SRI International and PhenoMatriX Collaborate to Develop Platin-Based Chemotherapies
Date:12/2/2010

Moos, Ph.D., vice president of SRI's Biosciences Division.  "While we are a minimum of two years away from human clinical testing, each step forward builds on our ability to ultimately benefit cancer patients."

"By working with SRI International, an experienced collaborator whose R&D team has discovered and developed multiple anticancer drugs that have entered clinical trials and gained regulatory approval, we hope to achieve similar success with our new chemotherapeutic platins," said Kosta Steliou, Ph.D., founder, president, and CEO of PhenoMatriX.  "It is also a pleasure to continue working with Dr. Moos and his team on new approaches to improving health and saving lives."  

Douglas V. Faller, M.D., Ph.D., the Karin Grunebaum professor of cancer research and director of the Cancer Center at Boston University Medical Center, of which Dr. Steliou is also a member, commented that "Platins have been the mainstay of chemotherapeutic regimens for a variety of solid tumors for many years. There is clearly a need for the development of more potent, but simultaneously less toxic derivatives, particularly derivatives effective against platin-resistant tumors.  These compounds therefore have the potential to benefit many patients with diverse cancers, and represent a particularly promising development for cancer chemotherapy."
