As previously announced, the Company is exploring the possibility of obtaining conditional marketing authorization in Europe for the proposed indication of prophylaxis and/or symptomatic relief of inflammatory diarrhea, initially to be studied in a “long-hauler” COVID-19 recovery patient population in Europe (the “COVID-related indication”).
When discussing post-acute COVID-19 long-hauler symptoms during a January 23, 2021 interview on MSNBC, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases, commented, “We had a workshop in December that my institute sponsored bringing in experts from all over the country and the world. We’re going to make a major investment in research dollars to try and find out the full extent of this… any hints towards what the underlying mechanisms are… what we can do to treat it. We take it very seriously for the simple reason that even if a small fraction, and it appears to be more than just a small fraction of people, have persistent symptoms, when you look at the 24, 25 million people in the United States who’ve been infected – or be it not all of them have had any symptoms – but even those who have symptoms – and globally, when you have approaching a 100 million people having been infected, this could be something that really could be an issue and that’s the reason why we’re taking it very seriously.”
The terms “long-hauler” and “chronic COVID” refer to COVID-19 survivors who suffer with symptoms which may include gastrointestinal distress (i.e., diarrhea, constipation, nausea, pain), fatigue, brain fog, forgetfulness, cardiovascular effects, and arthritis, for an extended period after recovery. It is theorized that these symptoms may result when the immune system in COVID-19 survivors continues to overreact even though the infection has passed.
