GTx's actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements as a result of these risks and uncertainties, which include, without limitation, the risks (i) that GTx’s two planned Phase 2 clinical trials of enobosarm in patients with AR positive advanced breast cancer may not be initiated or completed on schedule, or at all, or may otherwise be suspended or terminated; (ii) that the development of enobosarm for the treatment of patients with AR positive advanced breast cancer is at an early stage and is subject to the significant risk of failure inherent in the development of early-stage product candidates; (iii) that GTx may not be able to obtain required regulatory approvals to advance the development of or commercialize enobosarm in a timely manner or at all; and (iv) that GTx will continue to need additional funding and may be unable to raise capital when needed, which would force GTx to delay, reduce or eliminate its enobosarm development program. GTx’s actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements as a result of these risks and uncertainties. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which apply only as of the date of this press release.
