The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Key Developments

Critical Outcome Technologies Inc. Signs Letter of Intent with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for the Phase 1 Clinical Development of COTI-2 in Gynecological Cancers

Critical Outcome Technologies Inc. announced that it has signed a letter of intent with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for the Phase 1 clinical development of the company's lead cancer drug candidate, COTI-2, in gynecological cancers. COTI-2 is selectively active in vivo and in vitro models with abnormal TP53. This is very exciting as TP53 is one of the "big three" of critically important genes that are not directly targetable. Further, TP53 is almost universally abnormal in high-grade serous ovarian cancer, the most common and most aggressive ovarian cancer. Thus the opportunity to test COTI-2 in ovarian cancer is both timely and exciting. The collaboration will result in COTI-2 one day becoming a breakthrough therapy not only for ovarian cancer patients, but for many patients with other common cancers. Under the terms of the proposed agreement, the Company and MD Anderson will work together to design and conduct a first in humans (Phase 1) study with oral COTI-2 in up to 40 women with advanced gynecological cancers who have failed conventional therapy. For the purposes of the study, the term "gynecological" cancers refers to cancers of the ovary, endometrium, and cervix. The parties have negotiated a cost structure for the clinical trial that is very favorable to the company. COTI's contribution is estimated at approximately USD 1.25 million with the remainder of the costs provided by MD Anderson as in kind monitoring, testing, and pharmacy capabilities. The parties anticipate that patient recruitment for the Phase 1 clinical trial will begin in early 2015.
