Lixte Biotechnology Holdings Announces That Anti-Cancer Activity Against Glioblastoma in an Animal Model Was Reported at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research
Date:4/23/2008

EAST SETAUKET, N.Y., April 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lixte Biotechnology Holdings (OTC Bulletin Board: LIXT) announced today that Dr. Jie Lu and Dr. Zhengping Zhuang of the Surgical Neurology Branch (SNB), National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and its collaborator, Lixte Biotechnology Holdings. Inc., reported at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research that its lead compound LB-1, one of a patent-pending proprietary series of agents, has anti-cancer activity against human glioblastoma multiforme cells in a mouse model of cancer. Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common and aggressive brain tumor of adults.

The Dr. John S. Kovach, President and CEO of Lixte, said that the company and SNB, NINDS are continuing to develop LB-1 and analogs of the compound for the treatment of human brain cancers. Brain cancers pose a particular challenge to the development of effective drug treatments. The brain is protected by a physiological barrier that prevents the entry of many compounds from the blood into brain tissue. To be effective, drugs must be designed either to pass this barrier or be administered directly into the brain. "We are pursuing both strategies for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme in a rat model in which the cancer is growing in the brain," said Dr. Kovach. "We want to be certain that we achieve drug delivery into the brain at concentrations that inhibit these tumors."
