With key hires in R&D, advisory roles, and business development we are building the organization with the competences needed to be ready for the upcoming milestones - the part 1 of the phase II CORIST study in Q2 2021, followed by a planned readout from the PANTAX Ib study in Q3-Q4 2021. 2021 is certainly an exciting year.”

  • ON JANUARY 28, Scandion Oncology announced that the Company had submitted an amendment to the Danish Medicines Agency regarding the PANTAX study. The amendment is based on the learnings obtained from treating the first 12 patients in the CORIST study and will contribute to an optimization of the PANTAX clinical trials. The processing time for the amendment, on top of the current impact of the COVID-19 pandemic could delay the planned readout from the study into Q4, 2021.
