With its FY15 results, Probiodrug provided an update on the lead Phase IIa SAPHIR trial, which is well underway. R&D expenses were up year-on-year reflecting increased activities related to the study. The six-month delay was mainly a result of enrolment difficulties, which is not uncommon in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) studies due to increasing competition for the same early patient population. Importantly, measures taken by the company addressed this issue well, in our view. The final results are likely in late Q117 or early Q217 which, if positive, should enable Probiodrug to seek a partnership deal.
