Swedish biotechnology company Neogap Therapeutics, which is developing personalised immunotherapy, announces its acquisition of the remaining 30 percent of the shares in its subsidiary, TCER Oncology AB. This acquisition will broaden Neogap’s patent portfolio and strengthen the company’s pipeline of potential drug candidates, further consolidating Neogap’s position in the field.

Previously, Neogap owned 70 percent of the shares in TCER Oncology AB. During the second quarter of this year, the remaining 30 percent was acquired from Rolf Kiessling and Stina Wickström in exchange for Neogap shares.

Rolf Kiessling is well-known for his discovery of NK cells, which have had significant implications in cancer research and the development of cancer therapies.

The acquisition not only expands Neogap’s patent portfolio but also enhances the company’s pipeline of potential candidates for future preclinical and clinical development.
