MELBOURNE, Australia, Dec. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Propanc Biopharma Inc. (OTCQB: PPCB) ("Propanc Biopharma" or "the Company"), a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company focusing on development of new and proprietary treatments for cancer patients suffering from solid tumors such as pancreatic, ovarian and colorectal cancers, today announced that the Company's Chief Executive Officer, Mr James Nathanielsz, will be presenting at the 10th Annual Biotech Showcase to be held on January 8 – 10, 2018, at the Hilton, Union Square, San Francisco, CA. The Company's presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, January 10, 2018, at 10:30 a.m., PST.
Mr Nathanielsz will provide an overview of the Company and recent advancements of its lead product, PRP, during the live presentation and will be available to participate in one-on-one meetings with attendees who are registered to attend the conference.
Additionally, Mr Nathanielsz will be available to participate in investor and partnering meetings surrounding the 36th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference to be held January 8-11, 2018 in San Francisco, CA. Investors are encouraged to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a meeting.
"I am looking forward to presenting at the upcoming conference and providing an update on the recent developments of PRP, as we prepare for filing our first clinical trial application in early 2018," said Mr Nathanielsz.
Currently progressing towards First-In-Human studies, PRP aims to prevent tumor recurrence and metastasis from solid tumors. Eighty percent of all cancers are solid tumors and metastasis is the main cause of patient death from cancer. According to the World Health Organization, 8.2 million people died from cancer in 2012. Consequently, a report by IMS Health states innovative therapies are driving the global oncology market to meet demand, which is expected to reach $150 billion by 2020. The Company's initial target patient populations are pancreatic, ovarian and colorectal cancers, representing an estimated combined market segment of $14 billion in 2020, according to GBI Research.

About Propanc Biopharma:
Propanc Biopharma is a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing new cancer treatments initially for patients suffering from pancreatic, ovarian and colorectal cancers. We have developed a formulation of anti-cancer compounds, which exert a number of effects designed to control or prevent tumors from recurring and spreading throughout the body. Our products involve or employ pancreatic proenzymes, which are inactive precursors of enzymes. In the near term, we intend to target patients with limited remaining therapeutic options for the treatment of solid tumors. In future, we intend to develop our lead product to treat (i) early stage cancer and (ii) pre-cancerous diseases and (iii) as a preventative measure for patients at risk of developing cancer based on genetic screening.
