Comments from the CEO

”With the initiation of the Phase 1 trial of IPED2015 during Q3:18 Initiator Pharma has made the transformation into a clinical stage company. We have big expectations that IPED2015 will become a first in class oral treatment of Erectile Dysfunction for the large number of patients that do not respond to drugs in the PDE5i class. Contingent on a successful completion on the Phase 1 trial we remain optimistic that we will be able to complete the clinical phase IIa Proof of Concept in the first half of 2019. 

While maintaining full focus on the development program for IPED2015 we are also looking forward to leveraging the expertise within Initiator Pharma by expanding our pipeline with attractive assets that can provide value to the company and shareholders in addition to helping patients with unmeet needs”
