Uppsala, October 11, 2022. Dicot reports that the preclinical toxicology studies that are now being conducted, so far show that the drug candidate LIB-01 has a good safety profile.

Dicot is now conducting several toxicology studies within the framework of the preclinical program with the drug candidate LIB-01. Studies of the toxicity of a drug candidate are a necessary and important part of the authorities' approval process for start of clinical studies in humans.

Dicot has performed studies with a subcutaneous formulation and now the first toxicology study with an oral formulation has been conducted. LIB-01 has so far shown to be well tolerated with a good safety profile and no signs of adverse effects have been seen in the animal studies.

A number of studies remain to be conducted before the company's toxicology program is complete.

"These results are very promising and are consistent with our expectation that LIB-01 has a good safety profile. We are now working further with great confidence," comments Elin Trampe, CEO of Dicot.
