Stock Insiders is podcast series focused investing hosted by TV presenter and news journalist Christina Morrissy. 

In this episode Christina chats to Dr Liz Dallimore, CEO & managing director at Argenica Therapeutics (ASX:AGN).

Argenica develop and seek to commercialise a “best in class” neuroprotective cationic arginine-rich peptide therapy to improve outcomes in stroke patients. It has developed a neuroprotective drug that can be administered in the field by paramedics, and used in conjunction with endovascular therapy (thrombolysis/thrombectomy) to improve neuroprotective outcomes, and importantly increase the number of patients amenable to thrombolysis and thrombectomy.

A safety report released on March 6 has given Argenica the confidence to progress to the Phase 2 clinical trial in stroke patients later this year.

The company recently secured non-dilutive cash funding from the Stan Perron Charitable Foundation (SPCF) via the Perron Institute for Neurological and Translational Sciences to progress preclinical studies into the efficacy of its ARG-007 drug in neonatal Hypoxic Ischaemic Encephalopathy (HIE).
