On BerGenBio ASA

BerGenBio is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the development of transformative drugs targeting AXL as a potential cornerstone for the treatment of aggressive diseases, including immune-evasive and treatment-resistant cancers. The Company’s proprietary lead candidate, bemcentinib, is a potentially first-in-class selective AXL inhibitor in an extensive Phase II clinical development program focused on combination and single-agent therapy in cancer and COVID-19. A first-in-class blocking anti-AXL antibody, tilvestamab, is in phase I clinical trials. In parallel, BerGenBio is developing companion diagnostic tests to potentially identify patient populations most likely to benefit from AXL inhibition: this should facilitate more efficient registrational trials supporting a precision medicine-based commercialization strategy.

BerGenBio is based in Bergen, Norway with a subsidiary in Oxford, United Kingdom. The company is listed on Oslo Stock Exchange (symbol: BGBIO). For more information visit
