Clinical Trials


Takeda Crohn’s Disease: The ADMIRE-CDII Study

The purpose of this study is to confirm how well Cx601 works compared to a placebo, and how safe and tolerable Cx601 is compared to placebo for the treatment of complex perianal fistula(s) in subjects with Crohn’s disease.

COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma Study

Individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 develop proteins called antibodies in the part of their blood called plasma. Because these antibodies can block COVID-19 infection, the U.S Food and Administration has authorized the transfusion of plasma isolated from COVID-19 convalescent donors to treat severely ill individuals and help them fight the disease.
