SenzaGen granted its first patent for GARD™potency

SenzaGen's patent application that protects the biomarker signature to measure how strongly allergenic a substance is, has now been granted in Europe. The patent is SenzaGen's first patent in the area of potency classification. The patent's validity extends to 2036.

The technology of SenzaGen’s patent is implemented in the company’s testing application, which for the first time makes it possible to measure the allergenicity of chemical substances, so-called potency classification, without animal research.                    

“Getting this patent on the European market is commercially interesting, as there is a ban within the EU on the sale of animal-tested cosmetic products. Furthermore, to quantify how strong the allergenic effect is according to CLP / GHS is a requirement in the EU chemical regulation REACH. As the only company in the world, SenzaGen can now offer an animal-free test method for this”, says Anki Malmborg Hager, CEO of SenzaGen.

SenzaGen’s IP strategy is to protect the company’s technology in all geographically important markets. Already granted in Europe, China and Hong Kong, patent applications for GARD™skin are currently being processed by the patent authorities in countries where animal testing is prohibited or where a ban is expected to be introduced, including the United States, Canada and India. In addition, the patent portfolio includes several ongoing patent applications for GARD™potency and other GARD™ products.

SenzaGen’s GARD™ product portfolio consists of a set of allergy tests with industry leading performance and accuracy. The tests are performed on human cells in test tubes (in vitro) in combination with artificial intelligence, and replace animal experiments for the cosmetics, chemical and pharmaceutical industries for their tests on whether chemical substances in products can be allergenic.

SenzaGen receives new order of SEK 0.5 m from a recurring customer

SenzaGen has received an order for the allergy test platform GARD® valued at approximately SEK 0.5 million. The order is from a recurring customer with its own product development facility. Deliveries are planned to take place gradually during 2019.

The order includes SenzaGen’s animal-free tests to assess whether chemical substances in products can cause allergic reactions to skin (GARD™skin) and in the respiratory tract (GARD™air). SenzaGen is the only company that can offer a test for respiratory allergies – GARD™air. The customer will use the tests during product development to investigate whether chemical substances in their products could be allergenic. The combination of the two tests makes it possible to avoid substances with varying allergenic effects.

The order confirms that SenzaGen’s animal-free method plays an important role for customers with their own product development pipeline, and specifically proves the great interest in GARD™air. The global industry for risk assessment of chemical substances seeks alternative testing methods that are more precise, ethical, provide more information, and in the long run cost-effective.

“This is a strategically important order from a customer who previously evaluated us and is now ordering a larger number of tests. The combination of skin and respiratory allergy tests is a unique offer on the market and gives customers a more comprehensive risk assessment with the possibility to identify risk of varying types of allergies. With a growing interest in our animal-free method and orders that increase in size, we look forward to continuing to contribute to the development of safe everyday products”, says Anki Malmborg Hager, CEO of SenzaGen.

EU highlights SenzaGen’s animal-free test – the world’s first of its kind to assess whether chemical substances can cause respiratory allergies

Today, International Asthma Day is being recognized worldwide. Asthma is a global health problem - over 300 million have a diagnosis and nearly 1 million Swedes are affected – a number expected to increase. The EU has invested in the development of the world's first in-vitro test for respiratory sensitization. GARD®air was developed by the Swedish company SenzaGen and predicts whether chemical substances can cause allergic reactions in the airways. The test, which is based on Artificial Intelligence and Genomics, enables not only development of safe products but also preventative measures – something that has not been feasible before. Prior to the EU election, GARD®air has been chosen by the EU for a special campaign on how EU funds are used to create jobs and growth. 

Genetic background and lifestyle are factors that can cause asthma, but the working environment can also be responsible for the condition. Airway allergies can be caused by handling of harmful substances, such as different types of chemicals, in daily work. Hitherto, there have been no animal- free tests for determining the presence of chemicals that can cause allergic reactions in the airways.

According to the Asthma and Allergy Association, many asthma sufferers are diagnosed already in childhood, but equally a large number are also affected as adults – between 10 and 15 per cent of them get asthma because of their working environment. One reason behind this can be re-activated childhood asthma, but people who have never displayed symptoms previously, can also be affected.

