“We are making steady progress across our clinical portfolio. Particularly, for our novel chemotherapy tablet Oncoral, we signed in September an important clinical collaboration agreement with Taiho Oncology. The collaboration concerns the upcoming global Phase 2 clinical study in gastric cancer with Oncoral in combination with Taiho Oncology’s LONSURF (trifluridine and tipiracil). The agreement shows the potential for Oncoral to be part of a new all-oral treatment regimen for gastric cancer.

We also continued the clinical development program and the commercial preparations for Orviglance, our diagnostic drug currently in Phase 3. The progress continued after the quarter when we completed our food effect study with Orviglance in October”, said Magnus Corfitzen, CEO at Ascelia Pharma.
