Neil Murray, CEO of Redx Pharma plc, said:

 

"Redx has made tremendous progress since its IPO two years ago and 2017 should be a pivotal year as we transition to a clinical stage company.

 

"We expect our Porcupine inhibitor, RXC004, to commence first-in-human trials within the next few months.  This compound shows exciting potential as a monotherapy for difficult to treat cancers, such as pancreatic, biliary and gastric cancer, and also as a combination therapy with Checkpoint inhibitors, which use the body's immune system to attack tumours.

 

"We are preparing our BTK inhibitor, RXC005, for first-in-human clinical trials by the end of the year.  This drug candidate has the potential to transform the treatment of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, the most common form of adult leukaemia.

 

"The new funds we are raising will support the ongoing progress of these important assets as well as the rest of our pipeline and we remain very positive about Redx's prospects."
