iOnctura (Group)

iOnctura BV, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, was founded in June 2017 as a spin out from Merckand funded by M Ventures. It is a clinical stage biotechnology company developing a pipeline of next generation, differentiated molecules that are at the forefront of pioneering new therapies for the treatment of cancer. Each of iOnctura’s programs harness the combined effect of immune-mediated and direct anti-tumour activity and aim to deliver molecules with superior clinical efficacy and safety in oncology. The company’s lead program, IOA-244, will enter the clinic in Q1 2020. The study is aimed to clinically demonstrate for the first time that a highly selective PI3Kd inhibition not only drives an immunemediated response but also a direct anti-tumoural effect in a stratified patient population across multiple solid tumour indications. The Company’s second molecule is a novel autotaxin (ATX) inhibitor at IND stage for patients with solid tumours burdened with cancer-associated fibrosis. *