For professionals working in manufacturing plants in the cosmetics, chemical and pharmaceutical industries it is important that the chemicals they handle are tested for how they may affect the respiratory tract. This goes for other professional groups too, such as hairdressers, bakers, painters, floor layers and other types of craftsmen. The focus on healthier workplaces in the EU is a driver for safer products and preventative measures.

There is currently a great need for tests in several different industries. GARD®air, developed by Swedish company SenzaGen, which was launched in the autumn of 2018, makes it possible to predict the risk of causing hypersensitivity with high reliability. Using GARD®air, it is possible not only to develop better and safer products, but also not least to be able to offer employees a safe production and work environment.

“When developing for example pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, risk assessment and safety tests are essential for securing the release of safe products to consumers. Furthermore, the risks associated with the production itself should also be evaluated. In cases where a hazardous substance cannot be replaced or avoided, we provide the employer with the knowledge needed to protect the staff in the best way. With the help of GARD®air, it is possible to pro-actively create a safer working environment,” says Anki Malmborg Hager, CEO of SenzaGen.

The development of GARD®air was funded by the EU research initiative Horizon 2020. In conjunction with the EU elections 2019, the EU Commission has chosen GARD®air for a special campaign on how the EU funds are used to create jobs and growth. The campaign takes place during May and June. For more information about the campaign, visit www.europa.eu/investeu and https://europa.eu/investeu/projects/new-kind-allergy-test_en.

Briefly about Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the EU’s framework program for research and innovation. The program comprises the world’s largest investment in research and innovation and has a total budget of around EUR 80 billion (2014-2020). The aim is, among other things, to ensure the EU’s global competitiveness. For more information about Horizon 2020, see https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/horizon2020/en.

SenzaGen appoints Axel Sjöblad as new CEO – mission to lead the company into an expansive sales phase

Over the last few years SenzaGen has made major progress, bringing the company to the next phase with increased focus on marketing and sales. In accordance with the company's strategic plan and accelerating commercial activities, SenzaGen's Board has appointed Axel Sjöblad as new CEO starting June 17, 2019. Axel most recently held the position as CEO of BioGaia and replaces Anki Malmborg Hager, who after five years as CEO, is nominated to become a member of the company’s board.

Axel Sjöblad has extensive experience in managing and developing global growth companies in medical technology and Life Science. He was most recently the CEO of BioGaia AB, a company with sales in 100 countries. During his time as CEO of BioGaia from 2016 to 2018, the company strengthened its market-leading position, with an increased market cap from around SEK 4 billion to approximately SEK 7 billion. Prior to working for BioGaia, Sjöblad was President Sales and Service North Europe and CEO of Getinge Sverige AB and Regional Vice President Northern European Markets at Gambro with responsibility for subsidiaries running operations in several European countries. He holds an MBA and Executive MBA from the Stockholm School of Economics. He is a board member of VibroSense Dynamics and former elite player in handball.

“We are pleased to welcome Axel Sjöblad as CEO during this important phase of our growth journey. Axel has solid commercial background in the Life Science sector and will add valuable expertise through his broad experience of driving sales expansion into international markets. The Board is convinced that Axel has the necessary skills, vision and determination to build on the foundations that CEO Anki Malmborg Hager, has successfully laid in recent years,” says Carl Borrebaeck, Chairman of SenzaGen.

Axel’s focus is to expand global sales based on SenzaGen’s unique product portfolio for animal-free allergy tests.

“SenzaGen is a very well-run company that has developed with a long-term and serious focus and I look forward to further leading the company towards full-scale commercialization. The company’s test methods have the potential to fulfill a unique customer need and to promote a paradigm shift for industrial tests. For the first time substances that cause allergies can be identified both with greater accuracy and most importantly without any animal testing. I very much look forward to being a part of this,” says Sjöblad.

SenzaGen has evolved rapidly from an exciting innovative start-up to a company in the commercialization phase, since Anki Malmborg Hager joined in 2014. In a short time, the company has developed a unique test methodology with strong potential in several application areas and industries, as well as signing important license and distribution partners. Within the testing industry, a conversion process is already underway in which SenzaGen is playing a key role.

