The Company’s main asset, MOB-015, is a novel topical treatment for onychomycosis. Data from phase 3 clinical trials in more than 800 patients for MOB-015 indicate that the product has the potential to become the future market leader in onychomycosis.

The Case  

  • Moberg Pharma’s lead asset, MOB-015, has demonstrated world-leading ability to kill nail fungus in two Phase 3 studies.
  • Targeting category leadership with USD 250-500 million in annual product sales potential. Partnerships with potential milestones of USD 120 million + royalties are already in place: Bayer (EU), Taisho Pharmaceuticals (Japan), DongKoo Bio & Pharma (Republic of Korea), Allderma (Scandinavia) and Cipher Pharmaceuticals (Canada). 
  • Proven commercial track record with leading OTC brand KerasalNail® for nail fungus, building a SEK 440 million franchise with 30% market share in the US, divested for SEK 1.4 billion in 2019 – commercialization process to be repeated for MOB-015.
