Hexima Limited is pleased to announce today that it has received Human Research Ethics Committee approval to conduct a phase 1/2a clinical trial of HXP124 in patients with fungal nail infections.

Hexima’s CEO Dr Nicole van der Weerden said “Obtaining ethics approval for our first clinical trial is a major milestone for Hexima. It is the culmination of the last three years of work to generate the required non-clinical data including preclinical safety/toxicology, efficacy testing and manufacture, formulation and stability of HXP124. The ethics committee has reviewed this data, along with our clinical study design, and granted us permission to test this molecule on human patients for the first time. This is a critical step forward in the development of HXP124 as a treatment for fungal nail infections and we are very excited to begin this next phase of development.”
