CBLI what is the Hold up?
In January 2010, we began dosing in the second human safety study, a Phase Ib study, for Protectan CBLB502 and completed dosing in May 2010
In September 2010, we were awarded a contract (the "2010 DoD Contract") by the Chemical Biological and Medical Systems ("CBMS") Medical Identification and Treatment Systems ("MITS") of the DoD for the advanced development and procurement of Protectan CBLB502 as a medical radiation countermeasure.

Our scientists have demonstrated that injecting Protectan CBLB502 into mice, rats and non-human primates protects them from lethal doses of total body gamma radiation. proved to be a stable compound for storage purposes. It can be stored at temperatures close to freezing, room temperature or extreme heat. Manufacturing of Protectan CBLB502 is cost efficient due to its high yield bacterial producing strain and simple purification process.

Protectan CBLB502 is being developed under the FDA's animal efficacy rule (21 C.F.R. § 314.610, drugs; § 601.91, biologics) to treat radiation injury following exposure to radiation from nuclear or radiological weapons, or from nuclear accident.

We have successfully established current Good Manufacturing Practices ("cGMP"), quality manufacturing for Protectan CBLB502 and have completed two Phase I human safety studies for Protectan CBLB502 in ARS. The initial human Phase I safety and tolerability study involved single injections of Protectan CBLB502 in ascending-dose cohorts. The 50 participants in the study were assessed for adverse side effects over a 28-day time period and blood samples were obtained to assess the effects of Protectan CBLB502 on various biomarkers. Data from these subjects indicates that Protectan CBLB502 was well tolerated and that normalized biomarker results corresponded to previously demonstrated activity in animal models of ARS. A pattern of biomarker production was observed consistent with those patterns seen in animals during mitigation of radiation-induced injury by dosing with Protectan CBLB502.

In January 2010, we began dosing in the second human safety study, a Phase Ib study, for Protectan CBLB502 and completed dosing in May 2010. This safety study included a total of 100 healthy volunteers randomized among four dosing regimens of Protectan CBLB502. Participants in the 100-subject study were assessed for adverse side effects and blood samples were obtained to assess the effects of Protectan CBLB502 on various biomarkers. The primary objectives of this study were to gather additional data on safety, pharmacokinetics, and cytokine biomarkers in a larger and broader subject population. Administration of Protectan CBLB502 resulted in a rapid and potent cytokine response, similar to that seen in the prior clinical trial and in previously conducted non-human primate studies. Single and double doses of Protectan CBLB502 were well tolerated. The primary adverse event associated with Protectan CBLB502 administration was a transient flu-like syndrome consistent with what was observed in the previous trial and which generally resolved within 24 hours. There was no difference in the adverse event profile between the doses tested. We anticipate moving forward with a definitive safety study in a larger group of healthy human volunteers after determining an appropriate dose to take forward and determining the size of a definitive human safety study in conjunction with the FDA.

Protectan CBLB502 was granted Fast Track status by the FDA in July 2010 for reducing the risk of death following total body irradiation during or after radiation disaster.

Er ah What year is this?
