CEO Fredrik Persson comments:

During the last quarter of 2020, Prostatype Genomics took several crucial steps in the continued development of the Company, foremost of course the successful listing on First North in November. The listing was the result of a long period of hard efforts and I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to this success. Let me extend a special thank you to both old and new shareholders, as your confidence and support is absolutely crucial to the continued development of Prostatype Genomics. Let me also take the opportunity to welcome all new shareholders once again to the Company. 1 400 new shareholders took part in the rights issue of the listing.

The listing was the foremost but far from only step that was taken during the quarter. The Company continued its transformation from a pure Research & Development company to one that is commercially focused. We carried out several key recruitments during the period, most notably of a new CFO and also of very experienced Marketing & Sales staff based in Europe, and we now have an organization that is very well placed to deliver on the targets that we have set. Our ambition is to remain a small and flexible organization, which means that all employees must be very competent and high capacity. The recruitments that we have undertaken are in line with that ambition.

In the near future, Prostatype Genomics will continue to concentrate our activities on our two focus areas:

  1. to further develop the already very strong scientific basis of our product
  2. to drive sales by building commercial channels, foremost by distribution agreements on priority markets

We have several ongoing studies that are in their finals phases and where data are being compiled. That is the case for the study being performed together with Uppsala University Hospital, and for the work that is now being performed in Taiwan in cooperation with Cheng Gung Memorial Hospital in Taipei. The latter study is close to be unique, given that very few studies have been made with patients of East Asian ethnicity.

Our commercial launch, with an initial focus on Europe, is proceeding according to plan. We can again note that our initial contacts with potential partner and Key Opinion Leaders confirm the large unfulfilled need on the market that Prostatype® serves. Using our technology, Prostatype Genomics can significantly improve the quality of life for many of the patients around the world suffering from prostate cancer, and at the same time contribute to society by lowering health care costs.

It is therefore with great confidence that we are looking forward to intensifying our commercial activities in the coming year.

Both in terms of studies and commercialization, the situation with the Covid-19 pandemic continues of course to create challenges. Regarding parts of the commercialization effort, they have naturally been made more difficult by, e.g., the cancellation of conferences and congresses, and it is a continued challenge to arrange physical meetings with health care professionals. Some parts of the work with external studies also take somewhat longer time than usual, even though the Company and its cooperation partners so far have delivered on time on our commitments. We can note that our handling and mitigation of this difficult situation have exceeded expectations and that the final delays that we have seen are marginal in nature. Therefore, we continue to be confident that we also in the future will be able to deliver on the milestones that we have communicated. The pandemic has had a profound impact on global health care systems, resulting also in longer waiting times for cancer patients. Using Prostatype® creates opportunities for the health care system to more quickly and with higher accuracy determine which patients that need radical treatment, and which patients that should be put on active monitoring. Therefore, resources are freed up and opportunities created for a modern and efficient prognosis of patients suffering from prostate cancer.

Let me conclude by once again expressing my thanks to all the people who contributed to making 2020 such a successful year for Prostatype Genomics. That includes staff, external partners, the Board, and not least our shareholders. I look forward to continuing working together to reach the ambitious goals that we have set for this Company.

Positivt utfall i utvärdering av Epiprotect i Saudiarabien

National Unified Procurement Company (NUPCO) i Saudiarabien har färdigställt en utvärdering av Epiprotect vid 5 stora sjukhus. Utvärderingen som är en del i processen att upphandla Epiprotect i landet gav ett positivt utfall vilket nu är rapporterat till NUPCO som väntas ge en inköpskod för produkten. Inköpskoden som förväntas att registreras inom 2 månader möjliggör beställningar via det nationella inköpsorganet som förser merparten av den saudiska sjukvårdsmarknaden bestående av över 500 sjukhus med förbrukningsvaror.


De 5 sjukhus som deltog i utvärderingen uppskattar deras initiala behov till ca 1500 Epiprotect per månad vilket motsvarar ca 12,6 MSEK per år. Denna förbrukning avser främst behandling av ytliga brännskador och förväntas öka successivt i takt med att fler och fler sjukhus börjar använda produkten. Sjukvårdsinrättningarna som utvärderat Epiprotect är mycket positiva till produkten och har uttryckt sin avsikt att genomföra inköp så snart inköpskoden är genererad.


”Vi har den senaste tiden fördjupat vårt samarbete med vår saudiska distributör bland annat genom förstärkning av säljare och utbildare från vårt mellanösternkontor. Detta har säkerställt det positiva utfallet i utvärderingen och har samtidigt givit en kompetensökning hos våra kunder. Vi har sett att dessa utbildningstillfällen har resulterat i större beställningar och snabbare användning. De nivåer av beställningar som kunderna uttrycker att det finns behov av på kort sikt ser vi som en bra början, men den saudiska marknadens potential är otroligt mycket större. ” Säger Bolagets COO Mårten Skog.
