sion.  No significant hepatic, renal or pulmonary toxicity has been reported in the literature or overseas commercial experience. 

About Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM)GBM is the most common and most malignant form of brain cancer. Of the estimated 17,000 primary brain tumors diagnosed in the U.S. each year, approximately 60 percent are gliomas. Attention was drawn to this form of brain cancer when Senator Ted Kennedy was diagnosed with glioblastoma and ultimately died from it.

Newly diagnosed patients suffering from GBM are initially treated through invasive brain surgery, although disease progression following surgical resection is nearly 100 percent. Temodar in combination with radiation is the front-line therapy for GBM following surgery. Temodar currently generates more than US$950 million annually in global revenues primarily from the treatment of brain cancer.

Approximately 60 percent of GBM patients treated with Temodar experience tumor progression within one year. Avastin has been approved for the treatment of GBM in patients failing Temodar. According to the Avastin label, approximately 20 percent of patients failing Temodar respond to Avastin therapy.  Analysts anticipate annual Avastin revenues for the treatment of brain cancer may reach US$650 million by 2016.

Approximately 48 percent of patients who are diagnosed with GBM will fail both front-line therapy and Avastin. DelMar Pharma estimates that the market for treating GBM patients the post-Avastin failure exceeds US$200 million annually in North America.
