PRP is a formulation of two pancreatic proenzymes, which work together to fight malignant tumors. The results of the study come as Propanc is preparing for a First-in-Human trial of the drug in 2020.

“We are excited to publish this paper on our work with PRP and CSCs, where these cells drive cancer,” Propanc's Chief Science Officer Julian Kenyon said in the statement. 

“PRP has multiple modes of action, quite unlike any other cancer drug and is clearly in a class of its own. This is likely to translate into PRP being effective in many different cancer types and reducing the recurrence rate after standard treatments.”

The Scientific Reports article is entitled “Pancreatic proenzymes treatment suppresses BXPC-3 pancreatic Cancer Stem Cell subpopulation and impairs tumor engrafting”

Propanc's share price slid 9.6% to $1.99 on Monday.
