FluoGuide A/S, a Danish based company improving precision in surgery, has today been approved for listing on Spotlight Stock Market. FluoGuide will raise capital through an issue of units to reach clinical proof-of-concept for its first product – FG001 – which is lighting up cancer during surgery. The subscription starts on Monday 1st April 2019. The prospectus is available at Spotlight Stock Market (www.spotlightstockmarket.com) and FluoGuide (www.fluoguide.com). Teaser and subscription form will be published on the webpages mentioned above at the start of the subscription period.
FluoGuide – intelligent surgical targetingFluoGuide A/S develops surgical solutions that are expected to reduce suffering for the patient and increase the likelihood of cure as well as reduce costs for the health care system. The first product is the compound FG001, which lights up the cancer and its invasive growth into the surrounding tissue. To begin with, the Company focus on glioblastoma (brain tumor). Common practice causes local cancer tissue to be left behind in up to 50 % of patients undergoing surgery with the intention to completely remove the cancer. In a recently performed non-human preclinical study on eight subjects, additional metastasis was found in four of the eight subjects using FG001 and fluorescent light. This means that in half of the subjects (50 %) traditional white light surgery overlooked cancer tissue that could be seen and removed with FG001. These results demonstrate the potential of FG001 to vastly improve the likelihood of performing radical surgery (removal of all cancer) and thereby improving outcome and survival.
“I am thrilled by the huge interest we have received for our innovative solution to light up cancer during surgery and look forward to bring this product to clinical use for the benefit of patients together with an extraordinary team”, comments Morten Albrechtsen, CEO of FluoGuide
Issue of unitsIn order to add capital, FluoGuide has decided to raise initially approximately DKK 15.9 million before issue costs through an issue of units, prior to the listing at Spotlight Stock Market. The proceeds that FluoGuide is provided through the initial issue of units are primarily intended to finance the proof-of-concept Phase I/IIa study with FG001 as well as recruitment of a basic organization and EMA and FDA consultation. The Board of Directors assesses that the proceeds will be sufficient to finalize proof-of-concept for FG001.
