New Cancer Drug Shrinks All Tumors!?!
A new cancer treatment shrinks every kind of tumor it's been tested on. The Stanford Medical Center team has so far only tested the antibody on human cancer cells in petri dishes and in mice, but the results have been impressive: 10 out of the 10 tumors in mice shrank and in nine of the 10 mice, the cancer did not spread to their lymph nodes.

This is a potentially huge breakthrough in the fight to cure cancer. The amazing work was done by a team at the Stanford University Medical Center that piggybacked on the knowledge that people with cancer have a lot more of these surface markers, called CD47, that say to the immune system, "don't eat me", essentially protecting bad cancer cells from being killed off. So they designed an antibody to shut these CD-47s up and introduced it into human cancer cells - not into humans directly yet, but in cells they took from humans and put in petri dishes and lab mice, and it worked: they found that when a variety of tumors, ranging from breast to brain, were hit with the antibody treatment, the CD47s were blocked, resulting in shrinking tumors, and a stopping of the spread of cancer. It worked in 10 out of the 10 mice they tested it on. This is so good, so groundbreaking, the team is now working with a $20 million grant to move from mouse trials to safety tests in humans. Now these results are maybe the most exciting ever in the history of cancer research, but there's still a ton of work to do. The microenvironment of a tumor interacting with the rest of the human body is way more complicated than treating a transplanted tumor in a mouse or one that's just lying in a petri dish. Tumors in humans could have additional immune suppressing effects that scientists will have to overcome and the antibody treatment used in this study could also create unknown side effects on the rest of the body. But that said, this story makes it seems like the fight to cure cancer is becoming more winnable by the day.

Cisplatin-bearing SPIONs for targeted drug delivery - Video abstract 63433
Video abstract of original research paper "Development and characterization of magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles with a cisplatin-bearing polymer coating for targeted drug delivery" published in the open access International Journal of Nanomedicine by Unterweger H, Tietze R, Janko C, et al. Abstract A highly selective and efficient cancer therapy can be achieved using magnetically directed superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) bearing a sufficient amount of the therapeutic agent. In this project, SPIONs with a dextran and cisplatin-bearing hyaluronic acid coating were successfully synthesized as a novel cisplatin drug delivery system. Transmission electron microscopy images as well as X-ray diffraction analysis showed that the individual magnetite particles were around 4.5 nm in size and monocrystalline. The small crystallite sizes led to the superparamagnetic behavior of the particles, which was exemplified in their magnetization curves, acquired using superconducting quantum interference device measurements. Hyaluronic acid was bound to the initially dextran-coated SPIONs by esterification. The resulting amide bond linkage was verified using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The additional polymer layer increased the vehicle size from 22 nm to 56 nm, with a hyaluronic acid to dextran to magnetite weight ratio of 51:29:20. A maximum payload of 330 μg cisplatin/mL nanoparticle suspension was achieved, thus the particle size was further increased to around 77 nm with a zeta potential of -45 mV. No signs of particle precipitation were observed over a period of at least 8 weeks. Analysis of drug-release kinetics using the dialysis tube method revealed that these were driven by inverse ligand substitution and diffusion through the polymer shell as well as enzymatic degradation of hyaluronic acid. The biological activity of the particles was investigated in a nonadherent Jurkat cell line using flow cytometry. Further, cell viability and proliferation was examined in an adherent PC-3 cell line using xCELLigence analysis. Both tests demonstrated that particles without cisplatin were biocompatible with these cells, whereas particles with the drug induced apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner, with secondary necrosis after prolonged incubation. In conclusion, combination of dextran-coated SPIONs with hyaluronic acid and cisplatin represents a promising approach for magnetic drug targeting in the treatment of cancer.

