An increased focus on clinical studies

The Board of Directors has decided to implement this Offering to ensure continued successful development in accordance with the company’s business plan and strategy, it states. The purpose of the Offering is primarily to finance the development of the four pharmaceutical projects for preclinical and clinical studies, of which ELC-100 is most advanced.

“The impending capital raise and the planned market listing of the shares give us the opportunity to effectively advance our drug candidates towards patient studies and better opportunities to expose our business to healthcare, capital markets and industry.”

Elicera intends to use the net proceeds for further development of the ELC-100 and ELC-201, further development of ELC-301 and ELC-401, general development work and to bolster working capital and administration.

“Elicera is now entering a new development phase for both our next generation CAR-T and oncolytic virus candidates with an increased focus on clinical studies. The impending capital raise and the planned market listing of the shares give us the opportunity to effectively advance our drug candidates towards patient studies and better opportunities to expose our business to healthcare, capital markets and industry,” says Jamal El-Mosleh, CEO, Elicera.
