InDex Pharmaceuticals AB Engages PharmaVentures to Facilitate the Licensing of Kappaproct(R) After Phase IIa Trial Achieves Clinical Endpoints Early

OXFORD, England, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- PharmaVentures Ltd, announced today that it has been engaged by InDex Pharmaceuticals AB to advise and assist in out-licensing its first in class therapeutic, Kappaproct (DIMS 0150), for the treatment of steroid resistant / dependent Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). The engagement will utilise PharmaVentures' transactions experience in the healthcare and investment business sectors.

Kappaproct, approved for Orphan Drug Designation in Europe, has recently successfully concluded its third clinical phase II trial for the treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease patients. Due to the highly positive interim results at both one and four weeks after dosing, this trial, which included 34 patients and was conducted as a multi-center study in Sweden and Russia, was concluded early. Kappaproct showed the same excellent safety profile as seen in previous trials.

Kappaproct is currently approved for clinical developmental use as a rectal, single-dose administration. Qualification of the compound for other routes of administration and multiple dosing is underway through an extended toxicology program.

Dr Fintan Walton, CEO, PharmaVentures commented, "PharmaVentures is very pleased to be involved in bringing this groundbreaking technology to the market. InDex are leaders in the field of immunomodulation via Toll Like Receptors."

InDex will be presenting Phase II data at BIO on Wednesday 20th May. See also InDex's Press Release released today:
