Wayne State part of team for license on new ways to manage cancer with green tea extracts
Date:11/26/2013

ugh a deep understanding of structure-activity relationships involving the EGCG pharmacophore that my laboratory has researched for many years," said Chan. "We have been working diligently to translate the well-established health benefits of green tea and its major active ingredient, EGCG, to design commercially-viable drug candidates."

Viteava Pharmaceuticals is a privately-held start-up drug development company established to commercialize this intellectual property portfolio. The company's strategy focuses principally on clinical indications where green tea extracts have been demonstrated to elicit biological responses in human studies. Viteava's drug candidates are designed to improve these treatment regimens and achieve better clinical outcomes, while retaining a high level of safety. By regulating multiple pathways important to the progression of diseases such as cancer, Viteava's drug candidates are expected to provide advantages over more potent and more selective drugs that usually only elicit temporary responses together with a high level of toxicity.

Pou's research stemmed from a grant and administrative supplement of over $1.6 million from the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health (grant number 1R01CA120009). The grant, "Roles of polymorphic COMT, tea polyphenols and proteasome in cancer prevention," was initially funded in 2006.
