In addition to this FUEL trial, Mezzion continues forward in its clinical efforts with the OLE Study, conducted under the auspices of the PHN, that is a long term safety extension study to supplement the FUEL Phase III clinical trial to provide safety information regarding the long-term use of udenafil in adolescents with single ventricle congenital heart disease, and the FALD study, also conducted under the auspices of the PHN, which is measuring the ability of udenafil to impact the effects of Fontan Associated Liver Disease.
Mezzion has been under a scientific publication embargo which has restricted Mezzion from providing specific data results due to contractual obligation until this presentation at the AHA, Scientific Sessions, Late-Breaking Science, in Philadelphia, Pa.
