Lund, Sweden - April 12, 2021 - BioInvent International AB ("BioInvent") (Nasdaq Stockholm: BINV) today announced that Oncurious NV has presented data from a phase I dose escalation study of TB-403 in pediatric subjects with relapsed or refractory medulloblastoma (MB) at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).
The conclusion from the phase I study is that the results warrant further evaluation of TB-403 in pediatric subjects with relapsed or refractory medulloblastoma (MB).

BioInvent has no further development costs for the project but has retained rights to 50 percent of future revenues after the deduction of some of the past, and all of the future, development costs related to TB-403.
