Novogen Launches Joint Venture Aimed At Developing Drugs to Fight Ovarian Cancer
Date:11/6/2013

added. "Yale and Novogen are uniquely positioned to leverage these fundamentals and is why they have joined forces to combat this deadly disease. Yale has the expertise in cancer stem cells culture; Novogen has the drug technology capable of killing these tumor-initiating cells."

Under this joint venture arrangement, Novogen retains full ownership of its drug technology intellectual property (IP) and will grant CanTx access to that IP for drug development purposes. Novogen will continue to explore applications of the same technology platform in a range of other clinical indications including glioblastoma, along with its anti-tropomyosin drug technology in the areas of prostate cancer, melanoma and neuroblastoma.

About Ovarian Cancer

The American Cancer Society estimates that over 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer during 2013 and 14,230 American women will die from the disease. It ranks fifth in cancer deaths among women, accounting for more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system. This cancer mainly develops in older women. About half of the women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer are 63 years or older. It is more common in white women that African-American women.

About Novogen

Novogen Ltd is a public Australian biotechnology company whose shares trade on both the Australian Stock Exchange (symbol 'NRT') and NASDAQ (symbol 'NVGN'). The Company is based in Sydney, Australia and is focused on the development of novel anti-cancer drugs based on two proprietary drug technologies -- the super-benzopyran chemical family and anti-tropomyosin drug technology.

About Cancer Stem Cells

Cancer stem cells are thought to be the tumor-initiating cells in many cancers responsible for both the production of the tumor mass and metastasis. Cancer stem cells have been confirmed in both ovarian cancers and glioblastoma. These cells are highly resistant to chemotherapy
