Investment summary

Novogen is developing two groups of anti-cancer compounds, including GDC-0084, a phase II-ready PI3K inhibitor licensed from Genentech that is intended for glioblastoma. The company has transferred the IND from Genentech and is finalising design for a Phase II study expected to start in H217. 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. A 60-patient Phase I trial of Cantrixil in ovarian cancer commenced in December 2016 - while the primary aim is to assess safety and tolerability, radiological responses and biomarkers will be assessed for indications of efficacy. Novogen has terminated development of its preclinical anti-tropomyosin drug Anisina, but has initiated a next-generation anti-tropomyosin drug discovery program supported by an A$3m government grant. The company had A$18.6m cash at December 2016.
