Woburn, Mass. – Aphios Corporation, a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing enabling technology platforms and enhanced therapeutic products for chronic, debilitating diseases and improved quality of life today announced that Dr. Trevor P. Castor, President and CEO, will present the Company's technologies, products and plans at the 2013 BIO International Convention. Dr. Castor's presentation will take place on Wednesday, April 24, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. CT in the Chicago Cubs room at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

Aphios' lead therapeutic products include: Zindol, which has successfully completed Phase II/III clinical trials for chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting (CINV); APH-0703, a potent protein kinase C (PKC) activator for ameliorating Alzheimer's disease and cognitive impairment with neuroprotection; APH-0812, a combination therapy consisting of PKC modulators with or without HDAC inhibitors currently entering a Phase I/IIa clinical trial for HIV latency in Spain; AMPI-109, a nontoxic Vitamin D derivative for hormone refractory prostate cancer (HRPCA); and APH-0907, a nanotechnology formulation of insulin in biodegradable polymers that makes insulin orally bioavailable through protection in the digestive tract and stomach, and delivery in the small intestine.

According to Dr. Castor, "We are raising capital to continue clinical development of Zindol and file an NDA for its use as an adjuvant to conventional antiemetics to treat CINV. Zindol also has additional potential applications in post-operative nausea and vomiting, pregnancy related nausea and vomiting and motion sickness nausea and vomiting. The US marketplace for Zindol® could be as high as $3.3 billion."
