Alligator Bioscience AB: Interim report January–September 2021


Description automatically generatedFirst Patient Dosed in Optimize-1 Phase II

“We continued to make great strides in the third quarter of 2021. The first patient was dosed in OPTIMIZE-1, our clinical Phase II study, that will assess the effect of mitazalimab in first line pancreatic cancer. We entered a collaboration with Finnish based Orion Corporation focusing on the discovery of novel immuno-oncology product candidates. With my first full quarter at the helm of this amazing company, I am even more confident in the potential value of our robust pipeline.”
