DelMar Pharmaceuticals To Present At The 16th Annual Rodman & Renshaw Global Investment Conference

DelMar Is Advancing Clinical Trials With VAL-083 As A New Chemotherapy For Refractory Glioblastoma Multiforme

VANCOUVER, British Columbia and MENLO PARK, Calif., Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- DelMar Pharmaceuticals, Inc., (OTCQB: DMPI), developer of advanced cancer therapeutics, will be featured as a presenting company at the 16th Annual Rodman & Renshaw Global Investment Conference, sponsored by H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC. The presentation will take place Tuesday, September 9th at 2:55 p.m. EDT in the Kennedy II Salon (4th floor) at the New York Palace Hotel in New York City. The presentation can be viewed live via webcast at http://wsw.com/webcast/rrshq24/dmpi and will be available for 90 days following the conference.

Jeffrey Bacha, president and CEO of DelMar, will provide an overview of DelMar's progress in developing important, new chemotherapies for patients who have little to no therapeutic options. 

DelMar's lead drug, VAL-083, is currently undergoing human clinical trials as a potential new chemotherapy to treat refractory glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common and aggressive form of brain cancer. VAL-083 has received orphan drug designation in the United States and in Europe for the treatment of glioma. 

Developing Essential New Treatments For Aggressive Brain Cancer

Nearly half of all patients diagnosed with GBM will fail today's approved therapies, Temodar® and Avastin®. Currently, there is no available or approved therapy for these patients and their prognosis is very poor with a life expectancy of only weeks to months. DelMar is currently conducting a Phase I/II clinical trial in refractory GBM at three centers: The Brain Tumor Center at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), The Sarah Cannon Cancer Research Center (SCRI) in Nashville, Tenn., and the SCRI affiliate site at the Florida Cancer Specialist Research Institute in Sarasota, Fla. Details of the clinical trial can be found at: http://www.delmarpharma.com/GBM_clinical_trial/

VAL-083 is a "first-in-class" small-molecule chemotherapeutic which means that the molecular structure of VAL-083 is not an analogue or derivative of other small molecule chemotherapeutics approved for the treatment of cancer. VAL-083 has been assessed in multiple clinical studies sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in the United States as a treatment against various cancers including lung, brain, cervical, ovarian tumors and leukemia. Published pre-clinical and clinical data suggest that VAL-083 may be active against a range of tumor types, including GBM. VAL-083 is approved as a cancer chemotherapeutic in China for the treatment of chronic mylogenous leukemia (CML) and lung cancer.

DelMar's data suggest that the tumor-killing mechanism of VAL-083 is distinct from other chemotherapies approved for the treatment of GBM and therefore are not subject to resistance by mechanisms such as MGMT, which are believed to cause the majority of patients to fail chemotherapies available for treatment today.
