WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Histogenics Corporation (Histogenics) (Nasdaq:HSGX), a regenerative medicine company focused on developing and commercializing products in the musculoskeletal space, announced that as of October 24, 2016 it had enrolled 183, or approximately three-quarters, of the 245 patients required to complete enrollment of its ongoing NeoCart Phase 3 clinical trial. This trial is being conducted under a Special Protocol Assessment (SPA) with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
"The enrollment strategies we implemented last year continue to result in increased patient enrollment in our ongoing NeoCart Phase 3 clinical trial. With enrollment approximately 75% complete and tracking ahead of our expectations, we are now counting down the number of patients required to complete enrollment and turning our focus to the generation and availability of the one-year superiority data and a BLA submission to the FDA shortly thereafter," stated Adam Gridley
, Chief Executive Officer of Histogenics. "Having recently completed a financing aimed at funding Histogenics through our top-line data read-out in mid-2018, we believe we are well positioned to execute on our operating plans to bring this important therapy to market, if approved," continued Mr. Gridley.
