Sunstone Life Science Fund II portfolion Company CMC Contrast AB acquires Oncoral Pharma Aps to further strengthen its product portfolio within oncology. In connection with the acquisition, the company is re-named to Ascelia Pharma AB.

“Through the acquisition, Ascelia Pharma is truly established as a pioneer in developing novel medicinal products to address unmet medical needs for people living with cancer. The acquisition of Oncoral broadens our oncology product portfolio and fits well with our existing lead drug candidate MangoralTM. With Oncoral, we now have two clinical stage medicinal product candidates in our pipeline and both candidates have the potential to become global leaders in their indications as they will have significant advantages compared to currently available products”, says Magnus Corfitzen, Chief Executive Officer of Ascelia Pharma.
