Investment summary

MagForce is moving forward with its strategy to drive uptake and acceptance (in the US and Europe) of its NanoTherm nanoparticle-based therapy for cancer. In Germany, Magforce has six centres commercially capable (three utilised, c50 patients to date) of treating glioblastoma (GBM) patients. To accelerate uptake of NanoTherm treatment in Europe, we expect MagForce to look to expand from Germany into other countries (funded primarily by an up to €35m loan from the European Investment Bank). In the US, its subsidiary Magforce USA is in talks with the FDA to initiate a planned clinical trial in prostate cancer patients (potential launch in 2018). The company expects the trial to initiate in H217; data are expected 12 months later.

Industry outlook

MagForce’s NanoTherm therapy has been designed to directly affect tumours from within, while sparing surrounding healthy tissue. Magnetic nanoparticles are directly injected into a tumour and are then heated in the presence of an external magnetic field generated by specialist equipment (NanoActivator). This can destroy or sensitise the tumour for additional treatment.
