Sunstone Life Science Ventures invests in Karolinska Development's portfolio company Forendo Pharma

Dela

STOCKHOLM – July 19, 2019. Karolinska Development's portfolio company Forendo Pharma announces today that Sunstone Life Science Ventures joins the existing international investor syndicate and has made a EUR 5 million investment in Forendo Pharma. Claus Andersson, General Partner from Sunstone, joins Forendo Pharma’s Board of Directors.

With the investment, Sunstone joins the existing international investor syndicate comprising Novo Seeds, Karolinska Development, Innovestor, Novartis Venture Fund, M Ventures and Vesalius Biocapital Partners.

The new financing will enable Forendo Pharma to progress its lead endometriosis program, FOR-6219, an HSD17B1 enzyme inhibitor, into the next phase of clinical studies after the successful completion of its Phase 1a study earlier this year.

Endometriosis is a chronic condition that affects many women of reproductive age and causes repeated pain symptoms, infertility and impaired quality of life. Currently available treatments for endometriosis have limitations in efficacy or cause harmful side effects, due to systemic estrogen depletion. The novel HSD17B1 inhibitor is the first concept aiming for a local effect in the endometriosis lesions.

 “Forendo Pharma has shown reassuring progress the last year and it is very encouraging to see that they successfully continue to attract new capital", comments Viktor Drvota, CEO of Karolinska Development.
