DexTech’s primary drug candidate OsteoDex, for the treatment of skeletal metastases in prostate cancer, mCRPC, has been studied in a clinical phase II study with good results. The company has in extensive preclinical studies shown that OsteoDex also has a very significant tumor cell killing effect in the indication multiple myeloma, even at low concentrations.
In order to collect supplementary / confirmatory data in a clinical study regarding the drug candidate OsteoDex’s effect on multiple myeloma, the Board decided on November 8, 2021 on a new issue of shares with preferential rights for existing shareholders. The resolution was approved by the Extraordinary General Meeting on November 25, 2021. The rights issue comprises a maximum of 4,476,141 shares and may, upon full subscription, provide the Company with a maximum of approximately SEK 58.2 million. The issue proceeds are intended to finance the study in its entirety, which is estimated to last approximately two years from the start of the study. Since the study is unblinded, the Company will, however, be able to communicate part-time results during the course of the study. The company’s primary goal is to enter into an agreement with a licensee regarding OsteoDex. It is the Board’s opinion that complementary positive results will strengthen the possibilities for a favorable OsteoDex CRPC licensing agreement and thereby reflect the fair value of OsteoDex.
