About Scandion Oncology and the new share issue
Scandion Oncology was formed as a spin-out company from the University of Copenhagen and the research and development company Saniona AB in 2017 for the purpose of addressing one of the greatest challenges in modern oncology – the effective treatment of cancer which is or has become resistant to the prescribed cancer-fighting drugs. In preclinical animal studies, the company’s leading drug candidate, SCO-101, has been found to significantly enhance the efficacy of certain standard cancer treatments when given in combination. Furthermore, it has been shown in vitro-studies that SCO-101 significantly restores chemotherapy sensitivity in resistant cells.
The company is planning to raise SEK 26 million to finalize the first part of a clinical Phase II study with the candidate drug SCO-101 in metastatic breast cancer patients with drug-resistant cancer. The objective is to demonstrate evidence of the validity of the concept and establish the appropriate dosage in patients. SCO-101 will be administrated in combination with the cancer drug Paclitaxel in this Phase II clinical trial. The company expects to complete the Phase II clinical trials during Q4 2020.
Nils Brünner, CEO of Scandion Oncology, commented:
“The primary reason for the large number of cancer-related deaths is drug resistance, which means that the cancer cells develop resistance to the cancer medication. The situation at the present time is that there are no drugs in clinical usage, which specifically targets the resistance to cancer medication.
I am therefore very excited about the opportunity to bring our basic research results forward to cancer patient treatment. With SCO-101, which is a safe oral drug to be taken once a day, I finally see a great opportunity to introduce a paradigm shift in cancer treatment. The mission of Scandion Oncology is to significantly reduce the number of patients with incurable drug resistant cancer. My sincere hope is that SCO-101 will be the first example on how basic knowledge on drug resistance, the availability of a unique drug screening platform and the development of a new drug class may change the destiny of millions of cancer patients.”
