ILC Therapeutics™ Ltd is an early stage biotechnology company focused on modulating the Innate Immune System through the development of novel peptide therapeutics for the treatment of Cancer, Atopic Dermatitis and Psoriasis.
Innate Lymphoid Cells were discovered 10 years ago and are split into three classes: ILC-1, ILC-2 and ILC-3, each class associated with a different type of disease: Cancer, Atopic Dermatitis and Psoriasis respectively.
There is a renaissance of interest in Alpha Interferon driven by the discovery that this protein is the bridge between the two halves of the immune system: the Innate Immune Systems and the Adaptive Immune System.
For the immune system to reach its full potential in the area of cancer therapy both halves have to be fully engaged. Interest in NK cell therapy is exploding and NK cells are a type of Innate Lymphoid Cell 1 (ILC-1) modulated by alpha interferons. Our hybrid, patented, interferon alpha has been shown to have a powerful stimulatory effect on NK cells and this is critical to maintaining NK cell activity inside tumours where the cancer is trying to switch them off and escape destruction.
Our Hybrid 1 has shown modulatory effects on tissue based ILC-2 networks (Atopic
Dermatitis) and ILC-3 networks associated with Psoriasis.
All these applications have massive market potential driven by unmet clinical need or under performance of existing therapies. We expect that alone or in combination with current standard of care we have can have a significant clinical impact in the future.
EOS has led several seed rounds into ILC Therapeutics since the first in 2015.

Rooser is a B2B cloud based fresh fish trading platform.
Fresh fish is currently sold across Europe by 6,500 companies using traditional trade routes, it passes through a number of middlemen, each taking a margin before reaching the final wholesaler.

Suppliers are able to upload their available products, the goods are then viewed and selected by a network of wholesalers. Transport, payment and quality is managed by the platform.
Rooser is initially targeting the markets of Italy, France, Spain and UK, as these combined account for over 84% of fresh seafood sales in Europe. The platform will then be rolled out globally.
