In these past months, its treatment approach has received validation from investors and the scientific community and it is looking forward to the next development stage for both the research and the company.

With greater financial resources, the company expects to conduct an expanded combination trial, engage in supportive preclinical trials and make the considerable investment needed to secure product for pivotal studies and future large scale commercial manufacturing of ilixadencel. These investments are key in increasing the value of ilixadencel.
