Two COVID-19 studies in headway with DMX-200
DMX-200 is Dimerix’s lead drug candidate and is a part of two different investigator-led Phase 3 clinical trials in patients having respiratory complications related to COVID-19.
Moreover, the Company was awarded almost A$1 million from the Australian Government for one of these clinical studies from the highly competitive Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF). The endorsement reflects the robust scientific rationale for DMX-200.
Despite the launch of COVID-19 vaccines, many respiratory symptoms will need to be addressed in many people and nations accordingly.
CLARITY 2.0 study in a nutshell
- DMX-200 is included in a large 600 patient Phase 3 clinical study led by Professor Meg Jardine from the NHMRC Clinical Trials Centre at The University of Sydney, Australia.
- CLARITY 2.0 study aimed at COVID-19 patients at an earlier stage of respiratory complications, before the onset of ARDS (Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome), which is being examined in the REMAP-CAP study.
- CLARITY 2.0 is a double-blind, investigator-initiated, multi-centre, prospective, placebo-controlled, randomised clinical study.
- The study’s primary endpoint is 7-point clinical health at day 14 of the treatment, adapted from the categorical scale, as per WHO’s recommendation for COVID-19 trials.

The Company notified that the CLARITY 2.0 team had obtained authorisation from the Central Independent Ethical Review Board. This approval is required to get final clearance from the Indian regulatory authority.
Moreover, several clinical trial sites have been engaged, and recruitment will start following the regulatory approval is obtained. The Company anticipates securing regulatory approval in April.
