I’m sure that soon the authorization to conduct CI of this Russian drug in other EU countries will follow.” said Roman Ivanov, Vice President for Development and Research at Biocad.

292 patients will be recruited in the Study within a period of 12 months in the European Union, the Russian Federation, and the People's Republic of China.
