Sareum Holdings (SAR) shares ticked up 8.70% to 6.25p following analyst forecast

Last week, analysts at Edison Investment Research said Sareum’s lead asset, the preclinical asset SDC-1801, was “inching closer to completing its preclinical toxicology studies.”

They noted that Sareum’s decision to pursue a capsule alternative to the original suspension formulation (which has resulted in further delays) has “come as a surprise.” Nevertheless, the group said clinical trial application (CTA) filing is expected to come through around mid-2022.

Sareum said the new formulation adds value to the programme (removing the need to develop capsules at a later stage) and is supported by £4.6m of funds raised in 2Q/Q321. 

“Encouragingly, out-licensed asset, SRA737, seems to be gaining traction after Sierra Oncology’s decision to reassess it in combination with other targeted therapies. We expect that the next few months will be crucial for Sareum,” analysts at Edison told shareholders.
