SenzaGen förstärker med IR-och kommunikationsansvarig

Lund, den 5 december 2018 – SenzaGen (Nasdaq First North: SENZA) meddelar idag att Bolaget rekryterat Tina Dackemark Lawesson som kommunikationsansvarig. Tina Dackemark Lawesson har lång erfarenhet av IR- och kommunikations-befattningar inom life science-bolag och hon börjar på SenzaGen i december 2018.

“SenzaGen befinner sig i en mycket spännande fas och vi behöver förstärka vår organisation inom såväl IR som strategisk kommunikation. Tina Dackemark Lawesson kommer som kommunikationsansvarig att ha uppdraget att driva kommunikationen gentemot våra prioriterade målgrupper och kommer därmed att ha en nyckelposition på SenzaGen”, säger Anki Malmborg Hager, VD på SenzaGen.

Tina Dackemark Lawesson kommer närmast från en roll som Director Investor Relations & Corporate Communications på kommunikationsutrustningsbolaget Invisio i Köpenhamn, dessförinnan har hon haft liknande befattningar på Cellavision, Enzymatica och Precise Biometrics.

”SenzaGen är ett mycket spännande bolag som med sin teknologi har möjlighet att lämna ett bestående avtryck. Det känns därför extra roligt och utmanande att få vara med och utveckla bolagets kommunikation framöver”, säger Tina Dackemark Lawesson, ny IR- och kommunikationsansvarig på SenzaGen.

Om GARD®

GARD® är en grupp med tester för analys av kemikaliers förmåga att starta en allergisk reaktion hos människa. Genom att analysera hundratals markörer genererar GARD™ stora mängder data och levererar resultat med över 90 procents precision. Detta kan jämföras med dagens standardmetod – tester på möss – som endast uppnår 70-75 procents precision. SenzaGens test kan dessutom kvantifiera den allergiframkallande potentialen för en kemisk substans.

Om SenzaGen

SenzaGen gör det möjligt att ersätta djurförsök med genetiska tester i provrör för att bedöma om de kemikalier vi kommer i kontakt med i vår vardag är allergiframkallande. Det kan till exempel handla om kosmetika, läkemedel, livsmedel och färgämnen. Bolagets patentskyddade tester är de mest tillförlitliga på marknaden och ger mer information än traditionella utvärderingsmetoder. Testerna säljs i egen regi i Sverige och USA, och genom partners i flera andra länder. De närmaste åren kommer bolaget expandera geografiskt, knyta till sig fler distributionspartners och lansera nya, unika tester. SenzaGen har sitt huvudkontor i Lund och dotterbolag i USA.

Informationen lämnades, genom ovanstående kontaktpersons försorg, för offentliggörande den 5 december 2018 kl. 08.30.

About GARD® 

GARD® is a group of tests for assessing chemical skin sensitizers. The tests make use of genetic biomarkers for more than 200 genes which cover the entire immune reaction and are relevant to predicting the risk of hypersensitivity. The tests have over 90 percent reliability.

This compares with the current predominant test method, experiments on mice, which has an accuracy of 70-75 percent. SenzaGen’s tests are also capable of measuring the potency of a substance’s allergenic properties. Consequently, GARD tests provide a much more comprehensive basis for determining whether a substance should be classified as an allergen than current testing methods.

About SenzaGen

SenzaGen makes it possible to replace animal experiments with in vitro genetic testing to determine the allergenicity of the chemicals we come into contact with in our daily lives, such as for example in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food products and dyes. The company’s patented tests are the most reliable on the market and provide more information than traditional evaluation methods. We ourselves sell the tests in Sweden and the USA, and we sell through partners in several other countries. Over the next few years the company will expand geographically, make alliances with more distribution partners and launch further unique tests. SenzaGen has its headquarters in Lund in Sweden and a subsidiary in Delaware USA. For more information visit http://www.senzagen.com

The information was submitted for publication, through the contact person set out above on December 5, 2018, at 08.30.

SenzaGen AB is listed on Nasdaq First North in Stockholm and FNCA is the company’s Certified Adviser. For more information, please visit http://www.senzagen.com

In vitro testing for Respiratory Sensitizers using a genomic biomarker signature and the GARDtechnology platform

The presentations on 4 and 5 December 2018, will give insight into the latest in vitro technology for identifying respiratory sensitizers using human dendritic-like cell lines and genomics.  A thorough explanation of the GARD platform will be covered as well as its versatility and reliability for safety assessment applicable to all industries. Sensitization testing with GARD is based on functional genomics.

The presentation will cover:

  • Development of the genomic-based GARD test platform for skin sensitization hazard, potency classification, and now also respiratory sensitization.
  • Dendritic cells – why they are also relevant for respiratory sensitization.
  • Gene mapping – what genes are in the assay, and how are they relevant for sensitization.
  • How GARD can discriminate between skin and respiratory sensitization and why this is relevant.
  • Update on the development of the SenzaGen R&D pipeline including GARD for materials – testing medical devices, GARD for proteins – classification of protein sensitizers, GARD for mixtures – assessment of complex formulations and Unknown or Variable Composition UVCBs.

Next generation in vitro skin and respiratory sensitization testing using genomics with GARD

The GARD™ platform is a versatile in vitro testing strategy which currently consist of three assays targeting two toxicological endpoints: skin sensitization (GARDskin & GARDpotency) and respiratory sensitization (GARDair). These assays make use of unique genomic biomarker signatures comprising genes involved in pathways known to be immunologically relevant to the sensitization process. Supported by modern technologies for pattern recognition, the large informational content provided by this approach enable for mechanism-of-action based decisions, which becomes evident in a consistently high predictive accuracy
