·Last patient completes last visit in the six-month, placebo-controlled part of study
·18 patients have continued into open-label extension
·Top-line results from placebo-controlled part of study still expected in Q2 2020
Saniona (OMX: SANION), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on rare diseases of the central nervous system, today announces the last patient has completed the last visit in the six-month, placebo-controlled section of a Phase 2a study of Tesomet in hypothalamic obesity (HO).
A total of 18 patients, of the original 21 who started the trial, have now continued into the open-label extension part of the study. The placebo-controlled part of the study remains on track to report top-line results in Q2 2020.
“We are very pleased that this Phase 2a trial of Tesomet is proceeding according to plan, at a time of such uncertainty and disruption around the world,” said Rami Levin, CEO of Saniona. “This study is an important part of the clinical package that Saniona is compiling, as we are rapidly advancing Tesomet towards pivotal clinical trials in the rare eating disorder of Hypothalamic Obesity as part of our longer-term strategy to become a global, commercial-stage company.”
About the Phase 2a study
This is an exploratory, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2a trial in patients with HO, conducted at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Patients have received either Tesomet (tesofensine 0.5 mg + metoprolol 50 mg daily) or matching placebo (2:1 randomization) for 24 weeks. This is followed by an open-label extension study where all patients will receive Tesomet for 24 weeks resulting in a total treatment period of 48 weeks. Saniona expects to report the results from the double-blind part of the study in Q2 2020.
The primary endpoint is overall safety and tolerability, which will be judged from all safety data collected during the study including recorded adverse events, laboratory data, blood pressure and heart rate. The secondary endpoints relate to satiety and appetite; bodyweight; body composition; lipids and metabolic parameters; quality of life; and craving for sweet, salty and fatty foods.
Further details about the trial can be found at ClinicalTrials.gov.

Deficit for Swedish central government in June 20207.7.2020 09:30:00 CEST | Press release
Swedish central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 56.5 billion in June. The Debt Office's forecast was a deficit of SEK 70.5 billion. The deviation is largely due to higher tax income than forecasted. The primary balance was SEK 13.9 billion higher than forecasted. Most of the difference is explained by tax income being approximately SEK 10 billion higher than estimated. Statistics showing the effects of the various tax types are not available at this time. Statistics for May showed, among other things, that the payments of wage taxes and corporate income tax were higher than expected. The Debt Office’s net lending to government agencies etc. were SEK 0.1 billion lower than calculated. Interest payments on central government debt were SEK 0.1 billion higher than forecasted. For the twelve-month period up to the end of June 2020, central government payments resulted in a deficit of SEK 58.0 billion. Central government debt amounted to SEK 1,158 billion at the end of June.

Underskott för staten i juni 20207.7.2020 09:30:00 CEST | Pressemelding
Statens betalningar resulterade i ett underskott på 56,5 miljarder kronor i juni. Riksgäldens prognos var ett underskott på 70,5 miljarder kronor. Skillnaden beror till större delen på högre skatteinkomster än beräknat. Det primära saldot blev 13,9 miljarder kronor högre än prognosticerat. Större delen av skillnaden förklaras av att skatteinkomsterna blev cirka 10 miljarder kronor högre än beräknat. Statistik som visar effekterna inom de olika skatteslagen saknas ännu. Statistik för maj månad visade bland annat att inbetalningarna av löneskatter och bolagsskatt var högre än beräknat. Riksgäldens nettoutlåning till myndigheter m.fl. var 0,1 miljarder kronor lägre än beräknat. Räntebetalningarna på statsskulden var 0,1 miljarder kronor högre än prognos. För tolvmånadersperioden till och med juni 2020 visade statens betalningar ett underskott på 58,0 miljarder kronor. Statsskulden uppgick till 1 158 miljarder kronor i slutet av juni. Utfallet för juli 2020 publiceras den 7 augusti, kl. 09
