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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
