eTheRNA immunotherapies is developing first in class mRNA immunotherapies for the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. We employ messenger RNA to unleash and boost a patient’s immune response against a tumor or infectious agent. Research shows that this approach results in long lasting clinical remission in cancer patients and protective immunity against infections.
eTheRNA was established in January 2013 as a spin-off company from the ‘Vrije Universiteit Brussel’ (VUB), following the development of its TriMix mRNA technology.
eTheRNA immunotherapies NV (‘eTheRNA’ or ‘The Company’), a clinical-stage company developing immunotherapies from its proprietary mRNA TriMix platform for the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases, today announced that it has successfully raised Euro 34 million in a Series B equity financing round. All existing investors – LSP (the Netherlands), PMV (Belgium), Boehringer Ingelheim Venture Fund (Germany), Fund+ (Belgium) and Omega Funds (USA) – are participating in the round. They are joined by Grand Decade, a BVI subsidiary owned by China Grand Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Holdings Ltd (‘GP(HK)’; HKSE Stock code 00512), BNP Paribas Fortis Private Equity (Belgium), Yijing Capital (China) and Novalis LifeSciences LLC (USA). GP(HK) and eTheRNA have also agreed outline terms for a possible exclusive strategic partnership for mRNA manufacturing, independent research and development, production and commercialization in Greater China.
