"Over the last several months we've made tremendous strides in pivoting our business towards an RNA therapeutics pure play," said Thomas Meyer, Altamira's founder, CEO and Chairman. "We've laid the foundation by developing our proprietary OligoPhoreTM / SemaPhoreTM platforms for extrahepatic RNA delivery and are progressing the preclinical development of our AM-401 for treatment of KRAS-driven cancers.

Concurrent with our business transition, we have continued to invest in our non-RNA legacy programs and to drive the toward several important milestones. Our drug-free nasal spray Bentrio continues to expand its global commercialization footprint in over 20 countries while we advance three clinical trials. Based on positive interim clinical data for our AM-125 nasal spray drug for vertigo, we look forward to the upcoming read-out from our Phase 2 clinical trial . We plan to divest or spin off all legacy assets by year-end 2022 to more fully realize their value and become a pure play RNA company."
