NA Proactive news snapshot: Aequus Pharmaceuticals, Acasti Pharma, Internet of Things, Revive Therapeutics UPDATE ....

A glance at some of the day's highlights from the Proactive Investors US and Canada newswires

Aequus Pharmaceuticals Inc () () is getting ready to file for regulatory approval in Canada for the Evolve line of dry eye products, it said Monday. The news comes as the Vancouver-based firm said its UK partner Medicom Healthcare received the final certificate for the Canadian Medical Device Single Audit Program necessary to complete the regulatory submission for Health Canada approval. Aequus said it expects to file for Canadian regulatory approval for the first three dry eye products in the Evolve line within the next 10 days.

() () released topline results from its Phase 3 TRILOGY 2 trial of lead drug CaPre that saw over 30% reduction in triglyceride levels in participants. The Quebec-based biopharmaceutical company reported a 30.4% average reduction in triglyceride levels among all patients receiving CaPre, as compared to 30.5% in TRILOGY 1, and a 17.9% median reduction in triglyceride levels among patients receiving placebo at 12 weeks as compared to 27.5% in TRILOGY 1. However, the company said unadjusted, placebo corrected triglyceride reduction of 12.4% achieved a “p” value of 0.19 – which was not statistically significant – meaning the TRILOGY 2 study did not meet its primary endpoint. As a result, Acasti said it will not file a New Drug Application with the US Food and Drug Administration for patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia, and does not plan to conduct additional clinical trials for CaPre.

The company said that “severe COVID-19” is characterized by an “over-exuberant inflammatory response” that may lead to a cytokine storm and ultimately death. FSD Pharma is developing FSD-201 for its anti-inflammatory properties to avoid the cytokine storm associated with acute lung injury in hospitalized COVID-19 patients. The trial will be a randomized, controlled, double-blind, US multicenter study at 25 to 30 sites, to assess the effectiveness and safety of FSD-201 dosed at 600 mg or 1,200 mg twice-daily, together with standard of care (SOC), versus SOC alone in hospitalized patients with documented COVID-19.

CEO Kyle Floyd deemed the quarter “tremendously successful” for the newly-listed royalty company as it acquired 27 royalties as part of a reverse takeover transaction and has added an additional five since its listing. A big move for the Toronto-based company was its acquisition of a proprietary royalty database from Mineral Royalties Online Pty Ltd, which includes over 7,000 global royalties, providing Vox with a first-mover advantage to execute non-brokered royalty deals.

Todos Medical Ltd (), a diagnostics company, announced Monday that it has entered into a sales agreement with a Wisconsin-based laboratory to supply it with the necessary coronavirus (COVID-19) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing equipment and supplies.
