is expected to last 12-15 months.

The CHRISTUS Stehlin Foundation is hopeful about the results of these clinical trials, as CZ48 has been shown in pre-clinical studies to exhibit a broad spectrum of anticancer activity against a wide array of human cancers growing in nude mice with a striking lack of toxicity. CZ48 is also innovative in that it can be taken orally, and pre-clinical studies indicate that it has very few side effects. This makes its appeal even stronger for human cancer treatment.

"We have always felt that CZ48 holds tremendous promise as a cancer treatment, which is why we have worked so diligently to make it available," said Dr. Beppino Giovanella, laboratory director at the CHRISTUS Stehlin Foundation for Cancer Research. "It is our hope that CZ48 will continue the legacy of the foundation and bring renewed hope and life to people around the world who suffer from cancer."

About the CHRISTUS Stehlin Foundation for Cancer Research

The CHRISTUS Stehlin Foundation for Cancer Research has developed and supported many innovative and life-saving treatments for patients with cancer, including being some of the first to recommend a lumpectomy for women with breast cancer. The CHRISTUS Foundation also innovated the use of nude mice in cancer research. Nude mouse tests are now the final, non-human studies required by the National Cancer Institute for determining the effectiveness of potential anticancer agents. Many scientists around the world consider the nude mouse one of the 20th century's most significant breakthroughs in cancer research.

The foundation was established by Dr. John S. Stehlin Jr., a cancer specialist and surgeon, with a specific and urgent mission: to find and develop the most effective treatments for the patient who suffered from cancer in the shortest period of time. In reaction to his mounting frustration with the traditional approach to cancer treatment, he developed a tripartnership concept between
