BioClin Therapeutics Completes $50 Million Series B Financing with Addition of New Investors

(San Leandro, California, May 9, 2018) BioClin Therapeutics, Inc., a clinical stage drug
development company developing a first-in-class anti-FGFR3 (fibroblast growth factor
receptor 3) monoclonal antibody for metastatic bladder cancer, announced today
expansion of its Series B financing to $50 million to broaden its clinical development
activities. New investors, Sectoral Asset Management and INKEF Capital, joined existing
investors Sofinnova Ventures, Ysios Capital, HealthCap, Tekla Capital Management
funds, and Life Sciences Partners (LSP) in the round. Since its founding, the company
has raised a total of $79 million.
The proceeds from this financing will be used to advance the company’s lead
development candidate, B-701, for the treatment of patients with metastatic bladder
cancer, or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (mUC). “This financing supports our Phase 2
trials evaluating B-701 both as a single agent, as well as in combination with
pembrolizumab and separately with docetaxel. We anticipate completing enrollment in
these Phase 2 studies by the second half of 2018, with initial data expected by yearend,”
said Stephen Lau, CEO of BioClin Therapeutics.
“We are delighted that Sectoral Asset Management and INKEF Capital have joined the
BioClin investor syndicate. The additional funding will allow the Company to move
forward with the only targeted biologic specific for FGFR3 in clinical development for
bladder cancer,” said David Kabakoff of Sofinnova and board member of BioClin
