The phase I/II study in patients with bladder cancer addresses the safety of our drug candidate Alpha1H and measures biomarkers of efficacy. The protocol is designed for rapid evaluation, as the patients are under treatment for only one month each. So far, even though the study protocol is blinded and placebo-controlled, we can conclude that the safety profile is excellent.

The short-term effects of Alpha1H in this patient group will be evaluated, as soon as all patients have completed the one-month study. In addition, we intend to follow the patients for a longer period of time, to investigate long-term positive effects of Alpha1H treatment. An application to the Czech authorities was therefore filed last year.

Hamlet Pharma is now happy to announce that we have been granted permission to follow the treated patients and the placebo group for two years, after completion of the initial study.

This follow up is essential to understand if Alpha1H has long term positive effects on bladder cancer in this patients group” says Professor Catharina Svanborg, Chairman of the Board.

A very important piece of the clinical trial puzzle; an important milestone for the company” says Mats Persson, CEO.
