Karolinska Development’s portfolio company Modus Therapeutics and Imperial College London to conduct clinical study of sevuparin in severe malaria15.6.2021 11:24:44 CEST | Press release
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – June 15, 2021. Karolinska Development AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: KDEV) announces today that its portfolio company Modus Therapeutics has entered into a collaboration agreement with Imperial College London to evaluate the effect of its drug candidate sevuparin in patients with severe malaria. Sevuparin is currently being developed in the indication sepsis/septic shock, a condition that bears resemblance to the systemic inflammatory reaction that occurs in connection with severe malaria infection. Malaria causes more than 400,000 deaths per year and the need for new and effective drugs is therefore great. Severe malaria continues to be a medical challenge in several parts of the world. The disease often affects children and the need for effective drugs is great as malaria can induce a systemic inflammatory reaction leading to multi-organ failure, a reaction similar to that seen in sepsis/septic shock. The purpose of the collaboration announced today is to conduct a clinica
Karolinska Developments portföljbolag Modus Therapeutics och Imperial College London planerar klinisk studie av sevuparin mot svår malaria15.6.2021 11:24:44 CEST | Pressemelding
STOCKHOLM, SVERIGE 15 juni 2021. Karolinska Development AB (Nasdaq Stockholm: KDEV) meddelar idag att portföljbolaget Modus Therapeutics och Imperial College London har ingått ett samarbetsavtal i syfte att utvärdera effekten av bolagets läkemedelskandidat sevuparin i patienter med svår malaria. Sevuparin utvecklas sedan tidigare inom indikationen sepsis/septisk chock, ett tillstånd som bär vissa likheter med den systemiska inflammationsreaktion som uppstår i samband med svår malariainfektion. Malaria orsakar fler än 400 000 dödsfall per år och behovet av nya och effektiva läkemedel är därför stort. Svår malaria utgör fortsatt en medicinsk utmaning i flera delar av världen. Sjukdomen drabbar ofta barn och behovet av effektiva läkemedel är stort eftersom malaria kan inducera en systemisk inflammatorisk reaktion som leder till multiorgansvikt, en reaktion som liknar den man ser vid sepsis/septisk chock. Syftet med det samarbete som annonseras idag är att genomföra en klinisk studie för a
