CEO Ole Thastrup comments
“We have started 2019 with great momentum and during the first three months we have been able to achieve several value-driving activities. We have among other things strengthened the organization through the recruitment of a CFO, presented successful interim results from the ongoing validation study in colorectal cancer and in addition expanded the business to be operational in preventive cancer medicine. In parallel with this, we have continued our preparatory activities for the market launch of IndiTreat®. It feels very exciting to have accomplished the above activities and I look forward to seeing the continued development during the year.”
