About Xspray Pharma
Xspray Pharma AB (publ) is a product development company with multiple product candidates in clinical development. Xspray uses its innovative, patented RightSize technology to develop improved and generic versions of marketed drugs, primarily protein kinase inhibitors (PKIs) for the treatment of cancer. The segment is the second largest in oncology, and drug prices are very high.
The company´s innovative technology allows Xspray Pharma to gain entry as the first competitor to today’s original drugs before the secondary patents expire. Xspray’s goal is to become the leader in the development of improved drugs or generic versions of PKIs already marketed for the treatment of cancer, which numbered 39 in 2018. The company’s leading product candidates, HyNap-Dasa, HyNap-Sora and HyNap-Nilo, are stable amorphous versions of the three blockbuster cancer drugs Sprycel® (dasatinib), Nexavar® (sorafenib) and Tasigna® (nilotinib), respectively. The launch of the first product candidate, HyNap-Dasa, is planned to take place in 2021. The substance patent for the original drug Sprycel® (dasatinib) expires at the end of 2020, and the secondary patents in 2026, which offers Xspray’s HyNap-Dasa a period of five years of semi-exclusivity before other competitors gain access to the market.
The company has patented manufacturing technology, equipment and the resulting products. The shares in Xspray Pharma are traded on Nasdaq First North Stockholm.
