Late Breaking Session features very important papers with high impact factors

PETACH TIKVA, Israel, Sept. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Can-Fite BioPharma Ltd. (NYSE MKT: CANF) (TASE: CFBI), a biotechnology company with a pipeline of proprietary small molecule drugs being developed to treat inflammatory diseases, cancer and sexual dysfunction, today announced the Company's CEO, Dr. Pnina Fishman will present data at the 24th European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology's (EADV) Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark on Saturday, October 10, 2015.

The presentation titled, "Treatment of Plaque-type Psoriasis with Oral CF101:  Data from a Phase II/III Clinical Trial," will be part of the Late Breaking News session at this premier annual dermatology conference. Can-Fite previously reported positive data from further analysis of its completed Phase II/III study that suggests CF101 as a potential systemic therapy for patients with moderate-severe psoriasis, this despite the study not meeting its primary endpoint, as previously announced during the first quarter of 2015. Based on these findings, Can-Fite expects to complete the design of its Phase III study protocol by the end of 2015.

The 24th EADV Congress is Europe's largest dermatology and venereology conference where the latest cutting edge research and newest developments in the field will be presented.
