"I am delighted about our participation in the continued development of this interesting new agent with what appears to be a highly desirable mechanism of action," said Dr. Von Hoff. "I am very hopeful that COTI-2 will have a therapeutic impact in patients with tumors that are non-responsive to conventional therapeutic agents across a number of cancer indications."

Researchers hope to demonstrate that this oral pill will be especially beneficial for patients with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC), endometrial cancer and ovarian cancer, but may also help treat those with colorectal and pancreatic cancers. Collectively, these treatments could represent a worldwide market of more than $20 billion by 2018.

"We are ready to move this exciting new agent to patients quickly and to identify patients most likely to benefit from COTI-2,'' said Dr. Steve Gately, TD2's President and Chief Scientific Officer.

"We are delighted to have the expertise of such a well respected individual as Dr. Von Hoff," said Mr. Michael Cloutier, Chief Executive Officer of COTI. "We believe that affiliating the development of COTI-2 with the scientific expertise of TD2 and Dr. Von Hoff will greatly assist in our commercial efforts. We value the partnership we have with TD2, which allows us to proceed with this program in a step wise fashion as resources become available."

The relationship between TD2 and COTI was initiated at BioPartnering North America 2008 thanks to the Canadian Consulate-Phoenix, which sponsored TGen's participation at the conference. The Canadian Consulate-Phoenix plays a key role in making strategic introductions across Arizona's universities, research facilities, local communities and commercial companies.

"I am thrilled to see this new drug development collaboration between TD2 and an emerging Canadian biotechnology company. The Canada Arizona Business Council hopes that many more will be done,'' said R. Glenn William
