Company Overview

Hexima (ASX:HXL) is a clinical stage, anti-infectives focused biotechnology company engaged in the research and development of plant defensin peptides for applications as human therapeutics. Our lead product candidate, pezadeftide (HXP124) applied in a topical formulation, is a potential new prescription treatment for toenail fungal infections (or onychomycosis). Hexima is currently conducting advanced global clinical trials testing pezadeftide for the treatment of onychomycosis. Hexima holds granted, long-life patents protecting pezadeftide in major markets globally. The Company’s patent-protected antifungal technology also has the potential to treat other localised fungal infections.





Investment Highlights

Large and growing market opportunity with clear unmet need.

Onychomycosis affects 14% of the US population¹. The current global market for onychomycosis treatments was US$3.7 billion in 2018².

There is an unmet need of both clinicians and patients for a safe topical treatment with greater efficacy and a shorter course of treatment.

Lead compound, pezadeftide, is a novel, patent protected molecule with a unique mode of action.

Pezadeftide is a new biologic with a novel fungicidal mode of action. It rapidly penetrates the human nail to target the site of infection.

Pezadeftide has demonstrated a favourable safety profile and delivers effective and rapid antifungal treatment.

Pezadeftide promises greater efficacy than existing topical products with a shorter and more convenient treatment duration.

Advanced development program and experienced management team

Pezadeftide is currently in advanced clinical trials. Hexima’s executive team encompasses a mix of established corporate, clinical research, and operational executives – with a track record of executing on product development programs and delivering value.
