Progen Provides Update on Phase 3 Clinical Program for PI-88 in Liver Cancer
Date:12/21/2007

BRISBANE, Australia, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Progen Pharmaceuticals Limited (ASX: PGL; Nasdaq: PGLA) today provided an update on clinical trial enrollment associated with its phase 3 hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC, primary liver cancer) study. The study has begun initiating sites and is now open for patient recruitment, though a thorough examination of available surgical cases has not yet found any eligible patients who are able to be enrolled by 31 December 2007. Consequently, the Company now anticipates that first patient in will be achieved early in the new year. Given the delay is solely due to the first site being initiated so close to year-end, the Company does not expect that this will have any impact on overall study timelines or registration strategy.

At this point in time, Progen has received regulatory approval to conduct the phase 3 trial in several countries. The Company has also obtained ethics approval at five trial centres, one of which has been initiated and is open to recruitment. Further regulatory and ethics approvals will follow early in 2008, and sites will be initiated as soon as they are able to begin enrollment.

About PI-88: PI-88 is one of a new class of multi-targeted cytostatic cancer therapeutics. It is a novel anti-cancer compound with a first-in-class mechanism as a heparan sulfate mimetic. Its anti-tumor activity is based on inhibition of two biological processes -- angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels) and metastasis (the spread of cancer to other sites) -- critical to the growth and progression of cancer. In April 2007, data from a randomized phase II trial in the post resection liver cancer setting was presented at the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) meeting in Barcelona, Spain. PI-88, in this disease setting, has been granted Orphan Drug designation by the European Medicines Evaluation Agency (EMEA) and Fast Track designation by the United States Food and Drug Administr
