Jul 22nd, 2022 18:30 EST

SAN DIEGO, July 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Revelation Biosciences Inc. (NASDAQ: REVB) (the “Company” or “Revelation”), a clinical-stage life sciences company that is focused on the development of immunologic‑based therapies for the prevention and treatment of disease, today announced topline data for its Phase 1b CLEAR clinical study to evaluate the effect of intranasal REVTx-99b on nasal challenge allergen in participants with allergic rhinitis to rye grass pollen.

The primary endpoint to evaluate the effects of REVTx-99b versus placebo on safety and tolerability was met. Exploratory endpoints for efficacy were not met. This includes no reduction in allergy symptoms (Total Nasal Symptom Score) and no increase in peak nasal inspiratory flow versus placebo. The study enrolled two cohorts: one cohort received study drug prior to nasal allergen challenge (the prophylactic cohort) and the second cohort received study drug after the nasal allergen challenge (the treatment cohort). The Phase 1b, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study design was conducted in Australia. Revelation management plans to evaluate future development of this and other ongoing programs.

About REVTx-99b

REVTx-99b is a proprietary intranasal formulation in development for management of allergic rhinitis symptoms including chronic nasal congestion. The active ingredient has been shown in a Phase 1 clinical study to upregulate a protein, which competes for the native eotaxin receptor, CCR3, preventing eotaxin from recruiting eosinophils and basophils, thereby reducing recruitment of Th2 cells, and attenuating the allergic response.
