The new positions will support both the upcoming product launch of the company’s EU approved therapy for the treatment of brain tumors and the further development of its Nano-Cancer®-therapy in additional cancer indications.  MagForce expects its Nano-Cancer®-therapy will become available at several leading German cancer centers in the first quarter of 2011.
