This, according to chief executive Dr Geert Cauwenbergh, “will accelerate growth and in turn support a return on investment for our shareholders”.
"The positive clinical results recently announced from our phase II dermatology study validate the safety and efficacy of our sd-rxRNA therapeutics in humans. These outcomes coupled with robust preclinical results in our immuno-oncology program, further affirm the company's focused development path,” he told the Biotech Showcase Conference.
“With a much-improved regulatory landscape for the development of cancer therapeutics, we believe that there is great potential for our sd-rxRNA compounds to provide major advances that could change the paradigm in cancer treatments.
“Furthermore, the feedback that we have received, through relationships with leading cancer centers, potential business partners as well as institutional investors, in the context of last week's Biotech Showcase meeting, endorses our sharpened strategy.
“It is our goal to develop novel immuno-oncology treatments to benefit patients as well as our long-term shareholders and business partners.”
