The refund is from Anatara's 2016-2017 research activities and reflects a period of significant investment into the Company's lead product, Detach(R), for the control of gastrointestinal disease in pigs, as well as activities designed to progress Anatara's human therapeutics pipeline.
Anatara's Chairman and CEO, Dr Mel Bridges said, "The 2016-2017 period was an important one for Anatara as we focused on moving Detach closer to market and prepared to expand our program into human applications. The R&D tax incentive provides an important source of non-dilutive funding and enables the Company to remain well funded as we progress our commercialisation activities."
