Altasciences Conducts Phase I Study in Healthy Normal Subjects for RLS-0071 for Treatment of Acute Lung Injury Due to COVID-19 Pneumonia

Laval, Quebec - Altasciences is pleased to support ReAlta Life Sciences by conducting a Phase I trial to evaluate RLS-0071 for treatment of Acute Lung Injury (ALI) as a result of viral infections, such as COVID-19, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and influenza. As part of the ReAlta ALI program underway, the Phase I trial is a single-ascending dose, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, adaptive-design study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, PK, and PD of RLS-0071 in healthy subjects, performed at the Altasciences clinical pharmacology unit in Montreal, Canada.

Ingrid Holmes, Vice President, Global Clinical Operations at Altasciences, says, “Our teams are proud to have the opportunity to be involved in the clinical conduct and bioanalytical analysis for this important first-in-human trial. Being able to prioritize COVID-19 therapies by contributing critical data to the development of potentially life-altering medications, such as RLS-0071, is tremendously rewarding to our teams.”
