Under a Special Protocol Assessment from the FDA, the phase 3 trial will target STS patients who have relapsed or are refractory following prior chemotherapy treatment. In January, the FDA approved continued dosing until disease progression.

Two phase trials are underway for assess the safety and efficacy of aldoxorubicin in patients with unresectable glioblastoma multiforme and Kaposi's sarcoma.

Quick assets totaled $38.5M at years end.

The company raised $86M in a secondary offering last month.

Mutual fund ownership has increased from 21 to 25 over the past 4 quarters.

    Does anyone know why the phase 3 for STS is treating 2nd line patients, but the 2b was first line? I know the 1/2a was also 2nd line but that was only 13 patients. I'm just surprised that they would switch it up like this. Thanks.
