CB1400, Patented by Canopus BioPharma, Prevents Tumor Growth and Enhances the Anti-Tumor Effects of Cisplatin and Cetuximab (Erbitux).
Date:6/19/2008

(Erbitux) alone. An almost 30% increase in efficacy was observed with the addition of CB1400 to cetuximab, increasing tumor inhibition to 89.4%, confirming a synergistic effect of combining the two anti-tumor drugs. Similar to the cisplatin study, there was no significant difference in mean weight or survival between the groups of mice; and no toxicity was observed in this study.

Cetuximab is a chimeric monoclonal antibody, an epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor used as a chemotherapeutic agent, administered by IV injection for the treatment of various cancers. Enhancing the efficacy of cetuximab may have potential in treating patients no longer responding to traditional chemotherapy.
