CEO Jeppe Øvlesen has the word

2016 has been an important year for SynAct, partly due to a new share issue and listing on Aktietorget, and partly due to important preparations for the Clinical Phase I study. Preparations have mostly consisted of formulation work and production of AP1189 for use in the phase I study. This was followed by completion of the documentation required to start the clinical study. The ethical and regulatory applications were submitted to the French authorities in December 2016. The design of the Phase I study is complete and the study is scheduled to commence as soon as we have received approval from the authorities. The study will be conducted in France, given that we have worked with the French authorities in the past and have good contacts with them. The results from the study are calculated to be presented at the end of 2017.

At the end of November we were able to announce that we had recruited Dr. Thierry Duvauchelle as Chief Medical Officer with the aim of strengthening the competence of the company in preparation for the clinical study. Dr. Duvauchelle is responsible for the clinical development of our drug candidate. Dr. Duvauchelle has been Head of Paris’s largest Phase I clinic, Aster-Cephac, for many years and has held the position of Corporate VP in SGS, responsible for their Clinical Phase I clinics in France and Belgium. The agreement with Dr. Duvauchelle is therefore very gratifying and with more than 25 years of experience in early clinical development he brings valuable expertise to SynAct, to ensure that we can implement our Phase I program with the greatest possible safety and to the highest standards.
