OncoTargeting in new collaboration

OncoTargeting AB (Sweden) and Niels Clauson-Kaas A/S (Denmark) are pleased to announce that they have entered into a formal collaboration. As part of the collaboration Niels Clauson-Kaas A/S has acquired shares in OncoTargeting AB and, together with the two founders Fredrik Lehmann and Ulf Bremberg, now constitute the main owners of the company.

The collaboration between the two companies has been established to strengthen their mutual market share, not only in Sweden and Denmark, but also in the rest of Europe as well as in the USA. With this collaboration, OncoTargeting AB and Niels Clauson-Kaas A/S, will together be able to offer services ranging from early discovery chemistry and process development to the supply of small molecule APIs throughout clinical phases II/III. The companies also offer services within project management, development and validation of analytical test methods, ICH stability studies as well as pre-clinical characterization, pre-formulation, radiolabelling, in-vivo services and autoradiography studies.

OncoTargeting AB and Niels Clauson-Kaas A/S understand and appreciate the difficulties in outsourcing as well as the time consuming process in handling any given project – and the mutual strategy for the collaboration is to be able to support our clients in the pharmaceutical industry with a broad range of services needed in the field of drug research and development. Via partners, OncoTargeting AB and Niels Clauson-Kaas A/S will also be able to assist with raw material sourcing, formulation, micronization and regulatory affairs.

We hope that established as well as new customers will welcome this collaboration, and make use of  our wide range of services.
