Tikcro Technologies Reports Third Quarter 2015 Results
 
Tel Aviv, Israel, October 21, 2015 - Tikcro Technologies Ltd. (OTCQB: TIKRF) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015.
 
Aviv Boim, CEO of Tikcro, commented, “In the quarter, we made further progress with our pre-clinical efforts to generate functional specific antibodies, with a focus on blocking antibodies for CTLA-4 and PD1 cancer immune modulators. Both are clinically validated targets for cancer immunotherapy treatment. Leveraging a unique approach for the generation of antibodies, we aim to bring functional antibodies with exclusive blocking qualities to such targeted domains. Antibodies used in the clinic to block these targets continue to gain attention as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved its combination treatment for late stage melanoma and also approved PD1 antibody treatment for certain types of lung cancers. We are on track to screen and validate such new antibodies for immunotherapy treatment and to have initial comparative data with other available antibodies.”
 
Net loss for the third quarter of 2015 was $222,000, or $0.03 per diluted share.
