The trial's main objective is to determine the recommended dose of TASQ in combination with cabazitaxel based on safety and tolerability in men with chemorefractory metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).
At present, a global, pivotal, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase III study of TASQ in patients with metastatic CRPC is being implemented with the aim of confirming the agent's effect on the disease.

project, andpublished a first target molecule for the ISI project, CEO Tomas Leanderson said.
The higher R&D costs were due to the ongoing Phase III trial for the ANYARA renal cancer project, the ongoing Phase II trial for the TASQ
prostate cancer project and the 57-57 project for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
