About Propanc Biopharma, Inc.
Propanc Biopharma, Inc. (the “Company”) is a biopharmaceutical company developing new cancer treatments initially for patients suffering from pancreatic, ovarian and colorectal cancers. The Company has developed a formulation of anti-cancer compounds, which exert a number of effects designed to control or prevent tumors from recurring and spreading throughout the body by targeting and eradicating cancer stem cells. The Company’s products involve or employ pancreatic proenzymes, which are inactive precursors of enzymes. In the near term, the Company intends to target patients with limited remaining therapeutic options for the treatment of solid tumors. In the future, the Company intends to develop its lead product candidate, PRP, to treat early stage cancer and pre-cancerous diseases, and as a preventative measure for patients at risk of developing cancer based on genetic screening.
PRP is a solution for intravenous administration of a combination of two pancreatic proenzymes trypsinogen and chymotrypsinogen. Progressing towards a first-in-human study, PRP seeks to prevent recurrence and metastasis from solid tumors by targeting and eradicating cancer stem cells. Eighty percent of cancers are solid tumors and metastasis is the main cause of patient death from cancer. According to the World Health Organization, 8.2 million people died from cancer in 2012. A report by IMS Health states innovative therapies are driving the global oncology market to meet demand, which is expected to reach $150 billion by 2020. The Company’s initial target patient populations are pancreatic, ovarian and colorectal cancers, representing an estimated combined market segment of $14 billion in 2020, according to GBI Research.
