First Patients treated with Organicell Flow through “Emergency Single Patient Compassionate Use” designation
MIAMI, May 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Organicell Regenerative Medicine, Inc. (OTCBB:BPSR), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of regenerative therapies, announced today that on May 11, 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized two Emergency Compassionate Use Investigational New Drug applications (eINDs), each for a single patient severely ill from COVID-19. These critical patients have received immediate administration of Organicell Flow.
Organicell is collaborating with physicians at Landmark Hospital, a network of six hospitals located throughout the Southeast United States, to treat these patients for advanced complications associated with COVID-19. These patients were first treated with Organicell Flow on May 14, 2020 at Landmark Hospital in Athens, GA.
“These two patients who did not meet our Phase I/II inclusion criteria from our previously approved IND will now have the opportunity to get immediate treatment with Organicell Flow under the FDA’s approved eIND,” said Dr. Mari Mitrani, Chief Science Officer at Organicell. “We look forward to working with our partners at Landmark Hospital to try to help these critically ill patients.”
On May 5, 2020, Organicell previously announced plans to begin the first randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, phase I/II multi-center clinical trial of Organicell Flow, investigating the safety and potential efficacy of amniotic fluid sourced components for COVID-19. It is expected that this trial will begin enrollment later in the month.

“I’m extremely proud of what the Organicell team has accomplished since we first started working on this virus in January. We are excited to now be in a position to help patients that are suffering from this horrible disease,” said Albert Mitrani, Chief Executive Officer at Organicell.
