"We have maintained all operations related to strategic research and development programs since the beginning of the Coronavirus crisis, but other activities have been delayed," said Jaime Arango, Chief Financial Officer of MedinCell.
"Thanks to our partner banks who quickly mobilized to grant us this loan, we will be able to gradually return to normal activity level and advance as quickly as possible our Covid-19 program, which aims to develop a preventive treatment against the virus (prophylaxis)."
"The second half of the year should be rich for MedinCell, with potential milestones for several products based on our BEPO® technology currently in clinical studies. "
The loan is structured as a PGE (State Guaranteed Loan) with an initial maturity of 12 months at a 0,25% rate and an option for up to 5 years extension.
