Founder says Panasci winner could be "a rapid growth biotech company"

PhotoZyne will seek expanded laboratory space in Buffalo – possibly at one of the facilities on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus – as it continues research and development into technology that aims to deliver cancer therapies without the severe effects of chemotherapy. The company will simultaneously pursue federal grants in the Small Tech Transfer Research program, which includes a phase one award of $225,000 and a phase two award of $1.5 million. “It’s a platform technology, so it has…

In conclusion, our results show that the effect of paclitaxel and oxaliplatin on the structural plasticity of DRG is retained ex vivo (for at least 30 days) and suggest the use of DRG explants derived from chemotherapy-treated mice as an efficient method to investigate the mechanisms underlying CIPN and test for possible therapeutic targets.

Abstract Reducing the adverse effects of chemotherapy on normal cells such as endothelial cells is a determinant factor of treatment success especially in pregnant women. In this regard, modulatory effect of L-arginine on various cancers is still a controversial topic in cancer therapy. So, this study aimed to compare the effect of L-arginine treatment alone and in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) on the survival and angiogenesis of primary human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and the breast cancer cell line of MDA-MB-468. Combinations of L-arginine and 5-FU increased cell survival in HUVECs but i...

ConclusionsFindings from this study highlight that real-world experience of docetaxel may differ from that observed in clinical trials and that care must be taken to ensure that treatment options are tailored to the needs of individual patients to promote not only how long patients survive but also the quality of that survival.FundingJanssen

ConclusionApplication of cytostatic drugs in combination with adaptogenic plant extracts induced significant changes in transcriptome-wide microarray profiles of neuroglial cells. These changes indicate on potential beneficial effects of adaptogens on FEC induced adverse events in cancer chemotherapy.Graphical abstract

Publication date: January 2019Source: Biomedicine &Pharmacotherapy, Volume 109Author(s): Xin Zhang, Kaikai Ding, Jian Wang, Xingang Li, Peng ZhaoAbstractGlioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and aggressive primary human brain tumor. Although comprehensive therapies combining radiotherapy and chemotherapy after surgery can prolong survival, the prognosis is still poor with a median survival of only 14.6 months. Chemoresistance is one of the major causes of relapse as well as poor survival in glioma patients. Therefore, novel strategies to overcome chemoresistance are desperately needed for improved treatment ...

Publication date: Available online 30 October 2018Source: Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical and Engineering AspectsAuthor(s): Hongchao Ma, Shuo Li, Hao Zhang, Yanhui Wei, Lei JiangAbstractThe combined therapeutic strategy have aroused significant interest in cancer therapy due to its enhanced treatment efficacy and reduced side effects. This paper describes the combined chemo- and photothermal therapy of cancer based on PDA@(PDDA-ADA)3-Dox nanocomposites. Polydopamine (PDA) serves not only as photothermal agent with strong near infrared absorbance and high energy conversion efficiency, but also as a core material to...

(Natural News) Two thousand years ago, Hippocrates said that food should be the medicine. Recent developments mirror that ancient saying when it comes to cancer therapy. An Indian study indicated that nutritional therapy possessed certain advantages over chemotherapy as a means of treating the disease. Cancer comes in many forms that attack various parts of...
