About Scandion Oncology:
Scandion Oncology A/S is a biotechnology company founded in 2017 for the purpose of addressing and tackling one of the greatest challenges in modern oncology – the effective treatment of cancer which contains drug resistant cell clones or which has developed resistance to a previously prescribed cancer-fighting drug. In preclinical animal studies, the company’s leading candidate drug, SCO-101, has been found to significantly enhance the efficacy of certain standard cancer treatments when given in combination. It has been shown in in vitro-studies that SCO-101 restores chemotherapy sensitivity in resistant cells. SCO-101 is now ready for clinical phase II studies in patients with metastatic and drug resistant cancer. Scandion Oncology (ticker: SCOL) was listed on Spotlight, Sweden in November 2018.
