SelectImmune Pharma Interim report Q2 2021/2022

Report this content


On November 2nd, The SelectImmune Pharma Annual Report for the fiscal year of 2020/2021 was published. It may be found on the company homepage.

On November 24th, The SelectImmune Pharma Annual General Meeting was held. Considering the covid pandemic situation, the AGM was held through mail voting as per temporary Swedish law.

On December 7th, a virtual investors’ meeting was given via link and was well attended. A company presentation was given to follow up from the Annual General Meeting, and an active Q&A session followed. A recording of the meeting is available on the company homepage.



On February 1st, it was announced that SelectImmune Pharma filed a patent application for the treatment of acute pyelonephritis. Acute pyelonephritis or kidney infection, is a severe and common form of urinary tract infection, caused by bacteria that directly infect the kidneys. Efficient new approaches have now been identified and the therapeutic effects confirmed in animal models as a basis for the patent application, strengthening the commitment to develop these substances for future clinical use.

On February 3rd, SelectImmune Pharma reported the successful technology transfer for production of the drug candidate NlpD in its Group II. The protein drug candidate needs adequate, large-scale production technology for continued development towards clinical trials. To achieve this goal, SelectImmune Pharma collaborates with the leading international manufacturer Lonza. The production technology has now successfully been transferred as a first step towards larger scale production.

On February 16th, the company announced the appointment of its Chief Medical Officer and Board member, Dr. Gabriela Godaly, to Professor at Lund University. Dr. Godaly received her PhD in 2000 and has since developed a successful, well-funded research group, focusing on the area of tuberculosis and the development of new alternatives to antibiotics for treating these infections. In addition, Dr. Godaly is a clinical trials expert, from work at Gambro AB as well as Lund University. Dr. Godaly was appointed Chief Medical Officer of SelectImmune Pharma in 2020 and has served on the Board of Directors since 2019.

During the second quarter, SelectImmune Pharma has made significant progress in the areas of clinical trial planning and execution, patent protection and drug development. The planning of further clinical trials in patients with Bladder Pain syndrome is under way. In parallel, the Phase II study in patients with recurrent, acute cystitis is progressing at the Giessen site in Germany. As the study is blinded, updates will not be available until the study is concluded.

In addition, SelectImmune Pharma’s patent portfolio was significantly strengthened with a series of patent approvals during the autumn. A new application was filed just after the reporting period regarding therapeutic use of active ingredients to treat pyelonephritis. These serious kidney infections may lead to urosepsis and securing intellectual property here is important.

The immunomodulators in SelectImmune Pharma’s portfolio also affect pain, as shown in the off-label study of bladder pain. The molecular basis of the effects on pain are a current focus. Our research has confirmed direct links between infection and pain responses, identifying relevant molecular targets.

The process of establishing an efficient manufacturing process for the drug candidate NlpD was pursued during the quarter, resulting in successful technology transfer to our development partner, Lonza Corporation and we are now able to proceed further with steps to scale up production and develop the drug candidate for clinical trials.

 SelectImmune Pharma is actively seeking partners for the different drug candidates. During the second quarter the company participated in the international partnering conference Bio-Europe and received interest from Big Pharma and international service providers, resulting in specific invitations to present the company at the JP Morgan conference in January.

We look forward to continued clinical trials and developing our potent new drug candidates to treat bacterial infections and their sequelae. We thank our colleagues, consultants and partners for their contributions and our shareholders for their confidence and continued support.
