About Critical Outcome Technologies Inc. (COTI)

COTI is a biopharmaceutical company advancing the treatment of cancer through targeted therapeutics. The Company's lead compound, COTI-2, has a novel p53-dependent mechanism of action with selective and potent anti-cancer activity. The initial indication is in gynecologic cancers (ovarian, cervical and endometrial) that will begin patient dosing in a Phase 1 clinical trial at MD Anderson Cancer Center in early 2016. The Company has secured orphan drug status for the ovarian indication in the U.S. and is planning additional studies in other cancer indications such as head & neck, Li-Fraumeni syndrome and AML as well as combination therapies with other leading cancer drugs. Pre-clinical data provides evidence to suggest a potentially dramatic change in the treatment of cancers with mutations of the p53 gene.
