Stiris Research Announces Completion of Patient Visits in Smallpox Study
Stiris Research Inc. (“Stiris”), an entrepreneurial clinical trial management company focused on the management of Phase I-IIIB trials, announces the completion of all patient visits in the long running smallpox trial.
“Stiris is thrilled that we have completed all patient visits on this eight-year trial. We are excited to see the results as we move into the closeout phase of this trial.

Smallpox is an acute contagious disease caused by the variola virus. The virus can spread directly from person to person, indirectly from an infected person, and through contaminated items. Most people who get smallpox survive. However, some rare types of smallpox are almost always deadly. These more-severe forms are most common in pregnant women and children. Sometimes, smallpox causes vision loss (blindness). (https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/smallpox/symptoms-causes/syc-20353027)
