National Cancer Institute Chemical Biology Consortium to coordinate academic, private and government cancer drug discovery efforts

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Southern Research Institute today announced that it has been selected as one of 11 organizations to help establish the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Chemical Biology Consortium (CBC)--a program meant to coordinate and accelerate the discovery and development of new therapeutic agents to treat cancer patients. Southern Research will establish one of NCI's five Comprehensive Chemical Biology Centers at its Birmingham campus.

"We are very pleased that Southern Research was selected to participate in this new program to expedite and coordinate the discovery and development of new cancer therapies," said W.

The search for newer and better drugs is never-ending, and something cancer patients and their families depend upon."

Southern Research has a remarkable cancer-fighting track record having already discovered six FDA-approved drugs currently used in the treatment of cancer--amifostine, fludarabine, dacarbazine, lomustine, carmustine and clofarabine--with seven additional drugs in late stage preclinical and early clinical trials. Scientists at Southern Research have also evaluated approximately 50 percent of all FDA-approved cancer drugs currently available for patients.
