Processa Pharmaceuticals secured net proceeds of $9.9 million, which will enable the company to be funded through 2023 and either expand the clinical development of PCS6422 or conduct enabling toxicology studies to advance PCS11T. “We are grateful for the support from our investors. This financing will not only strengthen our balance sheet but will allow us to further develop one of our cancer treatment drugs, PCS6422 or PCS11T,” said David Young, Pharm.D., Ph.D., chairman and CEO of Processa Pharmaceuticals. “We anticipate that these two drugs will prove to be better than many of the present treatments in patients with colorectal cancer, breast cancer, pancreatic cancer or lung cancer.”
