Indian American Scientist at Work on Multi-targeted Drug

Ananda M. Chakrabarty, an Indian American scientist, has held out a hope of a multi-targeted drug that could help simultaneously treat several diseases including cancer, HIV/AIDS and malaria. //

"I am trying to develop a multi-targeted drug that would work against several diseases like cancer malaria and HIV/AIDS. We have just applied to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are studying how to move forward," Chakrabarty told the media here Saturday.

Laboratory tests have established that the candidate drug works effectively on breast cancer and melonoma or skin cancer in case of mice, helping in shrinkage of tumour by 65-85 percent.

Malaria tests done in a Chicago laboratory and tests on European, Indian and African strains of HIV done in a Pitsburg laboratory have also provided the hope of a cure through the use of protein produced by pseudomonas aeruginosa, a gram-negative bacterium.

"I am putting my trust on bugs to offer a complete alternative to chemotherapy in case of cancer. I would like to set up an institute in India in partnership to undertake research and develop next generation of products that will target cancers, viruses and parasites with one drug," said Chakrabarty at a lecture organised jointly by the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce and a pharma industry lobby.

In India to address industry bodies during a five-city tour on his vision of India as a knowledge hub, Chakrabarty urged the industry leaders to help nurture innovation.

Expressing keenness to bring his candidate drug to the market after the mandatory clearances and clinical trials, he said it might take three years and about $10 million investment to reach the first phase of human clinical trial to test it for toxicity.

The US FDA may require his newly founded company CDG Therapeutics, which holds exclusive commercial rights to the patent held by the Unive
