Company to accelerate clinical development of antibodies IMAB362 and IMAB027 for the treatment of cancer.

Ganymed Pharmaceuticals AG has announced the completion of a EUR 45 million Series E financing from existing investors ATS Beteiligungsverwaltung GmbH, MIG Fond, and FCPB Gany GmbH.

Ganymed will use the proceeds to accelerate the clinical development of its lead program IMAB362, including completion of the ongoing Phase IIa and IIb clinical trials in gastroesophageal cancer, and to prepare this first-in-class antibody for a Phase III study.

Concomitantly, the Company will clinically validate its IVD test, CLAUDETECT™18.2, as a predictive companion diagnostic test to IMAB362.

The financing will also allow Ganymed to conduct a Phase I/II clinical study of IMAB027 in ovarian cancer and develop a companion diagnostic test for this antibody.

“We are very pleased that in the space of just three years, the Ganymed team has made immense progress in the clinical development of its lead program. In all clinical studies done so far, IMAB362 has shown exciting anticancer activity and safety data, suggesting that this antibody may well represent a breakthrough in the treatment of solid cancers,” said Thomas Strüngmann of ATS Beteiligungsverwaltung.

Prof. Rolf Krebs, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Ganymed, commented: “The successful completion of this financing round is a strong testimony to the continuing solid commitment of Ganymed’s investors to the Company. We are truly excited that this financing allows us to accelerate the development of IMAB362, for which we have achieved promising preliminary results in the Phase IIa study earlier this year.”
