Posted on: 17 Oct 16

Oslo, October 17, 2016 - reference is made to the announced oral presentation from the phase I bile duct cancer study as late-breaking news at the United European Gastroenterology (UEG) Week. The presentation "Phase I study with photochemical Internalisation (PCI) - a novel technology for treatment of perihilar cholangiocarcinoma" by Dr. Alexander Dechêne, University Hospital Essen, Germany, is attached.

About United European Gastroenterology (UEG)          
United European Gastroenterology, is a professional non-profit organisation combining all the leading European societies concerned with digestive health. The member societies represent over 22,000 specialists, working across medicine, surgery, paediatrics, GI oncology and endoscopy. This makes UEG the most comprehensive organisation of its kind in the world, and a unique platform for collaboration and the exchange of knowledge.

About PCI Biotech         
PCI Biotech is a biopharmaceutical company focusing on development and commercialisation of novel therapies for the treatment of cancer through its innovative photochemical internalisation (PCI) technology platform.  PCI is applied to three distinct anticancer paradigms: fima Chem (enhancement of chemotherapeutics for localised treatment of cancer), fima Vacc (T-cell induction technology for therapeutic vaccination), and fima NAc (nucleic acid therapeutics delivery).

Photochemical internalisation induces triggered endosomal release that is used to unlock the true potential of a wide array of therapeutic modalities. The company's lead fima Chem programme consists of a Phase I/II clinical study in bile duct cancer, an orphan indication with a high unmet need and without approved products. fima Vacc applies a unique mode of action to enhance the essential cytotoxic effect of therapeutic cancer vaccines, which works in synergy with several other state-of-the-art vaccination technologies. fima NAc utilises the endosomal release to provide intracellular delivery of nucleic acids, such as mRNA and siRNA therapeutics, thereby addressing one of the major bottlenecks facing this emerging and promising field.
