Resverlogix Corp. has announced that following recent meetings with various European regulatory bodies, the first confirmation for our Phase 3 clinical plan has officially been received.
A further regulatory and protocol design update will be provided to the market post the approval of additional regulatory bodies and the launch of our planned Phase 3 clinical trial entitled BETonMACE.
