From the CEO

This week, the last study subjects of the ongoing phase 2b study will
be enrolled and start the treatment. We are pleased to have reached
this point, despite this delay in the time plan. The recruitment for
the explorative study will continue without delay and we expect it to
be completed in early December.

The reason for the extended recruitment period is the slower than
expected patient recruitment during the early autumn. Recently, an
intensified advertising has led to an increased patient in-flow.

Generally, the study has progressed well with no practical problems.

We have also started the preparations for the clinical phase 3
programme . Our aim is to cut the lead times between the phase 2 and
3 studies , for example, by scaling up the manufacturing process to
produce material for stability studies and for the clinical studies.

During the autumn, we have spent time and resources on investigating
new potential indications for oxytocin. We have consulted medical
experts and assessed the medical needs of these indications. We have
also developed regulatory and clinical development plans for the
different alternatives. What remains is to assess the probability of
reaching the market within a certain time period, obtain assumed
prices and reach certain market penetration rates. Our aim is to
complete this work and make final decisions before the end of the
