SciFluor Life Sciences Raises $30 Million and Names William Koster PhD Former CEO of Neurogen Corp. as Chairman

Apr 22, 2015

PRA Health raises 6M in IPO The company also named William Koster, PhD, a seasoned executive in drug discovery research and early clinical development, as Chairman of the Board. Koster previously served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Neurogen Corp., a NASDAQ-listed biotechnology company engaged in neuroscience R&D. He also spent 30 years with Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. in various roles that included Senior Vice President overseeing worldwide drug discovery research and early clinical development through Phase 2a. SciFluor is focusing its efforts on the strategic use of fluorine to create new drugs with improved potency, selectivity, dosing, and metabolic stability across multiple disease states, including retinal disease, CNS disorders, pain, pulmonary and inflammatory disease. The company recently announced the issuance of two U.S. patents for its potentially breakthrough lead compounds to treat retinal diseases and epilepsy. Treatments for retinal diseases, such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Diabetic Macular Edema (DME), represent a more than $6 billion market opportunity, and those for epilepsy and related disorders are estimated at more than $7 billion. “This successful funding round will enable SciFluor to accelerate the development and commercialization of fluorine-enhanced drug therapies,” said Omar Amirana, MD, SciFluor’s Chief Executive Officer and Senior Vice President at Allied Minds. “We are delighted with the support of our investors and warmly welcome Bill to the Board. His guidance will be tremendously valuable.” Significant participants in the funding round are Invesco Asset Management (Invesco), Woodford Investment Management (Woodford) and Allied Minds, SciFluor’s parent company. SciFluor’s two recent patents included one for SF0166, a small molecule integrin antagonist designed to topically treat retinal disease, including Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Diabetic Macular Edema (DME), via eye drop administration to the surface of the eye. SciFluor also received a patent for SF0034, a potent and selective neuronal potassium channel activator intended to be a significantly improved drug relative to the first-in-class KCNQ2/3 activator drug, ezogabine (POTIGA®). SF0034 is targeted for development in partial-onset epilepsy and potentially for a recently identified orphan disease, a rare disorder known as KCNQ2 pediatric encephalopathy. “SciFluor is successfully making the transition to a clinical development company. The opportunity to place these innovative discoveries into protocols for clinical testing and development is incredibly exciting, and I’m pleased to be a part of the next stage of this company’s commercial development,” said Koster. More information about SciFluor can be found at . SciFluor will be presenting at a Capital Markets Day event to be hosted by Allied Minds on 28 April at Etc. Venues St. Paul’s, 200 Aldersgate St., London. SciFluor will be presenting alongside Allied Minds’ subsidiary businesses Spin Transfer Technologies, Federated Wireless, Allied-Bristol Life Sciences and OptioLabs.
