Investment summary

Novogen is developing three groups of anti-cancer compounds, including GDC-0084, a phase II-ready PI3K inhibitor licensed from Genentech that is intended for glioblastoma. To move forward with this programme, the company has acquired neuro-oncology company Glioblast for AU$2.1m plus milestones. The company will transfer the IND from Genentech and design the Phase II study in the upcoming months. Its super-benzopyran drugs include Cantrixil and Trilexium, which are potent against cancer stem cells that are resistant to standard chemotherapy drugs, both in vitro and in vivo. Its lead anti-tropomyosin drug, Anisina, shows strong synergy with SoC anti-mitotic vinca alkaloid drugs. Anisina has orphan drug designation for neuroblastoma by the US FDA. The company has AU$33.4m cash at June 2016 and initiated a 60-patient Phase I trial of Cantrixil in ovarian cancer in December 2016 and Anisina is on track to enter the clinic in 2017.
