Excerpt from the Press Release:

LA JOLLA, Calif., Feb. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MediciNova, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company traded on the NASDAQ Global Market (NASDAQ:MNOV) and the JASDAQ Market of the Tokyo Stock Exchange (Code Number: 4875), today announced that Health Canada has completed its review of the clinical trial application and has granted authorization to commence a grant-funded, multi-center, randomized, clinical trial to evaluate MN-166 (ibudilast) and other therapies for the treatment of Long COVID, the lingering symptoms of COVID-19.

The trial, entitled REcovering from COVID-19 Lingering Symptoms Adaptive Integrative Medicine, or “RECLAIM,” is a collaboration between MediciNova and the University Health Network, the largest hospital-based research program in Canada. MediciNova will supply the study drug and will provide regulatory and safety follow-up support.

Kazuko Matsuda, M.D. Ph. D, M.P.H., Chief Medical Officer, MediciNova, Inc., commented, “Since COVID-19 became a global health threat, multiple vaccines and treatment options became available, yet not many treatment options have been evaluated in COVID-19 sequelae, so-called Long COVID. There is a large unmet medical need for patients with this disorder, which can have serious ramifications on quality of life, health care utilization and ability to return to work. We are very excited about the initiation of this multi-arm Phase 2/3 trial to evaluate MN-166 as a drug candidate for Long COVID.”
