Comments from the CEO

”In Q4 Initiator Pharma obtained positive topline data from our Phase 2a clinical trial with IPED2015. This constitutes a major milestone and a clear validation of Initiator Pharma’s lean and effective performance as a value creating biotech company, now with an emerging pipeline of two Phase 2 assets within commercially attractive indications where there is a high unmet medical need. 2020 will be a truly exciting year with a series of upcoming inflection events in the near to mid-term future”
