Status report Coegin Pharma – A new approach to cancer therapy

18 December, 2020

Nordic biotech Coegin Pharma is responding to calls for new, innovative cancer therapeutics by offering a novel approach through inhibition of a well-validated target, the cPLA₂α enzyme. Since October 2020, the company has been listed on NGM Nordic SME, and, with an experienced board and management team, Coegin Pharma is executing on its new strategic focus on cancer treatments. BioStock has now published a status report of the company, which can be downloaded below.

In 2021, Coegin Pharma is planning to initiate a phase I/II trial in actinic keratosis (AK), a common precancerous skin condition. The company is developing an effective, less invasive therapy than current treatments and with a better safety profile. The medical need is great for new therapies in AK, which also implies a substantial commercial potential. A first readout from the study is expected already in the beginning of 2022.

Coegin Pharma will expand into other indications, such as basal cell carcinoma, triple negative breast cancer and leukaemia. The company aims to select its systemic drug candidate in Q1 2021.

Inhibition of the cPLA₂α enzyme has also shown promising preclinical results in chronic kidney disease, a project that can potentially be spun out in the future.
