Hard To Treat Diseases (HTDS) Slavica BioChem Update on Research Activities
Date:4/22/2009

BELGRADE, April 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Hard To Treat Diseases (HTDS) www.htdsmedical.com - HTDS chief scientist Dr. Sanja Pekovic provided updates from a recent medical convention held in Antwerpen; Joint Meeting 2009 Anatomische Gesellschaft - Nederlandse Anatomen Vereniging, Antwerpen, 27-30 March 2009.

Dr. Pekovic reported on the results of recent positive testing being conducted related to the CNS disorder multiple sclerosis and in suppression of reactive astrogliosis after brain injury. This led to a number of preliminary talks for future collaboration with other scientists working in the field. A more detailed review of the research results will be posted separately on the Pink Sheets as a supplementary filing shortly. Notably, this work was supported by the European Cooperation in the Field of Scientific and Technical Research (COST) organization.

Dr. Pekovic also reported the scientific team has started some in vitro studies of purine nucleoside analogues (ribavirin, tiazofurin, the drugs we are investigating) effects on microglial cell culture (there is no current data in the literature about their effect on microglia) in collaboration with professor Thomas Herdegen from Kiel University, Germany, who is also a member of COST as a representative of Germany. Over the last 3 months in the lab, our technicians have learned how to establish microglial cell culture, a valuable next step in the continued research.

HTDS will be providing additional funding to further this work, at the IBISS INSTITUT ZA BIOLOSKA ISTRAZIVANJA SINISA STANKOVIC for Project 143005 headed by professor Mirjana Stojiljkovic.
