Oncology Venture rights issue January 2018

Oncology Venture Sweden AB is raising capital to fuel the further development of the company’s pipeline of six cancer drugs.

Some of the main activities the new funds will support are:

  • The early data from the ongoing LiPlaCis® clinical trials, where LiPlaCis® is to treat women with hard-to-treat breast cancer, were better than initially expected. As a result, the LiPlaCis® selection group has expanded to include a larger number of patients.
  • A possible increase in ownership of the tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) from Novartis: Oncology Venture holds the rights to increase the ownership stake of the product from 40% to 75%. The board of Oncology Venture will reserve a portion of the proceeds for the possible execution of this option.
  • In addition, if the currently ongoing DRP® analysis of the biopsy data from the TKI-inhibitor from Novartis is positive, Oncology Venture will also use a portion of the issue allowance to prepare an “end of phase two meeting” with the FDA.

Oncology Venture’s Pipeline

About Oncology Venture

Oncology Venture is a biotech company specializing in developing medicines for personalized cancer treatments. The company’s pipeline is solely made up of drugs previously shown to improve some patients’ lives, but which haven’t yet been brought all the way through the needed approval processes. Oncology Venture holds exclusive rights to use the Drug Response Predictor (DRP®), used in the combination with the drugs, to predict which patients are likely to benefit from treatment with the drugs in the company’s pipeline.

The ambition of Oncology Venture is to bring its pipeline drugs to the market as personalized treatments, so only high-likelihood responders will be treated with them. As such, both the business and drug development model are unlike most other companies within the biotech industry, as this approach is expected to be both highly cost and time efficient.
