partnering discussions for the Panzem(R) RA program.
Mr. Burns commented on the update, "Increased royalty revenues and strategic cost reductions should place the Company in a position to weather the current market conditions into 2010. Aggressive partnering efforts for our Aurora/angiogenesis inhibitor, ENMD-2076, are underway, which will help accelerate development of this exciting compound and provide the financial resources to maintain our clinical development plan. These are difficult market conditions but we will continue to be resilient in our strategies. While our stock price has suffered, we have continued to make excellent clinical progress. I am confident in our pipeline of multi-mechanism drugs for cancer and inflammatory diseases and I believe that we remain on course to achieve our clinical and partnering milestones."
