SPCI Launched the SCOT (Sickle Cell Omega-3 Treatment) Trial in the United States with an Investigator Meeting Held December 16-17 in Atlanta

Sancilio Pharmaceuticals Company, Inc. (SPCI) today announced the start of the first of two placebo controlled clinical trials in US pediatric patients affected with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). Recruitment in the trial is underway and enrollment is expected to be completed by Q2 2017 and will be immediately followed by a second placebo controlled clinical study in Q3 2017.

SCD is estimated to affect 100,000 Americans, with a disproportional impact on African Americans.

“It has taken us nearly 3 years to get to the point of dosing children in the United States who have this horrible disease. I am excited by the data we’ve seen in studies performed abroad, but having only children from the United States in such a study will be exciting and conclusive,” said Dr. Frederick Sancilio, CEO of SPCI.
