MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/25/16 -- Propanc Health Group Corporation (OTCQB: PPCH) ("Propanc" or "the Company"), an emerging healthcare 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 it has retained KCSA Strategic Communications, a leading New York-based communications firm, to lead the Company's investor relations and public relations programs.
KCSA will deploy a comprehensive communications campaign to increase awareness of Propanc Health Group Corporation among the investment and media community. Since KCSA's inception more than forty years ago, the firm has developed a strong reputation for its work representing public companies.
"We have taken steps to validate our lead treatment, PRP, by conducting successful animal studies which demonstrated that PRP eradicates cancer stem cells in solid tumors and inhibits tumor growth. We are now embarking on a period of rapid development as we commence the manufacture of enzymes in preparation for first-in-man-studies for PRP, with an initial focus on targeting pancreatic, ovarian and colorectal cancers. This is a significant market opportunity as 80% of all cancers are solid tumors. We look forward to working closely with KCSA to ensure that we are effectively communicating the Company's strategy, objectives and milestones to Wall Street in order to maximize shareholder value," said James Nathanielsz, Propanc's Chief Executive Officer.
"Propanc is executing on a clear strategy to advance into the clinical trial phases and build shareholder value," said Todd Fromer, Managing Partner of KCSA Strategic Communications. "We will work with Propanc to raise awareness of the Company among the institutional investment community and with media and consumer audiences. Based on our successful track record of working with micro-cap companies on the cutting edge of healthcare, we believe KCSA is the right firm to hone the Company's communications strategy and help tell this compelling story to key institutional investors. We look forward to providing our complete range of services to support Propanc's integrated communications initiatives in the healthcare industry."
Propanc is developing new cancer treatments 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.
