UNION therapeutics A/S (UNION) today announced that the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) in the UK has granted Urgent Public Health (UPH) prioritization to the PROTECT-V trial – a platform study investigating UNION’s niclosamide-based treatment candidate for COVID-19 in kidney patients.
Clinical trials granted UPH prioritization by the NIHR are deemed critically important in the fight against COVID-19 and will thus receive infrastructure support allowing expedited recruitment for the study. NIHR is an entity under the Department of Health & Social Care of the UK government.
UPH prioritization will enable streamlined site set up across the UK, and facilitate rapid patient recruitment as a result of NIHR resource and clinical research network support being available.
The PROTECT-V trial is led by the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Cambridge and involves researchers and patients from across the UK.
