Potential Risk-Reducing Factors For Investors
• Strategic partnering with pharma to finance phase-2 trial and to
broaden clinical indications

companies have initiated

product candidates

it’s investment philosophy (near-term exit, high-value inflection point)
• Raising non-dilutive capital from government- (e.g. SBIR, HHS, NCI)
and Non-Government Organizations (e.g. CVAF, LLS, CPRIT)
• Sign-off from FDA on clinical development path towards approval,
following recent positive FDA meeting
