Hørsholm, Denmark (28 May 2021) Allarity Therapeutics A/S (“Allarity” or the “Company”) today announces the publication of its Interim Report for the period January – March 2021. The report is available as an attached document and on the company’s website.
Steve Carchedi, CEO of Allarity Therapeutics, stated, “2021 has already been a year full of significant events for Allarity. We have initiated our IXEMPRA® Phase 2 trial in Europe, and we made progress on multiple fronts in our effort to achieve U.S. marketing approval for dovitinib together with its DRP® companion diagnostic, and we remain committed to filing the New Drug Application (NDA) for dovitinib later this year with the U.S. FDA. Moreover, we expanded our preclinical testing of stenoparib’s antiviral properties to include both the British and South African variant of Coronavirus. On the financial side, we have ceased to rely on convertible notes as our main source of funding. Instead, we have announced two new financing events, one a rights issue and one a U.S. $20M investment, the largest in our Company’s history, which is conditional on our company transforming into a U.S. company and listing on the U.S. Nasdaq Stock Market. I look forward to our achievement of further strategic milestones during the remainder of this year.”

About the Drug Response Predictor – DRP® Companion Diagnostic
Allarity uses its drug specific DRP® to select those patients who, by the genetic signature of their cancer, are found to have a high likelihood of responding to the specific drug. By screening patients before treatment, the response rate can be significantly increased. The DRP® method builds on the comparison of sensitive vs. resistant human cancer cell lines, including genomic information from cell lines combined with clinical tumor biology and prior clinical trial outcomes. DRP® is based on messenger RNA from the patient’s biopsies. DRP® has proven its ability to provide a statistically significant prediction of the clinical outcome from drug treatment in cancer patients in nearly 40 clinical studies that were examined, including an ongoing, prospective Phase 2 trial. The DRP® platform can be used in all cancer types and is patented for more than 70 anti-cancer drugs.
