"We are scouting for contract research organisations (CROs) in Europe which will take the moleucle code named - GRC -1087 - through Phase I and probably Phase II A or early Phase II clinical trials. We might be in a position to announce the CRO in the next three months," Mr Saldanha said. The clinical trials will cost around $1 million.
