BioCorRx Provides 2020 Year-End Business Update
ANAHEIM, CA, April 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- BioCorRx Inc. (OTCQB: BICX) (the “Company”), a developer and provider of advanced solutions in the treatment of substance use disorders, today provided a year-end business update for 2020 and reported on recent corporate developments.
Lourdes Felix, CEO, CFO and Director of BioCorRx Inc., commented, “We are very pleased with the clinical and corporate progress we made during 2020. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, our subsidiary, BioCorRx Pharmaceuticals Inc., has advanced our pivotal good laboratory practice (GLP) preclinical studies of our sustained release naltrexone implant for the treatment of opioid and alcohol use disorders. The aim of the preclinical studies is to collect data in support of the safety of our product in order to submit our IND application to the FDA. In early 2020, we were awarded an additional $2.8 million from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which was the second tranche from the total grant of approximately $5.7 million announced in 2019. This second tranche of the non-dilutive NIDA grant funding substantially covers our financial costs towards FDA approval. Our team has been working on the IND application with various third parties to receive and review data, and to prepare the IND application for submission. We are pleased to report that we have all of the data needed for the IND application and we are now in the final stages of quality control review of the documents so they can be processed for submission to the FDA. Our goal remains to start human studies this year.
“To further our advancement, we recently completed a private placement with total proceeds of $2.25 million. The private placement was done with two members of the Company’s Board of Directors, Louis Lucido and Joseph Galligan. We believe this investment is further validation of our business strategy, product pipeline, and the growth opportunities that lie ahead which we believe will create significant value for our shareholders.”
