Hard to Treat Diseases, Inc. (HTDS) Reports on New Uses For Ribavirin
Date:5/20/2009

BELGRADE, SERBIA, May 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Hard to Treat Diseases, Inc. (HTDS:PK)http://www.htdsmedical.com reports that researchers in its Slavica BioChem division have advised of some significant new advances recently announced regarding the drug Ribavirin; one of the drugs with which they are currently conducting research.

On Wednesday, May 13, 2009, Health and Medicine Magazine reported that:

        A ground-breaking Canada-wide clinical trial led by Dr. Katherine
        Borden, at the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC)
        of the Universite de Montreal, has shown that a common anti-viral
        drug, ribavirin, can be beneficial in the treatment of cancer
        patients. Published in the journal Blood (First Edition), the study
        demonstrates that ribavirin suppresses the activities of the eIF4E
        gene in patients. This gene is dysregulated in 30 percent of cancers
        including breast, prostate, head and neck, colon and stomach cancer.

Interested readers can view a CTV news report on the story at http://watch.ctv.ca/news/top-picks/old-drug-new-use/#clip173867 .

The story is of interest as Slavica BioChem is currently conducting research into the use of Ribavirin for use in the treatment of diseases of the Central Nervous system such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Studies conducted involved using a combination of ribavirin and tiazofurin and have shown promising results in test animals to date.

One of the benefits of working with established drugs such as ribavirin, which has been in use approximately twenty years, is that the significant experience and history of the drug make it easier to obtain approval for use in new applications, such as the research that has been conducted by Slavica
