CytRx Unveils Clinical Development Plan for Pipeline Assets
News Dec 04, 2008
CytRx Corporation has unveiled its corporate strategy to focus its internal resources on the clinical development of oncology drug candidates tamibarotene and INNO-206, which the Company believes offer the greatest mix of near-term and medium-term revenue potential among its clinical assets.
CytRx will pursue partnerships to advance the clinical development of INNO-406 (bafetinib) and its clinical molecular chaperone portfolio, where it continues to see significant future revenue potential.
The Company further intends to use its proprietary high-throughput, high-content drug screening Master Chaperone Regulator Assay (MaCRA) platform to discover additional molecular chaperone drug candidates, including those that may inhibit cancer growth, which will support internal efforts to build an oncology drug franchise or future out-licensing possibilities.
CytRx also announced that Board of Directors’ member Dr. Joseph Rubinfeld has accepted the additional responsibility of Chief Scientific Advisor, and will consult on all aspects of the Company’s oncology development programs while serving as an important interface between the Company and investors, clinicians and industry thought leaders.
Dr. Rubinfeld brings substantial expertise in oncology and drug development through his distinguished career. Dr. Rubinfeld was employed at Bristol-Myers Company International Division as Vice President and Director of Research and Development. While at Bristol-Myers, Dr. Rubinfeld was instrumental in licensing the original anticancer line of products, including Mitomycin and Bleomycin.
New Chemical Synthesis Process: Synergy of Two Catalysts in One FlaskNews
Researchers report the one-step synthesis of a ketone from an aldehyde by the combination of thiazolium N-heterocyclic carbene and palladium/bisphosphine catalysts in one flask. The two catalysts function in a synergistic manner. This study is expected to lead to new synthesis processes of precursor compounds for medications.READ MORE
