In the fourth quarter of 2020 we have moved forward with the IndiTreat® colorectal cancer clinical trial (TICC) where the last patient has been enrolled and treated in accordance with the IndiTreat® test results.

2cureX has developed the IndiTreat® (Individual Treatment) test. IndiTreat® establishes thousands of 3D micro-tumors (tumoroids) that are similar to the patient’s tumor and identifies the treatment that most effectively kills the patient’s tumor and the treatment to which the patient is resistant. Immediately after the test, the patient can be offered the selected treatment.
The first IndiTreat® products will be in colorectal cancer. Subsequent products will help patients with ovarian cancer and patients with pancreatic cancer.
The company is listed at the Nasdaq First North Growth Market in Stockholm (symbol: "2CUREX").
