The Pittsburgh Life Sciences Greenhouse Adds New Companies to its Investment Portfolio

tionary radiation dose calculation engine which enables a new generation of highly accurate, extremely fast treatment planning for full adaptive radiotherapy that can eliminate the accuracy/speed trade-off problem that currently exists in the radiation therapy treatment planning process. Until now, both accuracy and speed could not be reached simultaneously during treatment planning. ProACTive's(TM) increased speed and accuracy can create highly precise individualized treatments that will significantly improve patient quality of life and drastically reduce the potential of the radiation destroying the healthy tissue that surrounds the cancerous tumor.

The PLSG's $200,000 investment in ThermalTherapeutics Systems, Inc. will help with the development of a prototype pump for delivering chemotherapy more effectively. The TTS device will deliver both intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IPC) and intraperitoneal hyperthermic chemotherapy (IPHC) to treat metastastic abdominal cancers regardless of primary site, especially ovarian and colon cancer. No device currently exists which has been specifically designed to treat advanced abdominal cancers. The ability to deliver intraperitoneal hyperthermic treatment for disseminated abdominal cancer, therefore, represents a significant advancement in the treatment for a sizable population of cancer patients; substantially improving the quality of life for those undergoing treatment.

The attention that both IPC and IPHC are receiving for the treatment of ovarian, colon, rectal and additional abdominal cancers creates potential for the TTS product to make an important impact on cancer treatment.
