A Phase 2 Study of IC14 in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Preliminary Efficacy Study of IC14 in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) patients will be randomized to receive either IC14 (a single dose of 4 mg/kg followed by 2 mg/kg on Days 2-4) or placebo. Study participation will be for a total of 28 days.
Up to 160 patients with ARDS will be randomized to receive either IC14 at a dosage of 4 mg/kg on Study Day 1, then 2 mg/kg once daily on Study Days 2-4 or placebo for 4 days beginning within 48 hours of meeting inclusion criteria. Study participation will be for 28 days.
