From medical devices to a drug maker, Revive Therapeutics Ltd. (OTCMKTS: RVVTF) (CSE: RVV) (FRANKFURT: 31R), recently updated investors on the Company’s FDA Phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Bucillamine, an oral drug with anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, in patients with mild to moderate COVID-19.

Following the Company receiving positive comments from the FDA in regards to the Company’s request to determine and agree on the Study’s potential new primary efficacy endpoints and the Company’s submission of a Data Access Plan to the FDA, the FDA has accepted the DAP to allow for the unblinding of the pre-dose selection data. The Company will now proceed to unblind the pre-dose selection data to potentially support the amended Study protocol with the new primary efficacy endpoints. The proposed new primary efficacy endpoints may include the rate of sustained clinical resolution of symptoms of COVID-19, which addresses the shift in COVID-19 clinical outcome observed over the course of the pandemic, and, therefore, to have more meaningful study endpoints for the FDA to consider for potential Emergency Use Authorization.

The above companies give investors struggling with the bear market ample upside with recession proof plays that may potentially pop.
