In the report, PCSA noted that its clinical drug pipeline is funded and targeting major milestones throughout this year. Corporate highlights for the company included the selection of five clinical sites around the United States for the upcoming phase 2b randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of PCS499 in treating patients who have necrobiosis lipoidica along with ulcerations; the initiation of clinical sites to enroll patients in the phase 1B study of the safety and PK of PCS6422 with capecitabine in patients with refractory GI tract tumors; and the plan to submit an IND application in the third quarter of 2021 for PCS12852, a small molecule drug in development for the treatment of gastroparesis and functional gastrointestinal motility disorders. The company also closed a private placement resulting in gross proceeds of $10.2 million.
