London (UK), January 15, 2024 – Vidac Pharma Holdings Plc. (Hamburg and Stuttgart: T9G; ISIN:GB00BM9XQ619; WKN: A3DTUQ), a clinical-stage oncology biopharmaceutical company pioneering a groundbreaking new way of treating cancer, will present its strategy and upcoming milestones to investors in Switzerland on 30 and 31 January, as it continues to develop its pipeline of oncologic and onco-dermatologic drug candidates to help patients with diseases such as Actinic Keratosis (AK), Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL), and a wide range of solid tumors.
“Vidac Pharma’s drug candidates offer an entirely new way of treating cancer, by reversing the abnormal metabolism that characterizes all cancer cells. Our drugs harbor the promise of better treatment for patients across a wide range of cancers, possibly in combination with other treatments, and offer a substantial commercial opportunity,” said Prof. Max Herzberg, CEO of Vidac Pharma, and one of the founding fathers of Israel’s life science industry.
During the meetings, Prof. Dr. Thomas Dirschka, one of the world’s pre-eminent experts in AK, and the founder of CentroDerm GmbH, a world-leading dermatology research institute based in Germany, will participate to discuss Vidac Pharma’s innovative approach, which has the potential to significantly improve treatment for cancer patients.
