NH TherAguix announces a €13 million round of fundraising, led by Bpifrance

 

 

 

Grenoble/Lyon/Paris (France) – 11 April 2019 – NH TherAguix announces the closing of its €13 million Series A round led by Bpifrance, through its InnoBio 2 fund, making its first investment, alongside Supernova Invest, a previous investor, and Omnes and Arbevel, new entrants.

 


NH TherAguix produces and develops its drug candidate AGuIX, for the treatment of solid cancers, with the potential to increase the survival rate of cancer patients, as well as their quality of life when it is combined with radiotherapy.

 


Founded in December 2015, and backed by Pulsalys, the technology transfer acceleration company from Lyon Saint-Etienne, NH TherAguix originates a nanomedicine innovation, the AGuIX drug candidate. This product, thanks to its nanometric structure, allows an IV administration and combines three essential attributes to fight tumours: targeting, imaging and treatment. The AGuIX technology is therefore part of the theranostics concept, which relates to a combination of therapy (radiosensitizing effect) and diagnostics (MRI imaging), and more widely in the personalized medicine of tomorrow.
