Purpose and goal
The aim of the project was to analyze and evaluate the clinical and market feasibility of Neumovec, a novel patented gene therapy for the treatment of epilepsy. During the project, we have also defined all details related to the planned phase I/IIa clinical validation. The set goals were satisfactorily fulfilled.
Expected results and effects
In the project, we have confirmed the clinical and market feasibility of Neumovec as well as defined all details related to the planned phase I/IIa clinical validation. The results of our analyzes and assessments will provide a basis for our strategic decisions related to the development of the therapy.
Planned approach and implementation
During the course of the project, we have performed an advanced market analysis including, for instance, the competitive landscape, user needs and regulatory aspects. We have also identified potential partners for the planned out-licensing deal and defined the company´s financial expectations connected to it. In addition, we have developed a plan for the following phase I/IIa clinical validation that will be a significant step towards commercialization of the therapy.
