Investment summary

Oasmia is focused on developing improved formulations of well-established cancer drugs through the application of its proprietary XR-17 platform. This solubility enhancing technology has received validation though a global partnership deal for lead asset Apealea (Cremophor-free paclitaxel) with Elevar Therapeutics across a variety of cancers. Apealea is approved in Europe for second-line ovarian cancer and Elevar is required to complete two additional studies before an NDA filing in the United States. Oasmia is working on additional nanoparticle formulations, including docetaxel micellar (Phase Ib prostate cancer) and the development of innovative drugs (preclinical stage). In-licensed asset Cantrixil is expected to start Phase II development in ovarian cancer in 2022. Oasmia’s animal health pipeline has two clinical stage assets, Paccal Vet and Doxophos Vet. At 30 June 2021, Oasmia had net cash of SEK176.3m, giving a cash runaway into FY23.

Industry outlook

Despite a slew of novel cancer drugs transforming care for many oncology indications, established chemotherapy regimens remain a cornerstone of treatment. Oasmia’s XR-17 technology is applicable to any solubility limited drug, which includes 10–15 different cytostatic agents, and can potentially provide an improved formulation and profile.
