About Lixte Biotechnology Holdings, Inc.

Lixte is a biotechnology company engaged in development of improved treatments for cancer and methods for detecting cancer. Lixte was created to capitalize on opportunities to develop low cost, specific and sensitive tests for the early detection of cancers. Over the past four years, however, the Company has evolved into what is now primarily a cancer drug discovery company, using biomarker technology to develop new potentially more effective anti-cancer drugs.

The Company is developing new treatments for several cancers for which better treatments are urgently needed. The primary focus is on the most common and most aggressive type of brain cancer of adults, glioblastoma multiforme ("GBM"). The research on brain tumors is being conducted with the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke ("NINDS") of the National Institutes of Health ("NIH") under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement ("CRADA").

The Company has expanded the scope of its program to other cancers of neural tissue (nerve and brain), including medulloblastoma, the most common brain tumor of children, and neuroblastoma, the most common cancer of children, and to other common cancers of adults including sarcomas, melanomas, and breast cancer
