Infant Bacterial Therapeutics’ (IBT) publishes clinical findings in the British Journal of Gastroenterology on the convincing association of clinical events to the feeding primary endpoint of the ‘Connection Study’

Share

The ‘Connection Study’ on the pharmaceutical grade probiotic IBP-9414 has two independent primary endpoints- the incidence of Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) and the time to a strict definition of Sustained Feeding Tolerance (SFT). SFT is important to reach as early as possible and a critical goal in the neonatal intensive care (NICU) treatment of premature infants. 

Treatment- blind evaluation of the first 641 infants completing the study with use of quantitative statistics revealed significant delays in the time to reach SFT for 23 examined clinical events characteristic of the NICU treatment of premature infants*. The greatest delay occurred in infants with gastrointestinal perforation, hypotension, serious cardiac events and pneumonia (mean delays of 10.1-20.0 days). The time to SFT also strongly influenced the duration of  NICU stay and was associated with events like NEC, retinopathy of prematurity, late onset sepsis and days on antibiotics for systemic use.

This further builds on the previously published data** showing that even a one-day reduction in time to SFT correlates to several clinically meaningful outcomes including reductions in NEC, late onset sepsis, bronchopulmonary dysplasia and antibiotic use. 

“IBT is pioneering pharma grade probiotic development with the aim to prevent life threatening infant diseases. We are very pleased to see that data from our study unveils in hitherto unknown detail the importance of reaching a full enteral feeding, being vital to the short and long term development of the premature infant. I like to emphasize that this is really promising data that further validates our study design. Given that this is a blinded evaluation it is not intended to and can not provide any information on the efficacy of our study drug”. says Staffan Strömberg, CEO of IBT.

NNIT A/S: The Danish Business Authority has issued a decision requiring NNIT to update its accounting treatment of earn-out payments in the annual reports for 2020 and 202128.1.2023 17:18:54 CET | Press release

The Danish Business Authority has conducted a compliance review of NNIT A/S’ annual reports as stated in company announcement 12/2022. Following dialogue with NNIT, the Danish Business Authority has made a final decision affirming that the earn out payment related to the acquisition of Excellis Health Solutions should not be included in capitalized acquisition costs and goodwill, but instead expensed as remuneration as the earn out is in part subject to the selling shareholders’ continued employment during the accrual period. In consequence, NNIT is required to update its accounting treatment of earn-out payment in the annual reports from goodwill to special items as outlined below. A similar approach will be applied to the recognition of earn out payments for other acquisitions, including SCALES, Valiance Partner, HGP Group, SL Controls and prime4services. The technical changes to historical accounting policies will have no impact on total cash flow or the planned divestment of NNIT’s
