Dicot has received approval to start phase 1 clinical trial

Uppsala, August 15, 2023. Dicot announces that the Swedish Medical Products Agency has granted permission to start clinical phase 1 trial with the drug candidate LIB-01. It is a placebo-controlled trial with primary objective to evaluate the safety profile in humans. 

Dicot's first-in-human study of the potency drug candidate LIB-01 has now received permission to start from the Swedish Medical Products Agency. Approval from the Ethics Review Authority has also been obtained and other preparations are complete. Screening of participants and dosing of the first dose group will start shortly.

It is a placebo-controlled phase 1 clinical trial where the primary objective is to evaluate LIB-01's safety profile in humans. The trial evaluates the safety following increasing doses of LIB-01 in healthy participants, both as a single ascending dose (SAD) and multiple ascending doses (MAD).

"The approval is of course an important milestone for us to pass and means that we can start the phase 1 study according to schedule. It is fantastic to finally get started and we expect the first results from the study to come during spring 2024," says Elin Trampe, CEO of Dicot.
