President and CEO Steven Kriegsman, along with company Vice President of Business Development and Investor Relations David Haen, is accessible online in its entirety. The interview discusses various details about CytRx, including its product pipeline, business model, 2013 accomplishments and important new developments.
CytRx is a biopharmaceutical research and development company engaged in the development of cancer drugs for various indications. The company's primary focus is on its proprietary delivery technology for potent oncology therapies.
Among subjects discussed in the interview is CytRx's lead candidate, aldoxorubicin, which is an improved version of doxorubicin, the widely used chemotherapy agent.

CytRx holds the exclusive global rights to aldoxorubicin.
Phase 2b results for aldoxorubicin are expected in December of this year, and a pivotal Phase III trial with a special protocol assessment is scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2014.

Additionally, Kriegsman and Haen talk about their own backgrounds and industry experience and detail the rest of the company's management team, as well.
