On July 11, 2013, Rockwell Medical, Inc. (Rockwell Medical) announced top-line results from its long-term CRUISE-1 Phase 3 efficacy study of SFP. Rob Chioini, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Rockwell Medical, said, "We are thrilled with the successful results of this CRUISE-1 efficacy study. In addition to demonstrating statistical significance and meeting the primary efficacy endpoint, the data show that in place of IV iron, SFP is a safe and effective iron replacement therapy that consistently maintains hemoglobin levels without increasing iron stores. These successful results, coupled with the recent positive PRIME study data demonstrating SFP's ability to significantly reduce ESA use, support our belief that SFP will set a new paradigm in iron therapy treatment for hemodialysis patients. We believe SFP is positioned to become the new standard of care in iron therapy. We anticipate confirmatory and successful results from the CRUISE-2 trial, which is nearing completion."
