Date:8/14/2008

en identified for clinical screening in inoperable HCC by the institutions during 2008 and 2009. Further compounds will be made available at a rate of one per year, for the duration of the partnership, which is in place until 2012.

Professor Soo Khee Chee, NCCS Director and Assistant CEO (Research and Education) of SingHealth, said: "NCCS has a very active research programme run by high quality scientists who have produced some significant outcomes in liver cancer research. This collaboration will give our researchers and clinician scientists another opportunity to make a positive contribution that can benefit all cancer patients. Because of our wide patient base, our teams are better exposed and experienced in all types of cancer. Our large base has allowed us to carry out meaningful and effective clinical trials."

Pre-clinical activities are also included in the partnership, under the terms of which the same institutions will be given annual access to up to six novel candidate drugs for appraisal of activity in the mouse in vivo primary HCC explant model.(4)

For both clinical and pre-clinical activities, AstraZeneca retains the option to assume further development and marketing of all drugs made available as part of the partnership deal.

"This partnership with AstraZeneca is testament to the standard and quality of research in Singapore. We will work closely together to develop new anti-cancer therapies for Asian patients through access to some of AstraZeneca's clinical and pre-clinical compounds and world-class training of our researchers at MCRC," said Associate Professor Goh Boon Cher, Senior Consultant, Dept of Haematology-Oncology, National University Hospital.
