SYDNEY, February 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Novogen Limited (ASX: NRT; NASDAQ: NVGN) is pleased to announce that Novogen Group CEO and Executive Chairman, Graham Kelly PhD, will be presenting at the 17th annual BIO CEO and Investor Conference being held on the 9th & 10th February, 2015.
The conference is the largest of its kind, focusing on established and emerging publicly listed biotech companies and is attended by a mix of investors, analysts, investment bankers and industry.
Dr Kelly will outline the Company’s two proprietary drug technology platforms and their potential therapeutic value in oncology, as well as reviewing the Company’s clinical strategy and timetable and anticipated milestones.
Kelly said, "The BIO CEO and Investor Conference presents an opportunity for Novogen to bring its unique story to the attention of the market. Novogen is different. The path we have chosen to take is different because current standard and experimental approaches are failing to address the causes of cancer recurrence: the impregnability of the cancer stem cell and the ability of a cancer to survive by continuing to mutate and produce means of beating new therapies."
"With one technology platform with a potent ability to kill cancer stem cells and a second platform that produces dramatic synergy of some of the most widely used and effective cytotoxics in chemotherapy, we believe we have the potential to make meaningful differences to the lives of patients with malignant cancers."
Date & Time:
9th February, 2015, 9am
The Waldorf Astoria, New York,
4th Floor, Duke of Windsor Room

About Novogen Limited
Novogen is a public, Australian drug-development company whose shares trade on both the Australian Securities Exchange (‘NRT’) and NASDAQ (‘NVGN’). The Novogen Group includes a New Haven CT — based joint venture company, CanTx Inc., with Yale University.
Novogen has two main drug technology platforms: super-benzopyrans (SBPs) and anti-tropomyosins (ATMs). SBP compounds have been created to kill the full range of cells within a tumor, but particularly the cancer stem cells. The ATM compounds target the microfilament component of the cancer cell and when used in conjunction with standard anti-microtubular drugs, result in comprehensive and fatal destruction of the cancer cell’s cytoskeleton. Ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer, malignant ascites, prostate cancer, neural cancers (glioblastoma, neuroblastoma in children) and melanoma are the key clinical indications being pursued, with the ultimate objective of employing both technologies as a unified approach to first-line therapy.
