“PledPharma has just begun a key phase llb study where the company carries out a clinical trial in humans on its patented substance PledOx. If PledPharma succeeds with this study it can lead to significant opportunities for the company, as PledOx can reduce serious side effects of chemotherapy when treating cancer. Obviously one should be humble, given the development phase the company is in. But if PledPharma succeeds then shareholders will be highly rewarded”, says Staffan Persson.
