As part of the formal proceedings Dimitri Dimitriou Chief Executive Officer made the following statement:
“It is important to focus on the progress ImmuPharma has made over the last financial period and the embedded value of the assets. There have been many achievements in 2013, including the grant by the FDA of a new and more attractive agreed protocol for our phase III trial of Lupuzor, the appointment of a very prestigious Scientific Advisory Board for Lupuzor with some of the leading Lupus opinion leaders in the US and Europe and the £50m facility from Darwin. Our Nucant cancer phase I/IIa trial will be reporting results soon. In addition, we recently announced that we have been granted new patents surrounding an “optically pure” version of ImmuPharma’s Nucant family which broadens our usage into other indications. Furthermore, through our collaboration with the CNRS, and announced only this morning, ImmuPharma has provided further details on its access to pioneering research in the Bordeaux region of France centred around novel peptide drugs through the University of Bordeaux and the Institut Européen de Chimie et Biologie (IECB).
Our key focus remains the progress of our lead compound Lupuzor into Phase III and we hope to provide an update in the near future. The Board would like to thank its shareholders for their continued support as well as its scientific advisors and the CNRS for their long standing collaboration.”
