John R. North, recently appointed CEO of Inimex, stated that "Inimex has made tremendous scientific progress on critical aspects of our product profiles. The $4M tranche will expedite formal preclinical studies for our lead program. Additionally, the funds will enable further build out of our pipeline programs."

Brenda Irwin of BDC Venture Capital noted that "Inimex has impressively built upon their solid scientific foundation. Timely achievement of the Series A milestones highlights the ability of the Inimex team to execute to plan."
