determined in the repeated-dose phase.
The Company is in the final stages of additional non-clinical studies and formulation development for BL-7010 in preparation for the upcoming randomized, placebo-controlled efficacy study, which is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2015.
