Biophytis has previously announced the top-line results of the SARA-INT study. Data showed that Sarconeos (BIO101) at the highest dose (350 mg bid) demonstrated a clinically meaningful improvement in the 400-meter walk test (400MWT), the primary endpoint of the study. Sarconeos (BIO101) showed a very good safety profile at the doses of 175 mg bid and of 350 mg bid. Based on the SARA-INT results, Biophytis is now preparing the phase 3 program and associated regulatory agency interactions.