Targeting tumours: Challenges of antibody-drug conjugates
Treating cancer requires aggressive but targeted therapy. Some cancer drugs are too toxic because they damage healthy cells as well as tumor cells. So researchers are trying to develop ways to make sure drugs only target the right cells. One solution is to attach drugs to antibodies specific to a protein expressed on tumour cells. These drugs are called antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs). More than two dozen ADCs are currently being used in the clinic to treat diseases like Hodgkin's lymphoma and breast cancer, and researchers are developing many more. But it's taken decades to find the right combination of drug, antibody target and linker, and then make sure the right amount of ADC hits the tumor. In this 3D animation, produced by Nature Biotechnology, we hear about these challenges and the ways ADCs target cells. This content is editorially independent of sponsors.

Cancer cure: Promising new gene therapy drug reprograms immune cells to kill cancer - TomoNews
SILVER SPRING, MARYLAND— A panel of experts advising the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has unanimously recommended the approval of a new cancer drug from pharmaceutical giant Novartis. The drug would be used to treat people suffering from leukemia. The New York Times reports that tisagenlecleucel is a gene therapy drug used to treat a blood cancer known as B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia in patients aged 3 to 25. The drug uses chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, which reprograms immune cells to defeat cancer. The treatment first extracts a patient's own T-cells, then genetically modifies them using tisagenlecleucel to grow new receptors. These receptors target CD19, a protein expressed by malignant B-cells. Copies of the new cells are grown in the lab by the millions and injected back into the patient, where they then attack the cancer cells. In one test, the treatment led to complete remission in 83% of 52 patients. But it has potentially deadly short-term side effects, such as high fevers, low blood pressure, and lung problems. It's unclear what the long-term side effects are, if any. Therefore, patients who received treatment are recommended to be monitored for 15 years. The FDA will likely decide whether or not to approve the Novartis drug in the next few months. If they do, it will be the first gene therapy drug of its kind to hit the U.S. market. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

In the interview he discusses early clinical experience of intermittently delivering carboplatin directly to paediatric brainstem tumours using a novel implantable neurosurgical device. The device consists of four very fine catheters that are implanted deep within the brain using a dedicated robotic technique. Chemotherapeutic drugs can then be injected directly into the site the tumour via a technique called convection enhanced delivery (CED). The device was originally developed for delivering a protein therapy to adults with Parkinson’s disease and is now being tested in children with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a tumour that is not amenable to surgical resection.

Invention 8 - DJK - Gold Nanoparticle Cancer-Drug Delivery System
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvu6n-GsGFsYNp-TFHeYOrB_bpaYYrjHM NanoGuard Pharmaceuticals (NG) introduces a gold nanoparticle-based anti-cancer drug delivery system for clinicians and researchers to combat hard-to-reach and inoperable cancers. Nano-sized structured, our product reaches cancers with enhanced accumulation and causes heat-related tumor ablation via infrared excitation. Non-toxic, it can differentiate tumors from normal tissues even 48-hours post-injection. The technology is owned by National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. Currently the product faces competition from liposomes, polymers, gels, and sprays which all can exhibit similar functions of delivering anti-drug medicine. Around 15% of market specializes in nanoparticle-based delivery system. Thus, the market is considered very competitive. However, the product has competitive advantages as a versatile cancer treatment method with unparalleled specifications. The overall market for cancer treatment is expected to value at USD 80 Billion with sustained double-digit growth rate. It is believed that penetrating into developed countries such as the US and EU, where the demand for high-end cancer treatment is high, can yield a tremendous return. Meanwhile, these regions have strict patent protection, ensuring NG’s competitive advantage over 20 years. The product is currently at medical phase 0. R&D of additional 10-15 years with investment amounted to USD $1.5 billion is expected before launching. Once the product is clinically usable, NG will market the product to hospitals and treatment centers to sell off the solution priced at a medium level. NG only collects payment monthly based on the quantity the agents have sold out during that period, allowing NG to capture market share steadily by shifting the inventory risk away from the agents. Ideally, such a business model would generate USD 750 Mn revenue in the first year with CAGR at 20% in next 10 years and finally stabilizes at USD 4.6 Bn annually for additional 10 years at 30% margin. Considering burn rate of 200 million annually for 10 years, the IRR is 15%. However, the actual IRR may range from 10-20%. The Management Team of NG now constitutes of two postgraduate professionals in charge of technical solutions, three medical advisors with strong soft skills for pitching plus two business-side marketing and finance experts.

