Lund, December 21, 2020. Iconovo AB (publ) today announced that the company has signed a development agreement with Monash University for the development of inhaled oxytocin in ICOone®. The agreement verifies the suitability of ICOone for use with innovative pharmaceuticals. Monash University’s Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS) is leading the development project supported by a research agreement with Janssen Pharmaceutica N.V., part of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, and ongoing support from long term partner GSK.

The agreement gives Monash an exclusive global right to use ICOone with oxytocin to prevent postpartum haemorrhage in women giving birth. The agreement has a staged technology access fee of €900,000 that will be triggered by milestones in the clinical trial stage of the project where the first out of three milestones will be paid as an exercise fee to license the device subject to a positive Phase 1 trial that is planned for 2021. In addition, Monash will pay Iconovo for commissioned development work through milestones that are yet to be defined. Royalties from sales over a 20-year period from launch will be in the 5 – 10 % range, as previously communicated for similar agreements.

“We are excited to be contributing with ICOone and our inhalation know-how to such an important medical innovation. There is a huge need to ease administration of oxytocin so that these unnecessary and tragic deaths can be reduced all over the globe. In this project, we all come together to make great things happen,” said Johan Wäborg, CEO of Iconovo.

“For Iconovo, this project will broaden our experience to include innovative development and we look forward to many more such projects where we can use our inhalation experience. It sends a clear signal that these innovation-focused partners see ICOone as a promising inhaler for innovative applications. We are very pleased that we now have commercial royalty bearing agreements for all Iconovo’s three platforms,” continued Johan Wäborg.

Currently, injectable oxytocin is used to prevent postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) after childbirth. It is recommended by the WHO that women should receive an injected dose of oxytocin during the third stage of labor to prevent PPH. An inhaled formulation can provide important advantages such as ease of use, cheaper transport and storage without cold chain and no handling of used needles and syringes. It is particularly important in parts of the world where infrastructure is less developed, like in rural parts of Africa or Asia. To remove the need for a cold-chain and the management of hazardous waste will be a great cost reduction and potentially help eliminate disease spreading by infected needles. Iconovo estimates that there are 115 million live births in the region of interest, whereof 65 million are in rural areas with the greatest need. Iconovo believes that the product will be used in 15 – 20 % of live births in rural areas. In the future there is a possibility that also other markets like USA and Europe will open for inhaled oxytocin as a safer, non-invasivealternative to injections.

“This is an exciting opportunity to expand this collaboration between industry and academia to develop an important healthcare innovation that aims to address a critical unmet medical need,” said Monash University’s Professor Michelle McIntosh, who has pioneered the inhaled delivery of oxytocin. “There is a massive ripple effect when a mother dies – it's a very significant burden for these families and communities, and we are committed to bringing gold-standard care to all mothers.”

ICOone is a single-dose inhaler designed for ultra-low manufacturing cost and easy operation. In these areas, ICOone is particularly suitable since it can deliver one dose at a low price-point and with a mode of operation that requires a minimum of training. Therefore, ICOone supports the potential of delivering an inhaled oxytocin product at an affordable price point comparable to other uterotonic options available in low- and middle-income countries.

About PPH
PPH, a condition of excessive blood loss after birth, is the leading cause of maternal mortality globally, resulting in an estimated 60,000 deaths per year, overwhelmingly in resource-limited countries. Most deaths resulting from PPH could be avoided if access to suitable medical innovation were available. It is effectively managed in developed countries using the gold standard therapy, oxytocin, a manufactured form of a natural hormone. Accessibility to quality oxytocin in resource-poor countries is, however, limited as current products are only available in an injectable form requiring supply and storage under refrigerated conditions and trained personnel to administer the product safely.

About ICOone®
ICOone is a unique, patented dry powder inhaler for single use. The smart design generates an ultra-low manufacturing cost combined with simple and discreet use. It is particularly suitable for short-term treatment and as-needed use as it provides an unsurpassed low treatment cost and price point for treatments with a low number of doses. The simple design also enables patients and caregivers to learn how to handle the inhalers with minimal training. ICOone can deliver large inhalation doses that are well protected against moisture, an important factor for many biomolecules.

About Monash University’s Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS)
MIPS has formed an alliance with a number of industry partners, including Janssen Pharmaceutica N.V., part of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, and GSK, as well as philanthropic organisations such as the McCall MacBain Foundation, to develop a novel, temperature-stable formulation of oxytocin. The 2020 QS World University Rankings by Subject ranked Monash University number two in the world for Pharmacy and Pharmacology. The University has also retained a long-held position as Australia’s and the Asia-Pacific’s number one University for Pharmacy and Pharmacology, and since the subject rankings were introduced in 2011 has consistently ranked in the most elite group of Pharmacy and Pharmacology programs worldwide with an average top ten ranking.

Lund, 21 december, 2020. Iconovo AB (publ) meddelar i dag att bolaget har tecknat ett avtal med Monash University för utveckling av inhalerat oxytocin i ICOone®. Avtalet bekräftar lämpligheten att använda ICOone för innovativa läkemedelsprojekt. Monash University Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS) leder utvecklingsprojektet i ett forskningssamarbete med Janssen Pharmaceutica N.V., del av Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies inom Johnson & Johnson, med löpande stöd från långtida partnern GSK.

