HOUSTON - Moleculin Biotech, Inc., (Nasdaq:MBRX) ("Moleculin" or the "Company"), a clinical stage pharmaceutical company focused on the development of oncology drug candidates, all of which are based on license agreements with The University of Texas System on behalf of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, announced it has formed Moleculin Australia Pty. Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary to oversee preclinical development in Australia.

"The Australian government provides a very aggressive incentive for research and development carried out in their country," commented Walter Klemp, Chairman and CEO of Moleculin. "For companies like Moleculin with less than $20,000,000 AUD group turnover, it can amount to a rebate of up to 43.5% of qualified R&D expenditures. Having an Australian subsidiary provides a great opportunity to speed up preclinical development and reduce the overall cost of our continued drug development efforts."
