BioClin Therapeutics, Inc., Completes $50 Million Series B Financing with Addition of New Investors
BioClin Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical stage drug development company developing a first-in-class anti-FGFR3 (fibroblast growth factor receptor 3) monoclonal antibody for metastatic bladder cancer, announced today expansion of its Series B financing to $50 million to broaden its clinical development activities. New investors, Sectoral Asset Management and INKEF Capital, joined existing investors Sofinnova Ventures, Ysios Capital, HealthCap, Tekla Capital Management funds, and Life Sciences Partners (LSP) in the round. Since its founding, the company has raised a total of $79 million.
The proceeds from this financing will be used to advance the company’s lead development candidate, B-701, for the treatment of patients with metastatic bladder cancer, or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (mUC). “This financing supports our Phase 2 trials evaluating B-701 both as a single agent, as well as in combination with pembrolizumab and separately with docetaxel. We anticipate completing enrollment in these Phase 2 studies by the second half of 2018, with initial data expected by year-end,” said Stephen Lau, CEO of BioClin Therapeutics.
“We are delighted that Sectoral Asset Management and INKEF Capital have joined the BioClin investor syndicate. The additional funding will allow the Company to move forward with the only targeted biologic specific for FGFR3 in clinical development for bladder cancer,” said David Kabakoff of Sofinnova and board member of BioClin Therapeutics.
