Notes for editors


About Mereo BioPharma (


Mereo BioPharma is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative therapeutics that aim to improve outcomes for patients with oncology and rare diseases. Mereo's strategy is to selectively acquire product candidates for oncology and rare diseases that have already received significant investment from pharmaceutical and large biotechnology companies and that have substantial preclinical, clinical and manufacturing data packages.


Mereo's lead oncology product candidate, etigilimab, an anti-TIGIT, has completed a Phase 1a and Phase 1b for a range of solid tumor types and the second product candidate, navicixizumab, for ovarian cancer has been licensed to Oncologie Inc. for up to $300M in milestone payments. Mereo's lead rare disease product candidate, setrusumab, has completed a Phase 2b dose-ranging study in adults with osteogenesis imperfecta ("OI") and a pivotal Phase 3 study design in paediatrics has been agreed with the FDA and EMA. Mereo's second lead product candidate, alvelestat, is being investigated in a Phase 2 proof-of-concept clinical trial in patients with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency ("AATD"). Mereo plans to form a strategic partnership for setrusumab prior to initiation of the paediatric pivotal study.
