LOS ANGELES, Feb. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NeOnc Technologies Holdings, Inc., a clinical stage medical biotechnology company, has completed a $10.0 million equity funding round at a post-money valuation of $70 million.

The proceeds were used to conduct Phase 2 clinical trials of NEO 100™, an enhanced method of delivering pharma-based therapeutics to the brain designed for the treatment of brain and central nervous system (CNS) diseases.

The funding participants included Eminent II Venture Capital (the investment arm of TaiAn Venture Funds), Orion BioScience, and Lin Family Office.

NeOnc’s proprietary biotechnology breakthroughs are the result of more than a decade of research and development by its highly accomplished medical and scientific teams. NeOnc’s patent portfolio consists of 95 patents U.S. and international patents.

NeOnc’s technology focuses on segments of the global CNS treatment market which is expected to grow from $89 billion in 2021 to $166.5 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 9.4%, according to Future Business Insights.

“The financing has helped us to advance the commercialization of NEO 100 for Grade IV Gliomas and NEO 212 for treatment of malignant gliomas,” stated NeOnc’s chairman and CEO, Thomas Chen, MD, Ph.D. “Following the success of our Phase 1 clinical trials, we have established a timeline for further trials which we believe should provide certain data required for regulatory validation and advancing to commercialization.”

NEO 100 is classified as an orphan drug and is on a fast-track pathway for FDA approval. Because of the successful studies to-date of NEO 100 for treating Grade IV Gliomas, NeOnc has begun work on a pediatric rare disease indication for children with high grade Gliomas.

The company currently expects to utilize NeOnc’s platform technology to launch Phase One clinical trials for its second drug, NEO 212™. The company hopes to submit NEO 212™ for approval as an investigational new drug and currently plans on filing pediatric rare disease designation by the end of 2023.

The company’s funding to date (equity and NIH grants) totals approximately $14.0 million.
