Kancera today reports that patient screening to the KANDOVA-study, a combined phase Ib/IIa study of the Fractalkine blocker KAND567 in ovarian cancer patients, has been started at the Karolinska University Hospital.

Kancera reports that patient screening for the KANDOVA-study has been initiated at the Karolinska University Hospital in Solna, Sweden, one of the university hospitals in Sweden, Denmark and Norway that are planned to be part of the study.

About the KANDOVA-study
The KANDOVA-study is a combined phase Ib/IIa study of KAND567 in combination with carboplatin therapy in ovarian cancer patients with relapsed disease. The study is conducted in collaboration with the clinical trials unit of the Nordic Society of Gynaecological Oncology (NSGO-CTU) and is planned to be conducted at the leading university hospitals in Sweden, Denmark and Norway. The primary objective is to evaluate safety and tolerability. The secondary objective is to evaluate evidence of KAND567 treatment efficacy. The long-term objective is to restore sensitivity to platinum treatment and thereby prolong survival. Top line results are expected to be reported during H2 2024.
