The announced roadshow plans follow the Company’s introduction of its new drug development pipeline first presented during last Friday’s ThromboGenics Research & Development Investor Meeting in London.
Over the past 18 months, ThromboGenics has developed a world class pipeline of disease modifying drug candidates for the treatment of diabetic eye disease. The pipeline consists of THR-409 (ocriplasmin), THR-317 (anti-PlGF), THR-149 (plasma kallikrein inhibitor), which has resulted from a research collaboration with Bicycle Therapeutics, and THR-687 (integrin receptor antagonist), which was recently in-licensed from Galapagos. With that, ThromboGenics will initiate several new clinical trials over the next 3-4 years, starting in 2016.
Next to its ambitious plans in ophthalmology, ThromboGenics is also progressing its commitments in oncology via its spin out Oncurious nv, an emerging oncology company focused on the development of innovative orphan drugs for the treatment of pediatric tumors. Last week’s announcement of the Oncurious partnership with NMTRC in the US, is a last step in the preparative work before initiating a Phase I/IIa clinical program with TB-403 for the treatment of medulloblastoma, a rare, life-threatening pediatric cancer. Further announcements are awaited.
