CTI Focuses on Late-Stage Drug Approvals and Commercialization and Cuts Operating Costs: to Close Bresso Research Center
Date:2/27/2009

SEATTLE, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cell Therapeutics, Inc.

These, along with internal company efforts, are a priority and have been taken in order to identify any opportunities. Adjuvant is actively seeking partnerships with global small molecule drug development firms and CROs who could leverage the unique qualifications of the Bresso team and their e
