Kancera announces that the FRACTAL top line results are expected to be presented by the end of December 2023


Kancera AB (publ) today announces that the top line results from the FRACTAL study are delayed. The company expects that results will be presented by the end of December 2023.

FRACTAL, a phase IIa study of Kancera’s candidate drug KAND567 in patients with myocardial infarction undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, is being conducted in collaboration with the Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NHS), sponsor of the study.

As previously reported, Kancera and NHS have completed all analyses of data related to the primary and secondary endpoints and the study database has been validated and locked. Before top line results can be reported, statistical analysis and unblinding of data have to be completed, activities conducted by NHS.

Due to a lack of statistical resources within NHS to finalize these remaining activities, Kancera’s presentation of the study results is delayed. Based on the current project status and available resources for the remaining activities, Kancera expects that top line results will be reported by the end of December this year, a delay with approximately two months vs previous expectation.
