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: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