Invention 1 - MCW-GX- Redefining Precision Delivery in Cancer
(https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvu6n-GsGFsYNp-TFHeYOrB_bpaYYrjHM NanoRed Therapeutics Redefining Precision Delivery in Cancer Many promising cancer therapies fail to benefit patients because of the toxicity from systemic administration. NanoRed’s technology overcomes this problem by enabling site-specific delivery of chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and other anti-tumor therapies, granting the physician precise control of treatment. NanoRed’s therapy treats tumors and engages the immune system to eliminate residual disease while sparing the patient from severe toxicities that are common with current treatments. Childhood rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is an Orphan Disease, which urgently requires new therapies. NanoRed’s drug, an infrared activated chemotherapeutic liposome solves the core problems associated with standard therapies. After proof-of-concept in RMS, NanoRed’s technology will be applied to other cancers, as a “one pathway-many diseases” paradigm. Our Solution NanoRed’s infrared activated liposomes will be administered to patients intravenously. Liposomes contain IL-12, a potent immunostimulant, which is toxic when given systemically. Illumination with infrared allows physicians to specifically release IL-12 immunotherapy directly into the tumor, avoiding systemic toxicities. Activated liposomes also contain HPPH, which upon illumination can directly kill tumor cells, generating a pro-immunogenic environment. This dual action therapy generates a long lasting, anti-tumor immune response to eliminate residual disease. The end result is a more effective, less toxic therapy. Development Pathway We project that $1.2M will fund preclinical work, while $8M will fund a Phase I clinical trial. NanoRed will pursue funding sources such as Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants and will leverage NCI resources to accelerate development. Out-licensing the initial clinical program after achieving clinical proof of concept delivers value to investors and accelerates the roll out of our therapy in RMS and other malignancies. Targeted therapies are in demand, generating licensing deals worth $334M (median deal) in upfront and milestone payments (Thompson Reuters). Management Team NanoRed’s team is composed of experienced biotech industry veterans, chemists, immunologists, pharmacologists, toxicologists and entrepreneurs with 23 years of cumulative experience. The team is advised by industry leaders from the pharmaceutical, biotech and investment sectors. NanoRed’s vision is to harness a new, precise delivery platform to bring next generation cancer therapies that are less toxic and more effective to patie Music: www.bensound.com and http://www.purple-planet.com Logo and animation produced by studio OY

FCSC - OncopHore Nanotechnologies – Elevator Pitch
Conventional drug delivery of cancer therapeutics suffers from several limitations. Moreover, the most recently developed anti-cancer agents possess poor water solubility resulting in sub-optimal drug delivery to the tumor. Nanotechnology based drug delivery systems ensure targeted delivery of a therapeutic agent while reducing the required dose and side effects of conventional drug therapies. With fewer anti-cancer drugs in pipelines and a high FDA rejection rate, there is a high demand for nanoparticle drug delivery systems to reignite interest in formally rejected chemotherapeutics. Reformulating discontinued anticancer agents using nanoparticles can significantly improve the sensitivity and efficacy of these compounds and will help pharmaceutical companies gain marketing exclusivity and patent protection. OncopHore Nanotechnologies offers a unique nanoparticle designed by a physicist at the University of Pennsylvania and covered by a patent. This nanoparticle relies on the physicochemical properties of the coated peptides to selectively target cancerous cells. The increased metabolic activity of cancer cells contributes to tumor acidosis. Our nanoparticle is a 20 nm, biocompatible particle, coated with low molecular weight peptides (17-amino acid.) This particle facilitates the packaging of lipophilic or unstable drugs or genes, protecting them from degradation in plasma. The nanoparticle takes advantage of the slightly acidic pH (6.5-7.0) surrounding cancer cells to deliver the drug within the vicinity of cancer cells. Currently approved nanoparticle-based drug delivery vehicles such as liposomes, polymerosomes, and PEGylated nanoparticles require internalization, releasing the drug cargo intracellularly. Moreover, other pH-triggered nanoparticles currently being studied are comparatively larger in size (~80 nm) and require a 100-fold change in pH which only occurs intracellularly. The disadvantages of these targeted nanoparticles include 1) high manufacturing cost 2) immune related toxicity 3) degradation of drugs by intracellular enzymes and 3) inefficiency due to varied tumor complexity. Thus, our ultra pH-sensitive nanoparticle will not only help reduce the drug dosage and toxicity while increasing potency of cancer treatments, but will also render increased tumor penetration with dense stroma. The global market for nanotechnology drug delivery systems is projected to increase to $45 billion by 2019, with CAGR of 23% for the period of 2014 to 2019. Oncophore Nanotechnologies will dominate over 25% of this market after launching this nanoparticle. We are based in Philadelphia, PA, with core founding members from the Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania and the University of Pennsylvania with diverse expertise in scientific research. Our team of world-class scientists and business experts are ready to change the way drugs are delivered and improve cancer management for millions of people.

