Highlights during Q2 2021
- On 21 April, Scandion Oncology announced that Dr. Richard L. Schilsky, a seasoned and highly profiled international leader, was appointed as member of Scandion Oncology’s clinical advisory board
- On 2 June, Scandion Oncology appointed Johnny Stilou as new CFO. He has long experience from both Danish and international listed companies.
- On 24 June, Scandion Oncology reported positive results from the dose-finding part 1 of the CORIST Phase II study. A well tolerated dose of SCO-101 in combination with the chemotherapy regimen FOLFIRI had been determined and the SCO-101 treatment in the optimized combination resulted in notable potentiation of the biological activity of FOLFIRI. Furthermore, from the CORIST study the RAS oncogene has been identified as a predictive biomarker of optimal SCO-101 effect. This discovery will be used to optimize the inclusion of patients in part 2. These positive data have significantly de-risked the further development of SCO-101 and the company is now ready to advance to the proof-of-concept study (part 2) of CORIST.
- On 30 June, Scandion Oncology announced promising preclinical data from the ongoing collaboration with Alligator Bioscience AB, exploring the anti-tumor effects on drug resistant cancer by combining Scandion Oncology’s drug candidate SCO-101 and Alligator Bioscience’s candidate drug mitazalimab together with chemotherapy.
Highlights after the end of the period
- On 19 July, Scandion Oncology announced the date for the Scandion Oncology Capital Markets Day, which will take place on September 8, 2021.
