Svein Mathisen, CEO of BioInvent, added: "The data presented in this seminal paper more fully explains the tumour inhibition findings obtained in our preclinical program to date. Through this experimental work, the development path for the collaboration partners has been clarified and the potential for TB-403, as a novel treatment for cancer, has been emphasized. I feel confident in my belief that TB-403 will secure a prominent place in the oncology armoury."
