  • patient enrolment completed during the year but sample analysis was delayed due to COVID-19 related disruption to supplies of key reagents

Garth Selvey, Non-Executive Chairman of ANGLE plc, commented:

"With the help of our staff, external researchers and investors, in 2021 we made good progress on all our major initiatives. We maintained the momentum on our FDA submission with additional analytical studies, launched our clinical laboratories in the United States and UK and secured our first pharma services contracts, added a further 17 peer-reviewed publications, outlined a new prostate cancer study and completed enrolment on our ovarian cancer clinical verification study.

The strong operational momentum seen in 2021 has continued into 2022. Since the start of the year, we have maintained regular and constructive dialogue with FDA on our De Novo application and our United States laboratory has been registered with CLIA and is progressing towards full accreditation. We look forward to a successful year ahead."
