The German biotech firm advanceCOR GmbH has closed a further financing round with MIG AG, OCCIDENT, First Capital Partner, Bayern Kapital, and the KfW Bank with almost 3.9 million Euro. A second closing shall take place until end of 2020. New investors are welcome in the new financing round. advanceCOR develops personalised therapies for heart diseases. The main product Revacept® is a specific inhibitor of the pathologic, plaque-mediated thrombosis without affecting the essential endogenous blood homeostasis. With this financing round advanceCOR will organize and complete the partnering of the Phase II Revacept® project.

Two studies in patients with the most common and relevant heart diseases were successfully carried out. The study with symptomatic carotid artery stenosis and stroke showed promising results in ischemic strokes and overall critical events. A further patient study with Revacept® in patients with coronary artery disease and percutaneous intervention and stenting together with the German Centre of Heart and Circulatory Research (DZHK) has also been completed. The data on safety and efficacy are being currently evaluated. With the outcome of this study the anti-ischemic potency and the safety of Revacept® in the crucial indication coronary artery disease can be evaluated with the myocardial biomarker Troponin. The extend of myocardial damage can be reliably evaluated with this established biomarker.

With the results of these two clinicalstudies it might be shown for the first time that additional anti-ischemic protection in high-risk patients can be achieved without additional bleeding complications during surgical and catheter based interventions. This would be an important improvement of the therapeutic options to prevent thrombosis. Currently increased anti-thrombotic protection is always achieved at the cost of increased bleeding.

The lead investor in this financing round is the MIG AG, Munich. Co-investors in the consortium are OCCIDENT, Bayern Kapital, First Capital Partner, the founders and KfW Bank. For a second closing of up to 2 million Euro external investors are invited.

Both investors and founders of the company are delighted about the successful closing. “We are pleased that we could achieve such a financing round of almost 3.9 Mio Euro with our reliable investors in these difficult times of the Corona pandemic. With the capital we will be able to evaluate two crucial clinical studies. The aim is a transaction or cooperation of our lead project with a pharmaceutical company with our promising drug Revacept”, says Prof. Dr. Götz Münch, CEO and founder of advanceCOR.
