l, who think 'outside the box' in devising new ways to combat cancer," commented Mr. Barrett.  "Early data suggest that combining his pioneering work in hormone receptor-targeting therapies with novel anticancer agents could be a promising approach, and we welcome the opportunity to help advance this technology to the next stage."

Pennington's William Hansel Cancer Prevention research unit was established in 2005 to honor Dr. Hansel's contributions to the field.  Cancer researchers at LSU's Feist Weiller Cancer Center in Shreveport are also conducting research for K94 Discoveries.

Dr. Hansel noted, "The name K94 is in honor of the men of Company K of the 94th Division in General Patton's Third Army, which I commanded in World War II.  Their willingness to take on big challenges and confront daunting risks inspire me to persevere in the fight against cancer.  I have long been intrigued by the anticancer potential of certain naturally-occurring compounds such as curcumin, and look forward to assessing its cancer-fighting potential in combination with the powerful hormone receptor-targeting technology we discovered here at LSU."

Toxicology testing on the company's lead compounds is expected to commence soon, with human clinical trials targeted for 2015.
