Sareum Holdings* (SAR.L) 0.36p £10.75m

Sareum’s CEO, Dr Tim Mitchell, presented data yesterday demonstrating how SDC-1802 (formerly known as SAR-20351), a novel selective TYK2/JAK1 inhibitor discovered by Sareum, significantly reduces tumour growth in disease models of cancers of the pancreas, colon, skin and kidney, plus B-cell lymphoma. The studies showed that SDC-1802 induces this anti-cancer activity through a novel immunotherapeutic mechanism of action that stimulates the local immune system to attack cancer cells.
“There was a good level of interest directed at novel immunotherapy mechanisms such as TYK2/JAK1 inhibition and we look forward to further discussions with interested parties.”
