Precirix raises EUR 80m in Series B to advance its pipeline of precision radiopharmaceuticals


Brussels, Belgium, 16 March 2022Precirix NV, a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing precision radiopharmaceuticals in oncology, today announces the closing of a EUR 80m Series B financing round led by new investors INKEF CapitalJeito Capital and Forbion as co-leads.


“We are delighted to announce this major milestone and are grateful for the strong investor support. The addition of Inkef, Jeito and Forbion, three leading VC funds in the healthcare sector, significantly reinforces our international shareholder base”, said Ruth Devenyns, CEO of Precirix.The investment will allow Precirix to accelerate its growth trajectory and to further validate and broaden the technology platform.”


Precirix’s platform brings together several unique features and facilitates the development of radiolabelled single-domain antibodies (sdAbs) for multiple targets, in combination with different isotopes and applicability in various settings. The company's lead product candidate, CAM-H2, is currently in a Phase I/II study for the treatment of HER2-positive metastatic breast and gastric cancer. The study allows inclusion of patients with brain metastases, a population in urgent need of effective therapies. Initial imaging data provide confidence in the potential of CAM-H2 to address the unmet medical need in this population. Patients are now being enrolled in the second cohort of the dose-escalation phase, following the absence of any dose-limiting toxicities in the first cohort and a positive review from the Safety Review Committee.


The proceeds of this financing round will fund the development and expansion of Precirix’s pipeline. More specifically, the company will advance CAM-H2 through its ongoing Phase I/II study, and plans to bring additional novel radiopharmaceuticals to the clinic. Precirix will also focus on further strengthening the platform, using its potential to generate new product candidates, linkers and CMC processes.
