OCALA, Fla., Jan. 24, 2024 — AIM ImmunoTech Inc. (NYSE American: AIM) (“AIM” or the “Company”) today announced that it has received authorization from the Erasmus Medical Center (“Erasmus MC”) Ethics Committee to open a European site for the ongoing Phase 2 study (“AMP-270”) of Ampligen as a therapy for locally advanced pancreatic cancer.
“Approval from the governing ethics board is an important step toward enrolling subjects in the European arm of the AMP-270 clinical trial for locally advanced pancreatic cancer,” stated Prof. Casper H.J. van Eijck, MD, PhD, Pancreato-biliary Surgeon at Erasmus MC in the Netherlands. “Erasmus MC is tracking several cancer patients that we are hopeful will be enrolled in AMP-270.”
AMP-270 is a randomized, open-label, controlled, parallel-arm clinical trial with the primary objective of comparing the efficacy of Ampligen versus a no treatment control group following FOLFIRINOX for subjects with locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Secondary objectives include comparing safety and tolerability. AMP-270 is expected to enroll approximately 90 subjects in the United States and Europe.
