Tim Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, said:  “The Company has matured considerably over the period, with real progress made in our key programmes. Our broadened approach of entering into collaborations where appropriate, allowing us to take advantage of the higher asset values associated with licensing later stage programmes, gives us greater flexibility in choosing the right deal for our programmes.”


“With two programmes now in pre-clinical development, we are expecting a busy period in the year ahead.”
