CEO statement

2018 has been an eventful year for Scandion Oncology. Our single most important event was the listing on Spotlight and the associated new share issue during the third and fourth quarter. During 2018, we worked hard to prepare the Company for listing and in November we completed our new share issue, which provided Scandion Oncology with approximately SEK 26 million before financial expenses. I would like to thank everyone who subscribed, for your confidence in Scandion Oncology and our drug candidates. The financing has enabled us to accelerate the development of our business. A significant milestone was reached when the production of the first technical SCO-101 batch produced at Cambrex in Sweden was approved. We have now initiated the manufacturing of the drug substance for clinical use and expect that the final capsules will be available in Q4, 2019. We are in parallel working on the clinical protocol together with the clinical centres and expect to initiate the phase II study during Q4, 2019. We are thus strictly following the pre-set timelines for SCO-101 drug production.

What will happen in 2019

The primary objective for 2019 is to finalize the production (June 2019) and formulation (Q4, 2019) of SCO-101 and in parallel file a Clinical Trial Application (CTA) with the aim of obtaining approval to start Phase II clinical studies in Denmark this year. We are also currently developing so-called predictive biomarkers for SCO-101 efficacy and we expect to start the clinical validation of at least two different predictive biomarkers in connection with the first clinical phase II study. All biomarkers have been or will be sought protected by patent applications.

As the CEO of Scandion Oncology, I am very satisfied and pleased with the latest progress of our activities, where we have followed the plans laid out in the Memorandum. From the above descriptions, it is clear that we have the very best background to reach our goals for 2019. The most important of these are to finalize the production and formulation of SCO-101 and to initiate the planned clinical phase II trial. Thus, 2019 will be an exciting year with important milestones to be reached.

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.
