Swedish regulators Approved phase 2 study of ATOS Endoxifen
On June 11, 2021, Atossa Therapeutics, Inc (ATOS) received approval from the Swedish Medical Product Agency (MPA) to initiate a Phase 2 clinical study of its oral Endoxifen for the reduction of mammographic breast density (MBD).
What is MDB?
MBD is an emerging public health issue affecting more than 10 million women in the United States and many more worldwide. Studies conducted by others have shown that MBD reduces the ability of mammograms to detect cancer (sensitivity) and increases the risk of developing breast cancer. Additional studies show a correlation between reducing MBD and a reduction in the incidence of breast cancer.

On June 09, 2021, Atossa Therapeutics, Inc announced the final data from its Phase 2 clinical study of oral Endoxifen administered in the “window of opportunity” between diagnosis of breast cancer and surgery.
The primary endpoint was achieved by reducing 65.1% Ki-67 from an average of 25.6% at the screening to 6% on the day of surgery, a 65.1% reduction.
All adverse events were mild and considered related to the study drug. Endoxifen was considered safe and well-tolerated in this study. No adverse events led to the discontinuation of the study.
As of this writing, we have no recent news which could justify ATOS bad performance on Thursday. we hope that it will end the weekly trading on a positive note.
