Hemostemix Announces Exploring Clinical Trial Financing AlternativesOctober 4, 2022
Calgary, Alberta, October 4, 2022: – Hemostemix Inc. (“Hemostemix” or the “Company”) (TSXV: HEM; OTC: HMTXF; FSE:2VFO) is pleased to announce that the Company has commenced discussions with pharmaceutical companies to explore potential clinical trial financing alternatives for its lead product ACP-01 (the “Clinical Trial Financing Alternatives”), after retaining experts in the field of biotech business development who have significant experience completing deals on behalf of pharmaceutical companies with promising companies like Hemostemix.
“Given the published safety and efficacy profile of ACP-01, based on the compassionate treatment of 500 subjects treated for ischemic and dilated cardiomyopathy, peripheral arterial disease, critical limb ischemia, COPD and idiopathic pulmonary hypertension, and vascular dementia, it makes sense to enter discussions with potential partners with the goal of unlocking the value of our lead product ACP-01 for our shareholders,” Thomas Smeenk, CEO, said.
Hemostemix’s discussions with pharmaceutical companies in respect of potential Clinical Trial Financing Alternatives is at a preliminary stage. No Clinical Trial Financing Alternatives have been agreed to among Hemostemix and any other person. No decision on any particular Clinical Trial Financing Alternative has been reached at this time. There can be no assurance that exploring such Clinical Trial Financing Alternatives with pharmaceutical companies will result in any clinical trial financing or any change in Hemostemix’s current operations, financial structure, assets or prospects, that Hemostemix will pursue any particular Clinical Trial Financing Alternative nor that any transaction will be concluded at all as a result of its discussions for Clinical Trial Financing Alternatives. Hemostemix will provide a further update in relation to its discussion and exploration in relation to Clinical Trial Financing Alternatives when and if its Board of Directors has approved a specific transaction, if any, another course of action has been approved by the Board of Directors or the Board of Directors otherwise deems disclosure of its exploration for Clinical Trial Financing Alternatives is appropriate.
