Faron Pharma to take Clevegen cancer candidate into the clinic this year

Markku Jalkanen, chief executive of Faron Pharmaceuticals Ltd (LON:FARN), spoke to Proactive's Andrew Scott following the release of their interim results.

He says he's looking forward to kicking off the first in-human trial of the firm’s Clevegen cancer candidate later this year.

Clevegen is one of a new generation of drugs that helps to weaken a tumour’s ability to suppress the human immune system.

The focus on oncology comes after disappointing Phase III top-line data from their lead drug, Traumakine for the condition called acute respiratory distress.
