'We can work on any disease and adapt to any emergent pandemic such as the
one related to SARS-CoV2'
 
In its current letter to shareholders, Defence Therapeutics reports the
successful completion of its protein-based COVID vaccine (AccuVAC-PT001)
toxicology studies in non-rodent rabbit model. The AccuVAC-PT001 vaccine is
an injectable vaccine capable of inducing a powerful and sustainable
antibody response in both rodent and non-rodent models. The vaccine
proprietary recipe consists of chemically modifying the COVID Spike protein
with the AccumTM moiety. Defence Therapeutics is currently working on two
different protein-based vaccine candidates. In Parallel, the company
continues the development of their ACCUMTM based cancer treatment R&D. GBC
analyst Julien Desrosiers spoke with Defence Therapeutics CEO Sébastien
Plouffe:
 
GBC AG: For investors that have never heard about Defence Therapeutics, can
you explain what is at the center of your company?
 
Sébastien Plouffe: The highlight of Defence is that it has a proprietary
technology platform with very wide versatility application. For instance,
our AccumTM molecule can be linked to any protein, RNA or DNA molecules and
thus, can be used to target any type of cancer or infectious diseases.
Although the company's main approach was to focus on ADCs, we quickly
applied the AccumTM technology to fight a common and recent pandemic. In
other words, we can work on any disease and adapt to any emergent pandemic
such as the one related to SARS-CoV2.
 
GBC AG: How did your company become involved in the ACCUMTM story and
secured the rights?
 
Sébastien Plouffe: I was looking to acquire a strong technology in the
Biotech sector and in 2016, I was introduced to the AccumTm technology. We
were immediately impressed by its huge versatility and potential that we
have decided to option it. Defence completed the acquisition in May 2020
and since we are actively working to test and develop all kinds of
applications and studies against cancer and infectious diseases.
 
GBC AG: With the ACCUMTM technology, you are currently focusing on two main
development models: ACCUMTM Technology and ACCUMTM Vaccine. Can you
describe in which development stage are the two pathways and in what way
they differ?
 
Sébastien Plouffe: The AccumTM technology is based on the fact that a given
molecule can be modified with a small moiety (called the AccumTM) to
enhance its accumulation in target cells. For example, we can attach the
AccumTM on an ADC to enhance its accumulation in target cell or attach it
to an antigen and deliver it very efficiently to an antigen presenting cell
(example dendritic cells) to prime an immune response.
 
GBC AG: ADC (anti body drug conjugate) are usually tailored made to act on
one specific target. They are developed with the triptych concept of
Protein, Linker and Payload. These three must play their role in perfect
harmony to impact the desired target. How can ACCUMTM circumvent this
issue?
 
Sébastien Plouffe: In fact, AccumTM does not interfere with the function of
any of these components. On the contrary, it works in concert with them by
enhancing the function of that given ADC. In other words, AccumTM does not
block or mitigate the linker, payload activity or antibody specificity. It
just makes sure that the entire package escapes the endosome and makes it
to the intracellular target.
 
GBC AG: Can you specifically discuss the latest success you have achieved
with ACCUMTM?
 
Sébastien Plouffe: We are developing a large pipeline of products. The
AccumTM is being used to develop: i) a DC vaccine targeting 4 different
indications (melanoma, breast cancer, lymphoma and colon cancer), ii) an
ADC against breast cancer, iii) the use of the 'naked' AccumTM molecule as
an anti-cancer molecule against breast cancer, iv) two different COVID
vaccines including one intranasal, and v) two vaccines targeting HPV and
cervical cancer.
 
GBC AG: ADC's FDA approval failure have two main causes: Toxicity and
complexity of the ADCs manufacturing challenges. What can we expect from
ACCUMTM regarding these two main issues?
 
Sébastien Plouffe: The AccumTM will be applied to an ADC that is already
available on the market. We have evidence (using Trastuzumab for example)
that AccumTM does not increase the toxicity of the ADC. On the contrary! By
improving its potency, the potency of the ADCs can be enhanced by lowering
the dosing or shortening the regimen as it would need less of the ADC to
achieve strong outcomes. As such, the toxicity of the product would be
further improved.
 
GBC AG: ADC are very difficult to manufacture and need exclusive equipment,
labs and require a very complex supply chain. As you are currently in the
process of selecting a manufacturing partner, and how has the COVID crisis
changed your expectations and requirements in terms of manufacturing
processes as well as securing the supply chain.
 
