The biotech company AdvanceCOR GmbH has successfully closed a further financing round with MIG AG, Bayern Kapital, Bio-M, Hightech-Gründerfonds and KfW bank, amounting to EUR 2.2 million. The company is specialized in inflammatory mechanisms in cardiovascular diseases. This investment will enable AdvanceCOR to achieve further patient studies with the lead product, the platelet inhibitor Revacept®. Up to date, 53 patients have been included and fully dosed in the current phase II study in symptomatic carotid artery stenosis – no relevant adverse effects have so far been observed. Due to the blinded study design, the analysis of efficacy will be done at the end of the trial. The product pipeline will be further expanded and developed. Revacept® is a lesion-specific inhibitor of arterial thrombosis for the treatment of patients with acute coronary syndromes and stroke. Revacept® has the unique feature to potently inhibit the initial steps of platelet activation without affecting general hemostasis.
The lead investor in this financing round is MIG AG, Munich, Germany. Co-investors in the investor consortium are Bayern Kapital, Bio-M, Hightech-Gründerfonds, the founders and KfW Bank.
Both investors, led by MIG AG, and the founders of the company expressed their content about closing the deal. “The present investment will enable further clinical development of projects. We continue to be confident to bring the company to success in a concerted manner with our shareholders.”
