We describe below a patient who has shown a response to combination of chemotherapy with Elenagen, a plasmid encoding p62. Elenagen was tested in a previous phase I/II study in patients with refractory solid tumors and shown to be safe. Also, plasmid ability to halt tumor progression and restore sensitivity to chemotherapy was found. Preclinical data supports effects on tumor grade and change the tumor's microenvironment in spontaneous canine breast cancers. We describe here a 48-year old female with triple-negative and BRCA1/2-negative breast cancer who had a primary resistance to chemotherapy and negative dynamics despit...

TahtamouniAbstractCephalostatin 1, a potent anti-cancer agent, is a natural bis-steroidal alkaloid that causes cell death in the subnanomolar to picomolar ranges via an atypical apoptosis pathway. Although cephalostatin 1 is a highly effective anticancer drug, its availability limits its utilization. We previously reported the synthesis of two 12'α-hydroxy derivatives of cephalostatin 1 that induce cell death by activating the ER str...
