Exhibit 99.1


Adamis Pharmaceuticals Provides Update on Clinical Study Assessing Tempol for the Treatment of COVID-19


Interim DSMB review expected in late September


SAN DIEGO, July 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ: ADMP) today provided an update on the Company’s ongoing U.S. Phase 2/3 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Tempol as a treatment for COVID-19. The next Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) meeting to review interim data results has been scheduled for late September. The DSMB previously met to evaluate the clinical and safety data from interim analyses in March and June 2022, and both times recommended that the study continue without modification.

The DSMB is comprised of infectious disease experts who independently review the unblinded trial data and make recommendations. The Company will not have access to unblinded trial data until the trial has concluded. At the September meeting, the DSMB plans to evaluate the primary efficacy endpoint, the sustained resolution of COVID-19 symptoms, as well as safety in individuals who are at high risk for disease progression. If the DSMB recommendations indicate that the analysis of the clinical and safety data from the trial demonstrates significant efficacy, Adamis would submit a clinical study report to the FDA and request a meeting to discuss the findings and next steps for continued clinical development. If positive trends are observed in favor of the Tempol treatment group, the DSMB may recommend continuing the study along with the enrollment of additional subjects. If no efficacy is demonstrated, then the Company would likely stop the trial.

“We are committed to continue advancing Tempol for the treatment of COVID-19, especially with the recent increase of cases due to new variants,” said David J. Marguglio, President and Chief Executive Officer of Adamis Pharmaceuticals. “With more than 200 patients enrolled, we believe this next DSMB data review could provide important additional insights into the safety and treatment effects of Tempol, as well as the future clinical path for Tempol.”

About the Trial

Tempol is being evaluated in an ongoing Phase 2/3, adaptive, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to examine the effects of Tempol in subjects with mild to moderate COVID-19 infection. The primary endpoint is the rate of sustained clinical resolution between Tempol and the standard of care versus placebo and the standard of care at Day 14. In addition to the primary endpoint, a number of secondary endpoints will be reviewed including, but not limited to, changes in cytokines and inflammatory markers, hospitalizations, and all cause of mortality. Additional information about the trial can be found on www.clinicaltrials.gov using the identifier NCT04729595.

About Tempol

Tempol (APC100) is a redox cycling nitroxide that promotes the metabolism of many reactive oxygen species and improves nitric oxide bioavailability. It has been studied extensively in animal models of oxidative stress and inflammation. Preclinical studies of Tempol have shown it to have antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant activity. Adamis has licensed exclusive rights under certain patents, patent applications and related know-how relating to Tempol for certain licensed fields including the fields of COVID-19 infection, asthma, respiratory syncytial virus infection, and influenza infection, as well as a therapeutic for radiation-induced dermatitis. The Phase 2/3 clinical trial examining the safety and efficacy of Tempol in COVID-19 patients early in the infection began in September 2021.
