MetrioPharm Investor Relations News QIV 2018
Retrospect of the year by Dr. Wolfgang Brysch, CEO of MetrioPharm
In 2018, we took a decisive step towards obtaining regulatory approval for MP1032: This year we started our large Phase II clinical trial. Of course I can't tell you about the results of the currently blinded study yet, but we do know: We have almost completed the recruitment of the patients and I would like to thank all our employees for their outstanding work on the study.
Preparations for further studies are already underway and we will keep you informed about all major developments in the coming year.
MetrioPharm also closed a financing round for CHF 20 million in 2018. I was very pleased to meet many of you personally (again) during the course of the year. And I have passed on your positive feedback on the progress of our work to the team - it is a strong incentive for us. Personally, I was delighted that many long-standing shareholders also participated in the new subscription round. We are very grateful for this continued vote of confidence.
I would now like to wish all MetrioPharm AG shareholders who have been with us for many years as well as all new shareholders a Merry Christmas and relaxing holidays.
Dr. Wolfgang Brysch
Chief Executive Officer
