Dr. Gene Cho, Vice President of Global Strategic Planning at CG Pharmaceuticals, expressed his excitement, “I am thrilled and honored to share this important study milestone and witness the commencement of Phase 2, with an enrollment target of 52 patients. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our investigators, partners, and, most importantly, our patients for their invaluable participation in this critical study.”
