"I am excited to have been not only interviewed by the Boston Business Journal, but to be shown in such a high-profile position heading into the weekend. This really showcases the attention that we are starting to receive as the clinical trials for our anti-cancer breakthrough drug Kevetrin™ are nearing," said Leo Ehrlich. "Reflecting upon where we were just one year ago, the progression at Cellceutix has been amazing. We're ready to enter clinical trials at the most prestigious cancer institute in the world. Our pre-clinical research has produced the type of astounding data that, if confirmed in human trials, can change the landscape of cancer therapies. We are now regularly engaged by major publications and large pharmaceutical companies wanting to know more about us and our compounds. These developments are being echoed in the attention to our stock. We were only trading about 1,000 shares a week at this time in 2011, but now trading has increased about 30-fold on an average week and our share price has appreciated by more than 150 percent. I still feel very strongly that this is only the beginning and once we start clinical trials with both Kevetrin and KM-133, the attention is going to increase exponentially. I have listened to comparisons of Cellceutix to billion-dollar pharmas and will remain relentless in my efforts to bring those associations to fruition for the benefit of shareholders of Cellceutix."
