Message from the CEO
"During the month of June, the first patients were recruited and dosed in IBTs clinical study, IBP-9414, in the USA. The last patient was recruited on January 23, 2017 and the results of the study are expected during the autumn of 2017. During the month of December, IBT presented a further development project, IBP-1016, which is aimed to address the medical issues that arise in infants that are affected by gastroschisis, a rare and serious disease.
2017 is going to be an important year for IBT. We will continue to build our organization so that we are well prepared for future challenges. We expect to understand how agencies and experts view our new project IBP-1016 and we also expect to receive our Phase II (NCT02472769) results.
It is our long-term hope and ambition to offer the market pharmaceuticals that can save the lives of premature infants and I am optimistic about the future of IBT and our projects."

The information was submitted for publication, by the CEO, at 08.00 a.m. CET on February 14, 2017.
Infant Bacterial Therapeutics AB (publ) ("IBT") is a pharmaceutical company with a vision to develop drugs influencing the human infant microbiome, and thereby prevent or treat rare diseases affecting premature infants. Using its extensive experience in live bacterial therapeutics and its well-developed knowledge of the action of Lactobacillus reuteri, IBT is developing its lead drug candidate IBP-9414, to prevent necrotizing enterocolitis ("NEC"), a fatal, rare disease that afflicts premature infants. IBT is further pursuing a second rare disease programme IBP-1016 for the treatment of an unmet medical need in gastroschisis, a severe disease in infants. By developing these drugs, IBT has the potential to fulfil unmet needs for diseases where there are currently no prevention or treatment therapies available.
The FDA and the European Commission have granted IBT Orphan Drug Designation, and the FDA have granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation for IBP-9414 for the prevention of NEC.
IBT is listed on Nasdaq First North with Erik Penser Bank as Certified Adviser.
