2cureX AB ("2cureX") hereby publishes the interim report for the second quarter and first half of 2021. The interim report is available as an attached document as well as on the company's website (www.2curex.com). Below follows a short summary of the report.
CEO Fernando Andreu comments
"Driven by the positive results of the TICC trial, and its publication at the ASCO conference, we have accelerated the establishment of our commercial infrastructure in Europe to multiply the access to oncologists and pathologists and get a faster penetration in the market with our first product, lndiTreat® mCRC 3L. As part of this acceleration, we have renewed our commercial leadership team and opened discussions with commercial partners to build a presence in 12 countries by year end.
This increased momentum requires a solid organization and internal processes. The changes we initiated some months ago have culminated with the certification of our ISO 13485:2016 quality management system.
With a higher focus on the market, we have redefined our future product portfolio, to launch multiple lndiTreat® products for each cancer entity, covering different therapy decision-making points and thus expanding our market opportunity. We are proud of having engaged two global leaders in gastrointestinal cancer for our Clinical Advisory Board, which is also a sign of the increasing interest in the oncology community to use lndiTreat® to improve the way cancer care is delivered today.
We are very confident we are on track to achieve our ambitious goals for this year and for 2022.
With a successful warrant subscription in May 2021, the cash position totals to SEK 79 million at the end of Q2 2021 and 2cureX continues to hold a strong financial position that can support the activities and growth ambitions of the current plans."