Sébastien Plouffe: In fact, we are working on two different models. In the
first model, we wish to develop the ADC program in partnership with a large
pharma as AccumTM can be used to enhance ANY ADC. In parallel, we are
working on developing our own ADC with self-cleavable linkers and AccumTM
moieties as a cleavable payload on their own. We are aware that the
pandemic is delaying all steps of development, but we are actively working
to bypass each of these obstacles by planning our objectives and key steps
in advance.
 
GBC AG: What team of scientists are driving the two pathways and where is
the research conducted?
 
Sébastien Plouffe: We have an established collaboration with the laboratory
of Dr. Moutih Rafei, our VP - Research and Development (Université de
Montréal) who is an immunologist by training and has extensive experience
in the fields of cell therapy, immune-oncology and infectious diseases. In
addition, our co-inventor of the technology, Dr. Simon Beaudoin, a
biochemist by training with a strong expertise in immuno-conjugation and
optimization of ADCs, is actively working on the continued development of
the AccumTM technology at our laboratories located in Montreal (CQIB) and
at Sherbrooke. We are currently expanding our scientific team.
 
GBC AG: As you described ACCUMTM to be scalable and versatile, how will you
select which type of decease you will focus on?
 
Sébastien Plouffe: We have already established our target indications. We
will be working towards a treatment for melanoma, breast cancer, COVID and
HPV. These indications were selected strategically using three different
criteria: i) the widespread of the indication/cancer, ii) absence of a
potent treatment/cure, and iii) the possibility of using our products in
combination with commercially-available immune-checkpoint blockers.
 
GBC AG: Can you explain us how your latest press release is a game changer
for Defence Therapeutics and how well you are financed at the moment?
 
Sébastien Plouffe: The versatility of the AccumTM technology is a game
changer by itself as it allows us to develop a wide range of products
targeting different indications. Defence's strategy is to initiate a
minimum of 2 Phase I trials in 2022 and to co-develop some products in
partnership with large pharmas. We are currently well financed, and we may

XPhyto Completes Strategic Acquisition of 3a-diagnostics GmbH

The acquisition positions XPhyto to be a leading Biosensor producer integrating thin film technology with 3a-diagnostics biosensor technology

The acquisition of 3a, a German-based rapid point-of-care diagnostics firm adds IP and a deeply experienced scientific expertise to XPhyto

Gains technical and business synergies

Secures XPhyto a near-term infectious disease biosensor portfolio and related Intellectual Property

VANCOUVER, BC and UTTENWEILER, GERMANY / ACCESSWIRE / December 6, 2021 / XPhyto Therapeutics Corp. (CSE:XPHY)(OTCQB:XPHYF)(FSE:4XT) (“XPhyto” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the acquisition of 3a-diagnostics GmbH (“3a”), first announced July 20, 2021, is now complete.

“The strategic acquisition of 3a is a transformative step in XPhyto’s commercial strategy,” said Peter Damouni, XPhyto director. “The integration of a highly innovative European biosensor development company places XPhyto at the forefront of the rapid point-of-care test industry, an explosive and technology driven sector. This transaction is the second acquisition since going public in August 2019. XPhyto completed the takeover of Vektor Pharma TF GmbH in September 2019. The corporate strategy of acquiring high-tech biotechnology and pharma companies showcases the potential growth acceleration and synergies for XPhyto’s biosensors, diagnostics and drug delivery portfolios.”

3a is a research-based biotechnology company located Southeast of Stuttgart, Germany, specializing in the development, production and marketing of point-of-care (PoC) test systems. 3a has developed and patented a pipeline of oral biosensor screening tests for bacterial and viral infectious diseases, including stomatitis, periimplantitis, periodontitis, group A strep, and influenza A. The company has developed a high-throughput biosensor screening platform for rapid identification of new biosensor targets. 3a has also received grant funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research for the development of real-time, low-cost and easy-to-use oral screening tests for the rapid detection of influenza A variants that are high-risk pandemic threats such as H1N1 and H5N1.

