HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / October 4, 2018 / Verastem, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, with two potential therapies for leukemia, lymphoma, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, mesothelioma, and pancreatic cancer. Recently made its investors a boatload signing some major deals. While it may be a little late on VSTM, there is another company working on a solution to the same cancers that has made impressive progress recently and could be the next major success story in the sector, Propanc Biopharma, Inc. (PPCB).
PPCB is an intriguing biotech firm, that erupted for over 7000% last month going from a low of $0.0039 to a high of over $0.28, the stock is still holding a substantial gain as of the close on Wednesday. PPCB may start receiving increased attention from the street at any moment. PPCB has a 52 week high of $0.77. PPCB is currently readying for its Phase 1 Clinical Trial of its lead product PRP, which was granted FDA Orphan Drug Designation for Pancreatic cancer. If this is the first time you are hearing about PPCB, start doing your own research now. PPCB is an impressive biotech firm, with a serious patent portfolio. Those that find PPCB before its clinical trial could be in store for a great ride.
PPCB also discovered a key gene target for drug developers, Rac1B, which increased as a result of PRP treatment. This gene suppresses cellular motility and proliferation of CSCs by ultimately inhibiting TGF-?, a known growth factor responsible for tumorigenesis and metastasis.
PPCB’s CEO James Nathanielsz said “We remain excited by these important discoveries, as suppressing the CSCs population whilst avoiding potential unwanted side effects towards normal stem cells means we have a targeted therapy that can control the spread of cancer. Metastasis, or spreading cancer, remains the main cause of patient death from cancer.”
The FDA granted Orphan Drug Designation status to PRP for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. This qualifies the Company for seven-year FDA-administered market Orphan Drug Exclusivity (ODE), tax credits of up to 50% of R&D costs, potential for R&D grants, waived FDA fees, protocol assistance and possible clinical trial tax incentives if conducted in the U.S.
The company is also very close to its first-in-human studies. PPCB has some very exciting events on the horizon. Now is the perfect time to beat the crowd on PPCB.
