"Our lead product, PRT-201, represents a highly innovative approach to addressing the significant challenges associated with vascular access in patients with CKD, and we are very excited about the potential for PRT-201 to dramatically improve care for dialysis patients," said Timothy P. Noyes, President and CEO of Proteon. "Based on the positive results from this Phase 2 study, Proteon intends to advance PRT-201 into Phase 3 studies."Proteon is conducting a robust clinical research program evaluating PRT-201's ability to improve vascular outcomes. Proteon previously completed a Phase 1/2 AVF study, the results of which were recently published in the Journal of Vascular Access, and recently completed follow-up in a Phase 1/2 study in patients undergoing surgical placement of an arteriovenous graft (AVG). The AVG study results are expected in the first half of 2013. In October 2012, Proteon initiated enrollment in a Phase 1 study in which PRT-201 is delivered via a catheter following angioplasty of the superficial femoral or popliteal artery in patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease.
