Progen Pharmaceuticals Limited, a biotechnology company, engages in the discovery, development, and commercialization of small molecule therapeutics primarily for the treatment of cancer. Products PI-88 PI-88 is a carbohydrate-based small-molecule, which is believed to work through two mechanisms. Firstly, it inhibits the enzyme heparanase, which plays a primary role in tumor spread and invasion through surrounding tissues. Secondly, PI-88 exerts an anti-angiogenic effect by inhibiting the interaction between growth factors, heparan sulfate, and cellular receptors. The company has a license and collaboration agreement has been executed with Medigen Biotechnology Corporation (Medigen) for the development and commercialization of muparfostat worldwide. The agreement grants Medigen worldwide and sub-license rights for the commercialization of muparfostat for the therapeutic and prophylactic treatment of cancer. The company has an exclusive worldwide license from the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia, to five families of patents and patent applications relating to PI-88, its sulfated oligosaccharide heparanase inhibitor. Its license rights terminate in 2026. PG545 PG545 is a proprietary synthetic small molecule created to modulate the tumour microenvironment through multiple mechanisms of action. In 2014, the company completed treatment of the first patient cohort where each patient in this group received once-weekly 25mg doses of PG545. PharmaSynth Pty Ltd (PharmaSynth) PharmaSynth, a subsidiary of the company, provides contract pharmaceutical manufacturing development services to the biotechnology industry; and manufactures material for phase 1 to phase 3 clinical trials, as well as manufactures veterinary and animal health products.
