Modus has secured access to bridge financing of up to 7 MSEK

Modus Therapeutics secures access to bridge financing from longstanding investor Karolinska Development.

Access to this funding ensures that momentum of clinical development of Modus’ lead asset, sevuparin, will be enhanced while the company continues to explore licensing and partnership opportunities, it states. These future development plans include preparation for a Phase 2a study evaluating sevuparin for the treatment of sepsis, expected to commence at the end of 2023. The funding will also allow Modus to continue exploring the development of new indications for sevuparin with promising potential such as chronic kidney disease, it states.

The access to bridge financing up to SEK 7.0 million further demonstrates their confidence in the potential of our lead candidate sevuparin for the treatment of sepsis and other conditions with systemic inflammation and allows us to continue to advance plans for our Phase 2a study in sepsis patients whilst furthering preliminary work on other indications, including kidney disease.”

“We are very grateful to the level of commitment shown from our longstanding, largest investor Karolinska Development. The access to bridge financing up to SEK 7.0 million further demonstrates their confidence in the potential of our lead candidate sevuparin for the treatment of sepsis and other conditions with systemic inflammation and allows us to continue to advance plans for our Phase 2a study in sepsis patients whilst furthering preliminary work on other indications, including kidney disease,” says John Öhd, CEO of Modus Therapeutics. “This news follows positive top-line Phase 1b data from our lipopolysaccharide (LPS) provocation study, which will inform the design of the Phase 2a study and provides important clinical validation that may be instrumental for future partnering discussions. We look forward to providing additional updates on the strong potential for sevuparin as a treatment option for patients in an area of high unmet medical need.”
