Veru (VERU) Q2 2020 earnings review

On Tuesday, Veru received FDA permission to initiate a phase 2 clinical trial to assess the efficacy of VERU-111 in combating COVID-19, the global pandemic disease caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Veru has initiated the study and expects the first patient to be dosed within 2 weeks.