Avtalet ger Monash University en exklusiv global rättighet att använda ICOone med oxytocin för att förebygga blödning postpartum hos födande kvinnor. Avtalet har stegvisa betalningar av en s.k. technology access fee på €900,000 som kommer att betalas i tre olika milstolpar under den kliniska utvecklingen, där den första milstolpen kommer betalas som en licensavgift för projektet efter en positiv fas 1 studie som är planerad till 2021. Monash kommer också att betala Iconovo för stödjande utvecklingsarbete i projektet genom ytterligare betalningar som ännu inte har avtalats. Avtalet ger royalties över en 20-årsperiod från lansering som kommer att ligga i intervallet 5 – 10 %, vilket är samma som tidigare kommunicerats för liknande avtal.

“Vi är väldigt glada att kunna bidra med ICOone och vårt inhalationskunnande till en otroligt viktig ny medicinsk innovation. Det finns ett stort behov av att förenkla administrationen av oxytocin så att dessa onödiga och tragiska dödsfall kan reduceras i hela världen. I detta projekt går vi alla samman för att få viktiga saker att verkligen hända” säger Johan Wäborg, VD på Iconovo.

“Det här projektet innebär att Iconovo breddar erfarenheten till innovativa utvecklingsprojekt och vi ser fram emot att jobba med fler liknande projekt där vi kan bidra med vår erfarenhet inom inhalation. Det skickar en stark signal till marknaden att dessa innovations-fokuserade spelare ser ICOone som en passande inhalator för innovativa applikationer. Vi är mycket glada att vi nu har kommersiella royaltyavtal för tre inhalationsplattformar från Iconovo” fortsätter Johan Wäborg.

I dag används injicerat oxytocin för att förhindra blödning postpartum (eng: postpartum hemorrhage PPH) efter barnfödsel. WHO rekommenderar att kvinnor bör få en injicerad dos av oxytocin under det tredje stadiet av förlossningen för att förhindra PPH. En inhalerad beredning ger viktiga fördelar såsom en lättare användning, billigare transporter, lagring utan krav på kylskåpstemperatur och ingen hantering av nålar och sprutor. Det är speciellt viktigt i delar av världen där infrastrukturen är mindre utvecklad, som på landsbygden i Afrika och Asien. Att avlägsna behovet av kylskåpstemperatur och hantering av smittosamt avfall ger en stor kostnadsbesparing och kan potentiellt eliminera risken för sjukdomspridning genom infekterade nålar. Iconovo estimerar att det sker 115 miljoner födslar i det aktuella området per år varav 65 miljoner är på landsbygden där behovet är som störst. Iconovo tror att produkten kan komma att användas vid 15 – 20 % av födslarna på landsbygden. I framtiden finns det även en möjlighet att marknader som Europa och USA kommer öppna upp för inhalerat oxytocin som ett säkrare non-invasivt alternativ till injektioner.

“Det här är en spännande möjlighet att öka samarbetet mellan industrin och den akademiska världen för att utveckla viktiga innovationer inom sjukvården för att lösa angelägna medicinska behov” säger Professor Michelle McIntosh vid Monash University som har varit en pionjär i utvecklingen av inhalerat oxytocin. “Det ger stora ringar på vattnet när en mamma dör – det är en tung börda för både familjen och samhället och vi har tagit på oss ett ansvar för att ge dessa gravida kvinnor tillgång till den bästa behandlingen.”

ICOone är en engångsinhalator designad för en ultra-låg tillverkningskostnad och enkel användning. Inom detta behandlingsområdet är ICOone speciellt lämplig eftersom den kan leverera en inhalerad dos till ett lågt pris och med ett enkelt användningssätt som kräver minimal instruktion. ICOone stödjer därför ambitionen att utveckla ett inhalerat oxytocin till ett rimligt pris jämfört med andra uteruskontrakterande alternativ i låg- och medelinkomst-länder.

Om Blödning postpartum (eng: postpartum hemorrhage PPH)
Blödning postpartum är ett tillstånd av excessiv blödning efter förlossning, är den vanligaste orsaken till mödradödlighet globalt, beräknas orsaka 60 000 dödsfall per år och majoriteten sker i resursbegränsade länder. De flesta dödsfall i blödningar efter förlossning skulle kunna undvikas om lämplig medicinsk behandling fanns tillgänglig. Det behandlas effektivt i resurs-starkare länder genom att använda bästa tillgängliga terapi som är oxitocin, en tillverkad form av ett naturligt hormon. Tillgängligheten till högkvalitativt oxytocin är i dag begränsad i resurssvaga länder av att endast injicerbart oxytocin finns tillgängligt som kräver transport och förvaring i kylskåpstemperatur och utbildad personal för att ge produkten på ett säkert sätt.

