Immunovia Interim Report, January-March 2019

STOCKHOLM, April 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- During the first quarter of 2019, we remained focused on our product launch strategy and continued to create value, as we reached several key objectives and took several steps towards the commercialization of IMMraytm PanCan-d, our diagnostic test for early detection of pancreatic cancer.

Another key objective that we reached in the first quarter was the addition of new participants to our PanFAM-1 study, a multicenter prospective validation study for early diagnosis of people with a high risk of hereditary pancreatic cancer. In Q1 2019 we added two additional centers, one in Sweden and one in Spain. Umeå University Hospital in Sweden and Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO Hospitalet) ? Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL) in Barcelona are now part of PanFAM-1 study.

We also took an extremely important step towards on the optimization of the algorithm during Q1. We announced in March that using blood samples that are as fresh as possible, i.e. stored for less than 24 months, increases the test performance and provides optimal results. We were able to attain the relevant samples through our large and growing network of clinical Key Opinion Leaders (KOL). It is imperative to note that we needed samples that best mirror the blood samples that will be used with our final product, finding these fresh samples and gaining access to them is quite difficult and takes time.

With the appointment of Julie Silber as Senior Investor Relations Director early this year we actualized a strategic objective in strengthening the IR role and our shareholder communication capabilities at Immunovia.

We continued to work intensely during the first quarter of 2019 on the preparations for our sales launch targeted for the beginning of 2020.