3a’s COVID-19 portfolio includes “Covid-ID Lab” a rapid point-of-care PCR test platform with a CE mark approved for sale in Europe. Total processing time is 25 minutes with minimal equipment and training. On July 28, 2021, XPhyto and 3a announced the identification of the first saliva activated “in-mouth” biosensor candidates for the detection of a COVID-19 infection. This research is the foundation for the development of the first enzyme-activated biosensors for real-time, low-cost and easy-to-use oral screening applications for the rapid detection of COVID-19.

The Company has recently received an EU commercial registration number to sell its biosensor for mouth related infections and oral inflammation, announced August 30, 2021. This product has application for the global oral health and cosmetic dentistry market. The Global Dental Services Market is expected to be $435 billion in 2021 according to MedicalExpo e-magazine and projected to reach $698.8 billion by 2030 and is growing at a CAGR of 6.4% according to Precedence Research.

“With the integration of 3a’s biosensor technology into our next-generation ODF platform, we are excited to be positioned to transform and dominate the market for rapid screening tests for a wide range of infectious diseases, including COVID-19, with highly affordable rapid oral tests starting in the coming year,” says Prof. Dr. Thomas Beckert, Managing Director of Vektor Pharma TF GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of XPhyto. He adds, “we have several biosensors in the development pipeline and plan to enter the market with low-cost rapid tests for infectious diseases, for which there are currently no rapid tests available, as early as 2022. We are very confident and excited to have the opportunity to revolutionize the diagnostics and rapid test market with products based on our integrated proprietary technologies, that are unique and leading in the world.”

The acquisition of 3a is projected to produce significant synergies in research and development and manufacturing; significantly improved margins for commercial products, such as Covid-ID Lab; as well as expedite commercialization of products in 3a’s near-market development pipeline. 3a’s intellectual property, including patents, know-how, expertise and contracts are included in the acquisition.

Executive management of 3a will be led by Prof. Dr. Beckert, managing director of Vektor Pharma TF GmbH. Prof Dr. Beckert is a German-based scientist and experienced corporate executive who is leading XPhyto’s drug formulation and diagnostics operations.

The Company is not making any express or implied claims that its product has the ability to eliminate, cure or contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS RELEASE IS NOT FOR PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA OR JAPAN OR ANY OTHER COUNTRIES WHERE SUCH DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION MIGHT BE UNLAWFUL

Medios AG resolves on capital increase against cash contributions of up to 10% of the share capital

Berlin, December 2, 2021 – The Management Board of Medios AG (the “Company”) resolved today, with the consent of the Supervisory Board, a capital increase against cash contributions. The capital increase will make partial use of the Authorized Capital 2021. As a result, the Company’s share capital, currently €20,264,991.00, is expected to increase by up to 10% through the issuance of up to 2,026,499 new no-par value bearer shares (“Capital Increase Shares”). The statutory subscription rights of the shareholders have been excluded. The Capital Increase Shares will carry the same rights as the existing shares with the ISIN DE000A1MMCC8 and will be admitted to trading on the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, without a prospectus, with simultaneous admission to the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard).

The Capital Increase Shares will be offered for purchase exclusively to institutional investors in an international private placement by means of an accelerated book building process. The Management Board, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, will determine the placement price and the exact number of new shares to be issued after completion of the placement process. The Company has agreed to a lock-up period of 180 days, with customary market exceptions.

The Company will use the expected net proceeds from the capital increase to finance the cash component of its acquisition of the NewCo Pharma Group.

In addition, the Company is determined to increase the free float continuously in order to ensure a re-inclusion in the SDax at the earliest possible date. For this reason, in the event of significant demand, up to 590,000 additional new shares can be placed under an upsize option (the “Option Shares”, the Capital Increase Shares and the Option Shares collectively the “New Shares”). The Option Shares are part of the 2017 Stock Option Plan, which allows members of the Management Board and senior executives to exercise subscription rights during specified limited time windows. These Option Shares will be created from the Conditional Capital 2017 of the Company. In the event that the upsize option is exercised, the option-exercising members of the Management Board, as well as one additional executive manager who exercised options, have agreed to a lock-up period of 360 days with customary market exceptions as well.

The first trading day of the New Shares is expected to be December 8, 2021. Delivery of the New Shares is also expected for December 8, 2021.

The private placement will commence immediately following the publication of this announcement. The order book is expected to close on December 3, 2021 prior to the start of trading, although the Company reserves the right to close the order book at any time earlier.