Om ICOone®
ICOone är en unik och patenterad torrpulverinhalator avsedd för engångsbruk. Den smarta konstruktionen ger en ultralåg tillverkningskostnad kombinerad med en enkel och diskret användning. Den är speciellt lämplig för korttidsbehandlingar och sällandoserings-behandlingar då den ger en oöverträffat låg behandlingskostnad och prispunkt för behandlingar med få doser. Den enkla konstruktionen gör också att patienter och behandlare kan lära sig hantera inhalatorn med minimal träning. ICOone kan leverera stora inhalationsdoser som är väl fuktskyddade, vilket är viktigt för många biomolekyler.

Om Monash University Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences (MIPS)
MIPS har bildat en allians med ett antal industriella partnerföretag, inklusive Janssen Pharmaceutica N.V., del av Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies i Johnson & Johnson gruppen, och GSK, såväl som filantropiska organisationer såsom McCall MacBain Stiftelsen, för att utveckla nya temperaturstabila formuleringar av oxytocin. 2020 QS World University Rankings by Subject rankade Monash University som nummer två i världen inom Farmaci och Farmakologi. Universitetet har länge hållit en position som Australiens och Asien-Stillahavsområdets främsta universitet inom farmaci och farmakologi, och sedan ranking systemet introducerades 2011 har universitetet konsekvent rankats i elitgruppen inom farmaci och farmakologi globalt med en genomsnittlig topp-10 rankning.

  • The European Patent Office, EPO, issued an Intention to Grant notification for the first European patent for the ICOone inhalation platform (which is already covered by two approved Swedish patents). The patent describes the technology used in Iconovo’s vaccine project.

Significant events after the end of the third quarter

  • Iconovo recruited a Director Project Management and a Director Alliance Management. These roles will focus on customer needs and enable the delivery of high-quality customer projects in a planned, efficient manner.

A word from the CEO

Strongest quarter in three years
During the third quarter, significant progress was made in the projects, and several milestones were achieved and could be invoiced to Amneal and Intas. Sales for the quarter amount to SEK 5.8 million, making it the strongest quarter in three years.

Generic Symbicort
The Amneal project with a generic version of Symbicort in ICOres is now in its final phase and work with the final milestones will take place in the next quarter. The final technical delivery will then take place at the beginning of next year and the customer will begin pharmacokinetic studies. The purpose of the studies is to verify that our product gives the patient the same uptake of drug as the original product.

With the technical delivery completed at the beginning of next year and an assumption that the studies will be positive, we can assume that launch in European countries should be possible from early to mid-2023. This timepoint will also mark the start of royalty income for Iconovo from this product.

Important new agreement
In early July, we were able to announce a new customer agreement with BNC Korea. In connection with signing, a technology access fee of EUR 150 000 was paid. The agreement relates to the development of generic formulations of Seebri and Ultibro, which will be used in our ICOcap inhaler.

It is an important agreement for several reasons. Having active customers and business in Asia will help us establish more projects in this part of the world. The contracted territory currently has about 2.7 billion inhabitants, and they are increasing sharply in both number and purchasing power. In the near future, this part of the world may drastically increase its need and consumption of inhalation drugs. The territory currently accounts for approximately 15% of global Seebri and Ultibro sales, which means that the remaining 85% is left as an opportunity for a new contract.

The agreement also serves as verification that a model with early in-house development of certain interesting formulations makes our projects even more commercially viable. Since this leads to a more finished product, it will also be easier for the customer to enter into an agreement.

Other progress during Q3
Our ICOres project with Intas also made good progress in Q3, with subsequent invoicing of milestones. The Intas project will enter a new phase at the beginning of next year, when a period of technical delivery begins. We expect the entire project to be fully delivered by the end of 2022.

COVID-19
COVID-19 has had minimal impact on Iconovo and the work with our projects is progressing according to plan. In business development, it is also possible to maintain a high level of activity through virtual meetings. We look forward to and are planning to reconnect with our customers via physical meetings as soon as possible.

Investments for increased capacity and customer focus
We have recently made many investments that will help us expand our capacity, put further focus on project implementation, and make us even better in attracting new customers.

During the period July-October, we appointed four new highly qualified people: a formulation specialist, a mechanical design engineer, a personal responsible for commercial partnerships and customer relationships, and a senior project manager.

We are also building efficiency and capacity through several investments, including adaptation of the quality system to meet the requirements of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), acquisition of modern HPLC equipment, and setup of two new formulation labs. The new labs will lead to higher capacity and efficiency. At the same time, several patents, design protection and trademarks have also been registered. Last, but not least, we are making investments in the development of the new ICOpre platform according to plan.

I consider the investments we are now making, absolutely necessary in order to help the company grow, keep up our pace, and increase our commercial success.

Our investments affect our cash flow, but at the same time are balanced by good invoicing. We are currently well capitalised and had SEK 72 million in cash and cash equivalents at the end of September. At our current burn rate, our capital is estimated to last just over 3 years. This takes us into a period when we are expected to receive royalties, which will provide good profitability in the company.

Optimistic about next quarter
We are now keeping the same high pace in our delivery of current milestones for the rest of the year. We therefore expect to be able to invoice to the same extent in Q4 as we were in Q3.

Johan Wäborg, CEO
