A Copper Complex as Anti-Tumor Agents

05.09.2012
</a><strong>Background</strong><br>

There is still a considerable demand for the improvement of cytotoxic cancer therapeutics regarding the toxicity and the tolerance. While platinum-based chemotherapy is the standard of care for patients with lung cancer, other metal-containing agents could not be established in the treatment of cancer diseases.<br><br>

<strong>Technology</strong><br> Therefore, we offer a novel copper-based compound, displaying strong and selective anti-tumor activity in a broad range of hematological cancers and solid tumors, high efficiency against relapse, improved tolerance and reduced toxicity.<br><br> In vitro studies revealed strong apoptotic and anti-proliferative effects of metal- organic copper sarcolysin (MOC*Scr) in comparison to other cytotoxic drugs. When combined with other cytotoxic drugs, MOC*Scr showed strong synergistic effects pointing towards a different mechanism. Furthermore, MOC*Scr demonstrated potent activity in cell lines resistant to other standard drugs such as Vincristin, Daunorubicin and Doxorubicin. Additional in vivo studies revealed that the MOC*Src treatment leads to significant tumor growth reduction of 60-90% in syngenic and xenograft tumor models. Also terminal stage IV patients benefited from the treatment with MOC compound in investigator initiated trials.<br><br> Thus, these results position MOC*Scr as an exciting new cancer therapeutic agent.<br><br> <b>Benefits:</b><ul> <li>Excellent anti-tumor activity and synergistic effect with other cytotoxic drugs</li> <li>Wide spectrum of application including solid tumors and hematological cancers</li> <li>Overcomes resistances ex vivo</li> <li>Convenient oral administration</li> <li>Small molecule with short and simple synthesis</li></ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> EP and PCT (DE, EP, AU, BR, CA, CN, IN, JP, RU, US) application filed in February 2008 and February 2009 <br><br> <strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> Technology Development Funds of Investitionsbank Berlin

Im Focus: Strathclyde-led research develops world's highest gain high-power laser amplifier

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.

The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
