Kinneret Savitsky, Ph.D., CEO of BioLineRx, remarked, “We are pleased with the progress achieved during the quarter by our clinical and pre-clinical therapeutic compounds, and are confident in their potential. With respect to our clinical assets, we recently received approval from the Israeli Ministry of Health to commence a Phase 2 clinical trial for BL-7040, which is a key milestone in the development of this promising orally-available treatment for IBD. In addition, a European patent was granted for one of our two leading therapeutic candidates, BL-1020, valid through September 2022. The Phase 2/3 CLARITY clinical trial for BL-1020 is progressing on schedule and we expect it to be completed in mid-2013. In parallel to the trial, we are conducting discussions with potential partners for the out-licensing of this drug, which has demonstrated improved cognitive function in schizophrenic patients.”
