Having completed our recent IPO we are now completely driven to create life-saving treatments for patients with blood cancers and inherited blood disorders and to create value for our shareholders.”

About ATIR™

During an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) treatment, the bone marrow, harbouring the diseased cells, is completely destroyed and subsequently replaced by stem cells from a healthy donor. After an HSCT treatment it usually takes at least six to twelve months to recover to near-normal blood cell levels and immune cell functions in a patient that has received a transplant. During this period, the patient is highly susceptible and vulnerable to infections caused by bacteria, viruses and fungi. Immune cells in ATIR(Allodepleted T-cell ImmunotheRapeutics) will help fight these opportunistic infections and bridge the time until the immune system has fully re-grown from stem cells in the transplanted graft.

In ATIR, T-cells that cause Graft-versus-Host-Disease (GVHD) are eliminated from the donor lymphocytes, which minimises the risk of GVHD and any related morbidity and mortality. At the same time, ATIR contains potential cancer killing T-cells from the donor that could eliminate residual cancer cells and avoid the return of the disease. ATIR allows the use of haploidentical grafts that are almost entirely depleted of T-cells, which eliminates the need for immunosuppressive drugs. ATIR subsequently provides the patient with immune cells that do not cause GVHD. As a result, ATIR solves the problem of not finding a matched donor in time and has the potential to make curative HSCT a viable option to many more patients.

The Company estimates that approximately 35% of patients who are eligible for, and who are in urgent need of, HSCT will not find a matching donor in time. A partially matched (haploidentical) family donor, however, will be available to over 95% of patients. The use of haploidentical donor grafts without ATIR™ is only feasible in conjunction with severe immunosuppression which renders the patient highly vulnerable to infections with severe clinical complications, resulting potentially in death.

About Kiadis Pharma

Kiadis Pharma is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focused on research, development and future commercialisation of cell-based immunotherapy products for the treatment of blood cancers and inherited blood disorders. The Company believes that its innovative products have the potential to address the current risks and limitations connected with allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Although currently not a viable option for many patients, HSCT is generally regarded as the most effective curative approach to blood cancers and certain inherited blood disorders. The Company expects that HSCT could become a first-choice treatment for blood cancers and inherited blood disorders once current risks and limitations are addressed, thereby meeting a significant unmet medical need with its products.

Currently, ATIR™101 is being tested in an open-label Phase II trial in patients with blood cancer who have not found a matching donor and where a partially matched (haploidentical) family member is used as donor for HSCT.

Kiadis Pharma is based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and its shares are listed on Euronext Amsterdam and Euronext Brussels. Further information can be found at: www.kiadis.com

European Commission Grants New Indication for Soliris® (Eculizumab) for the Treatment of Patients with Refractory Generalized Myasthenia Gravis (gMG)21.8.2017 13:25Pressemelding

Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALXN) announced today that the European Commission (EC) approved the extension of the indication for Soliris® (eculizumab) to include the treatment of refractory generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG) in adults who are anti-acetylcholine receptor (AChR) antibody-positive. Soliris is the first and only complement-based therapy approved in the European Union (EU) for this ultra-rare subset of patients.1-4 Patients with refractory gMG can have difficulties walking, talking, swallowing and breathing normally despite therapies currently used for MG. Exacerbations and crises of their disease may require hospitalization and intensive care and may be life-threatening.5-7 Soliris will be launched for this new indication initially in Germany, and Alexion is evaluating launches in additional EU countries. “Patients with refractory gMG have exhausted multiple the

IntegenX Applauds the Passage of the Rapid DNA Act of 201721.8.2017 12:00Pressemelding

IntegenX Inc., the global market leader for Rapid DNA human identification, applauds the signing into law of S.139 and HR.510, The Rapid DNA Act of 2017. The legislation will allow law enforcement agencies, under standards and guidelines established by the FBI, to perform real-time DNA testing at time of arrest, within booking stations. Similar to how fingerprint analysis has evolved from a paper and ink practice to a point-of-action technology, DNA testing has now become possible in 90 minutes within a booking station, while a suspect is still in custody. With processing times reduced from weeks to less than two hours, the potential to identify or exonerate a suspect quickly will make a meaningful impact on law enforcement. IntegenX thanks U.S. Senate sponsor Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and lead co-sponsor Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) as well as House sponsor Congressman

Boehringer Ingelheim: Advancing anticoagulation care with new data at ESC Congress 201721.8.2017 07:08Pressemelding

Boehringer Ingelheim today announced that it will present important new data on the treatment of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) at the ESC Congress in Barcelona, Spain, 26-30 August 2017. In total, four abstracts have been accepted, investigating different aspects of AF patient treatment. The results of the RE-DUAL PCI™ trial have been selected for one of the Late Breaking Science sessions of the congress. The RE-DUAL PCI™ trial compared dual therapy with triple therapy after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent placement in approximately 2,500 adults with atrial fibrillation. Patients were either treated with dabigatran etexilate (Pradaxa®) and a single antiplatelet agent or with the vitamin K antagonist (VKA) warfarin and two antiplatelets. The dabigatran doses investigated in this trial are the same doses which have already demonstrated effective stroke preven

Study Investigates Performance of Masimo PVi® As Part of Goal-Directed Fluid Therapy During Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery21.8.2017 06:00Pressemelding

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the findings of a recently published study in which researchers at Firat University in Turkey evaluated the performance of Masimo PVi®, a noninvasive and continuous measurement of the dynamic changes in perfusion index (Pi) that occur during respiratory cycles, as the basis of a goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) protocol during laparoscopic bariatric surgery on mechanically-ventilated patients.1 In the study, Dr. Demirel and colleagues sought to evaluate whether using GDFT guided by PVi on morbidly obese patients undergoing laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery might result in less intravenous fluid use without compromising outcomes. They enrolled 60 patients and divided them randomly into control and GDFT groups. The control group’s fluid levels were managed by standard fluid therapy, using mean arterial pressure (MAP) and
