STOCKHOLM, May 6[th], 2024, Moberg Pharma AB (OMX:MOB) hereby announces that MOB-015 has received national approvals for all countries included in the decentralized procedure. MOB-015 is thus approved for the treatment of mild to moderate fungal infections of the nails in adults in 13 European countries.

National approvals follow the completion of the decentralized procedure with a positive result where MOB-015 is recommended for approval in 13 European countries, see press release from June 28th, 2023.

About MOB-015 and Onychomycosis
Approximately 10% of the general population suffer from onychomycosis and a majority of those afflicted go untreated. The global market opportunity is significant with more than hundred million patients worldwide and a clear demand for better products. Moberg Pharma estimates the annual worldwide peak sales potential for MOB-015 to be in the range of USD 250-500 million.

MOB-015 is an in-house developed topical formulation of terbinafine, enabling effective concentrations of terbinafine to the nail and nail bed while avoiding the risk of systemic exposure seen with oral terbinafine use. Oral terbinafine is currently the gold standard for treating onychomycosis but associated with safety issues, including drug interactions and liver damage. MOB-015 has been granted marketing authorization in 13 countries and is launched during spring 2024 in Sweden under the brand name Terclara®. The approval is supported by two Phase 3 trials where MOB-015 demonstrated superior levels of mycological cure (76% vs up to 42% for comparators), and a significantly better complete cure rate compared to vehicle, without any serious adverse reactions.
