About AroCell

AroCell AB (AROC) is a Swedish company that develops standardized modern blood tests to support the prognosis and follow up of cancer patients. AroCell's new technology is based on patented methods to measure TK1 protein levels, which provide valuable information about the speed of cell turnover. A tumor has high cell turnover (speed of cell division and cell death) and as a result TK1 can be detected in the blood with a simple laboratory test, called TK 210 ELISA. The test provides valuable clinical information for prognosis and optimization of treatment strategy. The test may also be used for monitoring disease relapse. AroCell (AROC) is listed at Nasdaq First North and has about 2,600 shareholders. For more information, please see


. Redeye AB is AroCell:s Certified Adviser.

Comments by CEO Jan Stålemark

A key priority for Arocell in 2017 is to ensure that we have a strong strategic framework in place to maintain focus for our activities and drive commercial growth. We have identified key areas where we will focus on moving forward which include elements to support both the commercial and clinical strategies.

Our commercial activities have increased significantly during the last period. We have seen a very positive response to our diverse marketing activities. These activities have generated significant interest in our product, providing plenty of contacts and leads for us to follow up on. We are thereby now able to make advances in commercializing our CE-marked TK 210 ELISA kit into the clinical research market.

The clinical validation is a key focus to ensure customer acceptance for long term growth. We have made good progress in the clinical development plans and expect to be presenting preliminary and interesting results soon. The Swedish Promix multicentre study has been analysed and publication is planned. Both our prospective studies, Sarcoma at Helsinki hospital and Prostate cancer at the South Hospital in Stockholm are on plan and expected to be completed by the end of 2018. We have also completed the analysis of the biobank samples in the U-CAN study in Uppsala. The remaining work is to get the results analysed in correlation to the patient records which will be done by the clinicians at Uppsala Academic Hospital. This is key to our strategy in obtaining clinical acceptance through clinical validation, in order to introduce our product to the global in vitro diagnostic market.

As prostate cancer is a key component in our clinical development program, it is essential to communicate the results to the medical community. A scientific poster was presented at the AARC, American Association of Cancer Research. It shows significant correlation between results by TK 210 ELISA and Prostate Health Index (PHI), a new index to determine patient status for individuals with suspected or confirmed prostate cancer. The study compare AroCell's TK 210 ELISA test with other commonly used test methods such as PSA, free PSA, pro PSA and PHI in men with pre-cancerous conditions and confirmed prostate cancer indicates that AroCell's TK 210 ELISA test provides valuable clinical information.


We have the only CE-marked kit on the market that measures concentrations of TK 1 protein in serum from a simple blood test based on the global standardized ELISA format. Our product's uniqueness has generated interest well above our expectations during meetings with potential customers from the research and medical communities at trade shows and conferences. This will be a strong basis to find new partners and markets in 2017. 

With a robust product, commercially available and with an increased customer interest, we are now putting full efforts behind our plans for launching the TK 210 ELISA kit into the clinical research market as well as the ongoing clinical development program.

Essential risks

Financial risks

AroCell's business activities are based on external financing. To date, the company has been successful in obtaining financing, but there are not guarantees of this happening in the future in a way that is advantageous to the company's shareholders. A sufficiently serious failure in future financing may affect the company's development and market value.

Development and production risks

Development and transfer to production are always associated with risks. A product manufactured at production scale does not always display the same characteristics as one manufactured at research scale. Developing future products may also prove to be more complicated and take longer than expected.

Commercialization risks

There is always a risk that the products AroCell has developed will not achieve the expected positive reception on the market and that the product will need longer time to gain acceptance. Particularly in the early stages, the quantity of products sold may then be lower and the time it takes to establish the product on the market may be longer than the company allowed for in its sales estimates.

Currency risks

The company expenses are partially based in Euro, and this means that there is a risk that weakening of the Swedish krona against the Euro may lead to increased expenses for the company. A portion of the sales proceeds in future can be associated with currencies from other countries, which means that there is a risk that if the Swedish krona becomes stronger to other currencies, this may lead to decreased profits for the company in SEK.

In addition, there are risks associated with patent security and how the market assesses studies, approvals and certifications. Taking risk factors into consideration in decision processes and when designing routines and drawing up documentation means that the risks are assessed and their effects can be minimized, and to some extent, avoided.

Ørsted/CFO: Ingen planer om yderligere frasalg i Europa efter Hornsea

Der kommer sandsynligvis til at gå længere tid mellem, at danske Ørsted sælger ud af havvindmølleporteføljen i Europa, efter at energikoncernen tirsdag annoncerede et frasalg af halvdelen af den store britiske havvindmøllepark Hornsea 1.I flere år har Ørsted løbende solgt dele af en lang række projekter for at sikre, at der var penge nok til at investere i at opføre flere af de omkostningstunge ha..

Frasalg af ejerandele i havvindmølleparker i Europa skal ikke ske nærmest automatisk fremover for energiselskabet Ørsted, men i Taiwan ser strategien anderledes ud.Den danske energikoncern har i løbet af i år vundet retten til at opføre havvindmølleparker med en samlet kapacitet på 1820 megawatt ud for den taiwanske kyst, og her øjner Ørsted også muligheden for at få nogle penge i kassen fra ejera..
