Data were presented at the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine meeting in Vienna.

Earlier this year, La Jolla reported that LJPC-501 met ATHOS-3's primary endpoint of improving the rate of blood pressure response vs. placebo (69.9% vs. 23.4%, p<0.00001) and the secondary endpoint of improving Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (SOFA) cardiovascular scores from baseline to 48 hours vs. placebo (1.75 vs. 1.28 points, p=0.01) (see BioCentury, March 2 & May 26).
