WntResearch AB: WntR received approval for faster recruitment in Foxy-5 phase 1 study

WntResearch AB today announces that it has received approval from the Danish Health authorities and the Ethic Committee to treat the second and third patient in a dose level simultaneously. Until now all patients have been treated consecutively. This new amendment will improve our recruitment of patients into the study and thereby strengthen our clinical development plans.

CEO Nils Brünner comments: “We are very happy to be allowed to treat second and third patient simultaneously. This is possible because we have had no toxicity issues with Foxy-5 when administered to the cancer patients.” For further information please contact: Nils Brünner, CEO E-mail: nbr@wntresearch.com Telephone: +45 2614 4708 About Foxy-5 Foxy-5 is an anti-metastatic drug candidate in clinical Phase 1.
