Clinical trials are a critical phase of development in the field of biotechnology. It can be extremely challenging, but also highly rewarding as a product progresses from smaller, safety trials, to later stage trials involving much larger patient numbers. However, if successful at each stage, companies can find themselves increasing many multiples in value and often find themselves the target of an acquisition, or their product licensed to Big Pharma who have the marketing and sales force capabilities to distribute a potential new blockbuster product.
Understanding more about the different phases of clinical trials:
Be on the lookout for biotech companies with up and running clinical trials. Companies in Phase I or II clinical trials are a strong indication of potential future success.
UPDATES ON PROPANC HEALTH GROUP CORP CLINICAL TRIALS (PPCH)
Insiders and outsiders of the biotech world are hearing more and more about PPCH, the Australian-based biotechnology company seeking to develop new long term treatments for cancer. Propanc has made significant progress advancing towards its first human trials for their lead product, PRP.
PRP targets malignant cancer cells through multiple pathways. As a result, the company believes the product may create a lasting clinical benefit for the patient. Propanc is in the final stages of completing non-clinical studies and intends to file a clinical trial application in the UK later this year. The clinical trials will assess the safety and efficacy of their product against solid tumors. Propanc CEO, James Nathanielsz outlined its development plans for PRP, as the company intends to begin a Phase 1 human study by the end of 2017.
PPCH just announced the successful completion of the low dose group for its GLP-compliant 28-day repeat dose toxicity study. With no safety concerns in the low dose group, Propanc received approval to proceed with the middle and high dose groups from the International Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC) in Melbourne, Australia.
The company submitted four new patents in the US, Australia, and Spain last year on the dosage and mechanism of action for its two proenzymes used in PRP, two proenzymes, trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen. With recent approvals of intellectual property rights and patents in various regions around the world, their patents are reaching significant milestones and increasing in value.
