During the first half of financial year 2019, company reported strong progress with its clinical development program and its partnerships. Encouraging data was reported from its lead immunotherapy product candidate efti, with data from its phase I TACTI-mel clinical trial presented at leading industry conferences. In July 2018, Immutep’s investigational new drug (IND) application for efti was accepted by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This marks the achievement of a significant operational milestone for the Company as it enables the clinical evaluation of efti in US clinical trial sites for TACTI-002. Also, during the half year, two new European patents were granted for Immutep. These patents protect efti in combination with a PD-1 or PD-L1 inhibitor and in combination with therapeutic antibodies for treating cancer.

The company’s financial position was strengthened in December 2018 with the U.S. capital raise of US$5.2 million. This was the second capital raise event by using American Depository Shares (ADS) since listing on NASDAQ in 2012. Strategically, this has provided important financial headroom to fund existing clinical development programs and brought U.S. specialist healthcare institutional investors onto the share register. In September and October 2018, the company has received US$ 1.05 million from the exercising of ADS warrants which were issued in July 2017. In August 2018, Immutep received a €1.22 million cash rebate from the French Government for the research and development activities conducted in Europe during the calendar year 2017.
