READ: Kazia Therapeutics will outline anti-cancer drug development strategy at CEO Sessions

Kazia Therapeutics is developing anti-cancer drugs with its pipeline including two clinical-stage drug development candidates, which chief executive officer James Garner will outline to investors.

Its lead candidate is GDC-0084, which entered a phase II clinical trial in March 2018, and Kazia expects initial data early this year followed by other data read-outs.

GDC-0084 is being developed for glioblastoma multiforme, the most common and most aggressive form of primary brain cancer.

Chemotherapy treatment temozolomide is only effective in one-third of patients and, furthermore, the median survival rate is 12 to 15 months from diagnosis, meaning there is a demand for superior treatments.
