Highlights during Q4 2023

  • On October 16, Phase Ib PANTAX Trial is successfully completed and establishes the Maximal Tolerated Dose with positive Safety Profile and Pharmacokinetic data.
  • On November 21, Final data from the Phase IIa open-label CORIST part 2 trial shows impressive Overall Survival median of 10.4 months. A subset of patients (17 out of 25) had OS median of 13.4 months. Historical median OS data for the same patient population treated with placebo or best supportive care have been reported in the range of 5-7 months.
  • On November 29, Scandion Oncology was granted new Composition of Matter-patent on lead compound SCO-101 extending its exclusivity until at least 2042.
  • On December 15, Scandion Oncology identifies potentially effective treatment of gastric cancer. Pre-clinical studies have confirmed the potential of SCO-101 to revert gastric cancer cells’ resistance to chemotherapy, making the therapy more effective in clinical practice.

Highlights after the end of the period

  • On January 5, Scandion Oncology receives Notice of Allowance for patent to enhance US patent exclusivity on SCO-101. When granted, the patent will offer a very broad intellectual protection until at least 2037.

  • On January 31, Positive topline Phase IIa data from the CORIST Part 3 trial was reported, and impressive tumor reduction of more than 30% (partial response) was observed in one patient (out of 21 evaluated patients). Median Progression Free Survival (PFS) was 4.6 months in Part 3, superior to the PFS reported in CORIST part 2, and Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR) was 76% after eight weeks of treatment, a significant increase from the 46% CBR from CORIST Part 2

Scandion Oncology (Scandion), the Cancer Drug Resistance Company, discovers and develops first-in-class medicines aimed at treating cancer which is resistant to current treatment options. We are at the forefront of this field, developing novel medicines that address cancer’s resistance against treatment. Our aim is to make existing cancer treatments work better and longer, thereby potentially prolonging and improving the life of patients who would otherwise have a high risk of dying from their cancer.

Globally, close to 10 million patients die every year from cancer and approximately 90 percent of all cancer related deaths are due to cancer drug resistance. Our medicines could be relevant in several different cancers. That makes both our medical and commercial potential significant.

Scandion is based in Copenhagen and its lead candidate, SCO-101, is currently being studied in clinical phase I and II trials. The company is listed on Nasdaq First North Growth Market Sweden (ticker: SCOL).
