Regeneus has revised expected timing of an osteoarthritis (OA) clinical development licence deal for Progenza in Japan to Q4 CY18 (vs Q218); it is currently in active discussions with several parties. A licence deal would trigger a US$5m milestone payment from partner AGC and would effectively see Progenza commence a Phase II trial in knee OA in Japan. Regeneus is in separate discussions with potential licensees for other indications and territories for Progenza, as well as for its other pipelin
Companies: Regeneus Ltd.
Regeneus is aiming to sign one or more clinical development licence deals for Progenza in the current financial year. It is well placed to achieve this goal, having already granted AGC an exclusive licence to manufacture Progenza for Japan, reported promising signs of efficacy from the successful Phase I trial of Progenza in knee osteoarthritis and been granted a Progenza patent in Japan. Regeneus reported an A$3.3m profit in FY17, thanks to the US$5.5m upfront payment and US$1m milestone from t
Regeneus announced that its Phase I STEP knee osteoarthritis (OA) trial met its primary safety endpoint at 12 months and produced promising signs of efficacy, including clinically meaningful reductions in pain for the majority of patients and improvement in knee cartilage volume. Separately, it has also been granted a key patent that protects Progenza in Japan until 2032. The positive data and patent grant will be helpful as the company seeks to advance licensing discussions for Progenza for OA
Regeneus has entered into a US$16.5m collaboration with AGC Asahi Glass (AGC) for manufacture of Progenza for the Japanese market. Regeneus and AGC have formed a 50:50 JV for clinical development and commercialisation of Progenza in Japan – we expect the JV to sub-license one or more partners to undertake clinical trials in a number of indications in Japan. We welcome the deal, which strengthens Regeneus’s balance sheet and provides significant validation for the Progenza technology and IP. Our
Regeneus anticipates entering a binding arrangement with a manufacturing and commercialisation partner for its Progenza mesenchymal stem cell therapy technology in Japan by the end of the current quarter. Following on from the positive safety review of its STEP Phase I trial of Progenza in patients with knee osteoarthritis, it has already begun procuring donor material in preparation for manufacturing Progenza for a Phase II trial in Japan. Our valuation is virtually unchanged at A$108m (A$0.52/
Regeneus reported that its STEP Phase I trial of Progenza in patients with knee osteoarthritis has completed recruitment and that a review of safety data did not identify any safety concerns. The study will complete in H117 when all patients have completed 12 months follow-up. We believe the positive safety review augurs well for the company’s plan to secure a manufacturing and commercial partner for its Progenza mesenchymal stem cell therapy technology in Japan in the current quarter, which may
The agreement with one of the top five veterinary pharma companies to collaborate on the development of CryoShot Canine is recognition of the good progress that Regeneus has made developing its regenerative medicine products and cancer vaccines. At its recent AGM, Regeneus confirmed that it anticipates winning the much bigger prize of a manufacturing and development partner in Japan for its Progenza off-the-shelf human stem cell product by Q116. We maintain our valuation of A$106m (A$0.51/share)
Regeneus has sharpened its focus on its area of expertise in early-stage development of regenerative medicine products and cancer vaccines. This strategy appears to be bearing fruit, with partnering arrangements for both its human and veterinary off-the-shelf stem cell therapies expected to be finalised before the end of CY15. A partnering deal for Progenza in Japan is likely to be a re-rating catalyst. Our valuation is A$106m (A$0.51/share).

It is currently an exciting time to be invested in smaller companies and for those with a keen eye for detail that can identify companies with financial strength and strong management teams, there is potentially lots of upside available.
