  1. STOCKHOLM, Oct. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Calliditas Therapeutics AB (NASDAQ:CALT) (Nasdaq Stockholm: CALTX) ("Calliditas") today announced that the company now controls 100% of the share capital of Genkyotex SA ("Genkyotex"), after the completion of a centralized squeeze out offer to all minority shareholders.

In Q4 2021, Calliditas plans to initiate a 52-week, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, trial with an adaptive phase 2b/3 design with setanaxib in 318 patients with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC).

In Q4 2021, Calliditas plans to initiate a 52-week, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, trial with an adaptive phase 2b/3 design with setanaxib in 318 patients with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC).

Calliditas will also initiate a Phase 2 proof-of-concept study in head and neck cancer in 2021, which will investigate the administration of setanaxib in conjunction with immunotherapy targeting cancer associated fibroblasts (CAFs).

    "We are delighted to have completed our acquisition of Genkyotex, which means that we now can fully integrate the business and thereby leverage the platform optimally", said CEO Renée Aguiar-Lucander.

    Subsequent to the squeeze-out, Genkyotex has become a wholly owned subsidiary of Calliditas and have been delisted from the Euronext stock exchanges.

    Calliditas was in April, 2021 granted an accelerated assessment procedure on its MAA for Nefecon in IgA Nephropathy and submitted the MAA in May of 2021. With the revised standard assessment timeline Calliditas estimates a potential impact of 3 months on the previously communicated timelines with an expected decision by EMA in the first quarter, 2022.

    "This is the first time that EMA is assessing an application for conditional approval in IgA nephropathy and we acknowledge the need for an in depth review under standard assessment timelines.  We look forward to engaging with the agency to achieve a potential approval for this very deserving patient population as soon as possible." said Renée Aguiar-Lucander, CEO at Calliditas.

    If approved, Nefecon could be available to patients in Europe in mid-2022 and would become the first therapy specifically designed and approved for the treatment of IgAN, and which has the potential to be disease modifying.

    In March 2021 Calliditas filed for FDA approval using the Accelerated Approval Program, based on the proteinuria endpoint as previously discussed with the Agency, reflecting data from the 200 patients in Part A of the NefIgArd trial.

    In March 2021 Calliditas filed for FDA approval using the Accelerated Approval Program, based on the proteinuria endpoint as previously discussed with the Agency, reflecting data from the 200 patients in Part A of the NefIgArd trial.

    In its review of the NDA, the FDA has requested further analyses of the NeflgArd trial data which the company has provided to the FDA. The Agency has classified these analyses as a major amendment to the NDA. The amendment mainly provides additional eGFR and other related analyses as further support of the proteinuria data provided in the NDA submission. The FDA has therefore extended the PDUFA goal date to December 15, 2021.

    "Our NDA for Nefecon is the first time that the FDA is considering an approval on the basis of proteinuria as a surrogate endpoint for accelerated approval in IgA nephropathy, requiring an in-depth review process. We will continue to cooperate closely with the FDA as they complete the review of our NDA," said Renée Aguiar-Lucander, CEO at Calliditas.

We have added significant internal resources as well as entered into some key partnerships, in order to ensure that we are well positioned to initiate commercialization in Q4, subject to a positive outcome of the FDA approval process. 

    During Q2 we also explored avenues to non-dilutive financing by way of a competitive process in order to provide the company with access to additional capital in advance of, as well as post a potential regulatory approval. In parallel we also ran a successful competitive process focused on securing a strong European commercial partner for Nefecon. The result of these processes which was announced in Q3 resulted in over $100m of non- dilutive capital potentially being available to the company, divided between approximately $50m available pre-approval with the remainder becoming available post FDA and EMA approvals and subsequent US commercialization. These processes, together with the accelerated book building procedure raising approximately gross $37m (SEK 324 million) which we completed in Q3, have significantly enhanced our financial strength after the close of Q2."
