About Clavis Pharma
Clavis Pharma ASA is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company developing novel anti-cancer drugs and companion diagnostics to identify patient populations that may benefit from treatment with these agents. Clavis’ development pipeline includes novel patented versions of well-established and commercially successful drugs, made using the Company’s proprietary Lipid Vector Technology (LVT), which may offer a better efficacy /safety profile compared to the parent compounds. 

The Company’s lead product, Elacytarabine, is in a randomized, controlled Phase III study (the CLAVELA study) that recently completed recruitment in relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukaemia. The Company is also investigating CP-4200, an azacitidine derivative, in preclinical studies for myelodysplastic syndrome, a disease that is often a precursor to leukaemia. 

Clavis Pharma intends to commercialise its products through strategic alliances and partnerships with experienced oncology businesses and, where and when commercially appropriate, by establishing its own sales and marketing capabilities. 

Clavis Pharma is based in Oslo, Norway and listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange (ticker: CLAVIS).
