Comments from the CEO

Despite the ongoing pandemic with associated world-widedisturbances of delivery chains,

Initiator Pharma’s third quarter has progressed according to plan. We have continued development of our two major assets’ main assets IPED2015 and IP2018, both clinical phase drug candidates in the field of erectile dysfunction (ED). IPED2015 is our most advanced candidate intended for patients suffering from organic ED, and IP2018 is being developed as a combined treatment for both depression and ED. Both represent First in Class treatments within their indication and are expected to improve the quality of life for a growing number of patients who are not responding to, or cannot be treated with, existing drugs on the market.”