“Anki has done a fantastic job by taking an academic innovation into a finished product. With her drive and vision, she has broadened the market potential for the GARD® platform thereby building the company’s market value with an increased number of license and distribution agreements. In order to secure continued access to her broad expertise and experience, the company’s main shareholders will propose Anki as a board member of SenzaGen at the Annual General Meeting on May 15,” says Carl Borrebaeck, Chairman of SenzaGen.

By adding an additional CRO to our sales channels in the US, we have now given more end customers access to our innovative tests. In addition, with a driven and respected partner, we are increasing the possibilities of accelerating a change throughout the toxicological testing industry,” says Anki Malmborg Hager, CEO of SenzaGen.

The collaboration with MB Research Labs is in line with SenzaGen’s strategy to recruit strong CRO and industrial partners in several market segments and geographies. The United States is an important market that currently accounts for just over one third of the global market for cell based in vitro testing. There is also a keen interest in animal-free and alternative test methods with introductions in legislation of bans on animal testing for cosmetic and other products. California is the first state to pass this type of legislation and the US market is expected to grow as more states face similar bans.

“As a leading provider of in vitro toxicity testing to the US and worldwide, we always want to use the latest predictive and innovative methods, to provide the best in vitro toxicology solutions to our customers. GARD™ delivers all this, and we look forward to a fruitful collaboration”, states George DeGeorge, Ph.D. DABT, Chief Scientific Officer at MB Research Labs.

SenzaGen’s GARD™ product portfolio consists of a set of allergy tests with industry leading performance and accuracy. The tests are performed on human cells in test tubes (in vitro) in combination with artificial intelligence, and replace animal experiments for the cosmetics, chemical and pharmaceutical industries for their tests on whether chemical substances in products can be allergenic.

The SenzaGen’s GARD™ portfolio will be presented on 10-14 March 2019 at the SOT Society of Tocicology’s 58th Annual Meeting and ToxExpo (Booth #3652) in Baltimore, USA.

About GARD™
GARD™ consists of a group of tests for analyzing chemicals’ ability to start an allergic reaction in humans. By analyzing hundreds of markers, GARD™ generates large amounts of data and delivers results with over 90 percent accuracy. This can be compared to today’s standard method – tests on mice – which only achieves 70-75 percent precision. SenzaGen’s test can also quantify the allergenic potential of a chemical substance.

SenzaGen granted additional patent in Asia

SenzaGen today announced that the South Korean Patent Office (KIPO) has approved SenzaGen's patent application for GARD™skin. The new patent gives SenzaGen a strong intellectual property position in several strategically important markets.

The granted patent is valid until October 2031 and protects the genetic signature that forms the basis of SenzaGen’s animal-free test for whether chemicals can cause skin allergies. South Korea is a key market in Asia with expected strong growth following a ban on animal testing on cosmetic products that started in 2017.

“For a technology-driven company, it is of the utmost importance that we continuously develop our patent strategy and safeguard our most valuable assets. The patent for GARD™skin protects the method that SenzaGen’s business is built on and strengthens our long-term and global competitiveness”, says Anki Malmborg Hager, CEO of SenzaGen.

SenzaGen has a well-developed IP strategy to protect current and future innovations in important markets where the company markets or plans to market its tests. Market data show that the need for alternative testing methods is growing around the world as bans to use animals are introduced in more countries, thus boosting the market potential of SenzaGen’s animal-free testing method. Already granted in Europe, China and Hong Kong, patent applications for GARD™skin are currently being processed by the patent authorities in countries where animal testing is prohibited or where a ban is expected to be introduced, including the United States, Canada and India. In addition, the patent portfolio includes several ongoing patent applications for other GARD® products.

SenzaGen’s GARD™ product portfolio consists of a set of allergy tests with industry leading performance and accuracy. The tests are performed on human cells in test tubes (in vitro) in combination with artificial intelligence and replace animal experiments for the cosmetics, chemical and pharmaceutical industries for their tests on whether chemical substances in products can be allergenic.