Polymeric nanoparticles for targeted oncotherapy – Video abstract 56932
Video abstract of a review paper "Polymeric nanoparticles for targeted treatment in oncology: current insights" published in the open access International Journal of Nanomedicine by Prabhu RH, Patravale VB, Joshi MD. Abstract: Chemotherapy, a major strategy for cancer treatment, lacks the specificity to localize the cancer therapeutics in the tumor site, thereby affecting normal healthy tissues and advocating toxic adverse effects. Nanotechnological intervention has greatly revolutionized the therapy of cancer by surmounting the current limitations in conventional chemotherapy, which include undesirable biodistribution, cancer cell drug resistance, and severe systemic side effects. Nanoparticles (NPs) achieve preferential accumulation in the tumor site by virtue of their passive and ligand-based targeting mechanisms. Polymer-based nanomedicine, an arena that entails the use of polymeric NPs, polymer micelles, dendrimers, polymersomes, polyplexes, polymer–lipid hybrid systems, and polymer–drug/protein conjugates for improvement in efficacy of cancer therapeutics, has been widely explored. The broad scope for chemically modifying the polymer into desired construct makes it a versatile delivery system. Several polymer-based therapeutic NPs have been approved for clinical use. This review provides an insight into the advances in polymer-based targeted nanocarriers with focus on therapeutic aspects in the field of oncology.

Molecular Oncology: Past, Present and Future of Anti-Cancer Drug Design
The discovery of effective anti-cancer drugs represents one of the greatest challenges to face humanity. Whilst great progress has been made in both our understanding and our ability to discover new treatments, significant challenges remain. Dr Michael J. Waring described the role medicinal chemistry has played in the development of today's established treatments, modern approaches to targeted therapies and future challenges in tackling resistance to these therapies. This was showcased with stories of how some of today's recognised drugs were discovered and how modern medicinal chemistry approaches have been applied to discover new treatments, which show great promise for the future. This was the inaugural RSC Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector Lectureship.
Cancer drugs with nanoparticles gives more effect and fewer side effects
Only a small proportion of cancer drugs are injected into the cancerous tumor cells today. Nanoparticles will ensure that the drugs reach all the way into the cancer tumour before dissolving in the body, causing limited side effects.

New blood-cancer treatment: new drug which may alleviate chemotherapy side effects
Check out our official website: http://us.tomonews.net/ Check out our Android app: http://goo.gl/PtT6VD Check out our iOS app: http://bit.ly/1gO3z1f ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- A new blood cancer drug, a potential alternative to the common chemotherapy drug melphalan but with fewer side effects, has passed a crucial mid-stage trial, according to a Reuters report. The new drug Captisol-enabled melphalan developed by the U.S.-based Spectrum Pharmaceutical does not contain propylene glycol, a chemical believed to be responsible for the side effects of chemotherapy, such as renal and cardiac failure. The injectable drug is now being tested in patients with multiple myeloma undergoing stem cell transplants. Multiple myeloma is a form of blood cancer caused by the proliferation of cancerous plasma cells. As such malignant cells multiply, the normal blood cells will be crowded out. Around 22,000 cases of multiple myeloma are diagnosed in the United States each year. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
