NEW YORK, Aug. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Indaptus Therapeutics, Inc. INDP (“Indaptus” or the “Company”) today announced completion of the first cohort of patients who received a single dose in Part 1 of its INDP-D101 trial of Decoy20 and the initiation of a new cohort following review of data by the Safety Review Committee as prescribed by the clinical trial protocol.
