November 25, 2021
2cureX AB (“2cureX”) hereby publishes the interim report for the third quarter and first nine months 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
“In Q3 2021 we have been focusing on entering distributor agreements in new countries, developing new products and positioning 2cureX even stronger among oncologists in Europe. We have a defined goal of reaching 20 countries and 30 hospitals using IndiTreat® by the end of 2022 – and we are on the right track.
Drug sensitivity testing is filling a gap in the way treatments are decided today. In the last months we have been working together with our distributors in presenting the IndiTreat® test and the results of the TICC trial to oncologists all over Europe. Invariably, the reaction has been of immediate interest, proving that drug sensitivity testing has a high priority in the management of cancer patients. This was also confirmed at our webinar “Precision Oncology, Beyond Biomarkers” early October 2021.
In the field of Medical Technology (MedTech) and In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD), terms and conditions need to be agreed upon with the individual hospitals – a complex process that takes months – before oncologists are able to order a test. This requires local presence in the countries, and that is why expanding our distributor network is so crucial for 2cureX.
In Q3 2021 we have signed two new distribution agreements (Spain and Slovenia), bringing up to eight the total number of countries where we operate. All distributors are working intensively in negotiating with key hospitals in their countries regarding the conditions to start using IndiTreat®.
To speed up the adoption, we have announced the launch of an IndiTreat® Evaluation Program that allows hospitals to use IndiTreat® tests under very favorable conditions. We have also announced the launch in December of our second IndiTreat® test that will support first line therapy decisions for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer.
Finally, we are proud to announce that Dr Andrew Beggs, a top oncology surgeon with long experience using 3D microtumors assays, has joined our Clinical Advisory Board.
The financial development continues to be in line with our expectations, and with a cash position of SEK 72.5 million at the end of Q3 2021, our capital resources support the current activities and growth plans.”
