Evaluation of Safety, Tolerability and Preliminary Efficacy of EHP-101 in Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis


The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of selected doses of EHP-101 in patients with diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis (dcSSc) administered for up to 84 days (12 weeks).The secondary objectives of the study are to evaluate the:Treatment effect of selected doses of EHP-101 as measured by the Composite Response Index in dcSSc (CRISS) as well as all individual components of the CRISS following treatment of 84 days (12 weeks).
