Qualigen obtains exclusive license to novel cancer drug technology from Advanced Cancer Therapeutics

Dec 18, 2018

0 Message : *Required fields CARLSBAD, Calif., Dec. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Qualigen, Inc., and Advanced Cancer Therapeutics, LLC (ACT) today announced that Qualigen has licensed certain ACT patents, intellectual property and know-how associated with the antiproliferative activity of G-rich oligonucleotides ACT-GRO-777 (also known as AS1411) and methods of using these to bind to nucleolin, a protein that is present on the surface of tumor cells. AS1411 is a novel aptamer-based anticancer technology and a key component of Qualigen's anti-nucleolin agent-conjugated nanoparticle drug (AS1411-GNP) that can be used to treat virtually any type of cancer. The AS1411 aptamer has been tested as a drug in over 100 patients and is well tolerated with no evidence of severe side effects, with at least 7 patients having long-lasting clinical responses, where their cancers either disappeared or shrank substantially. Under this License Agreement, Qualigen will obtain the exclusive rights to develop and commercialize ACT-GRO-777/AS1411 and related compounds. In return, ACT will receive potential equity in Qualigen, along with cash payments on the achievement of certain milestones and royalties on future drug sales. "We are delighted to add ACT-GRO-777/AS1411 to our portfolio of anticancer drug technologies. This is a unique opportunity to continue development of a compound that has already undergone extensive preclinical characterization and shown promise in prior clinical studies. We believe that Qualigen's new AS1411-GNP formulation will lead to a significant improvement in potency and absorption in humans, enabling the drug to fulfill the promise seen in the earlier studies," noted Michael S. Poirier, Chairman, CEO and President of Qualigen. "We are excited to work with Qualigen on the product development of our aptamer-based drug to fight cancer," said Randall Riggs, Board Member of ACT. About Qualigen, Inc. Qualigen, Inc. is a medical device company focused on the development, production and commercialization of innovative medical technologies, including its flagship FastPack® point-of-care immunoassay system and novel therapeutic technologies for treatment of cancers and infectious diseases.

Welichem Biotech

Welichem Biotech Inc. ("Welichem", TSX-V: WBI) is engaged in the discovery and development of small molecule therapeutics. Using its Symbiochem technology platform, the Company has developed a robust pipeline of patent-protected compounds that target autoimmune/inflammatory diseases and cancers. Welichem's lead drug candidate, WBI-1001, targets autoimmune/inflammatory skin disorders, such as psoriasis and eczema. A phase I clinical trial of WBI-1001, done in Montreal, in patients with psoriasis has shown a very good safety profile and promising efficacy. As well, the application of WBI-1001 cream against atopic dermatitis (a type of eczema) in a phase IIa clinical trial also has been completed in Canada, with the final report pending in the third quarter of 2008. Welichem plans to all the necessary Phase II Clinical Trials against psoriasis and eczema in the near future. In the company's pipeline, WBI-1001 related compounds are being evaluated also for their therapeutic potential against other autoimmune diseases such as, inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Welichem's other lead drug candidate, WBI-2100, selectively targets certain types of hard-to-treat cancerous tumours. This is achieved in part through inhibition of angiogenesis and metastasis. Animal tests have shown that WBI-2100 is effective as a monotherapy and also in increasing the effectiveness of several commonly used chemotherapeutic products. The uniqueness of this small molecule cancer chemotherapeutic is that in pre-clinical studies it increases the number of neutrophils in the peripheral blood. The boosting of neutrophils in animal studies in the presence of the cancer therapeutic, cyclophosphamide, supports its potential therapeutic application for chemotherapy induced neutropenia. With its proven Symbiochem; technology platform, Welichem will advance its pipeline of drug candidates at a rate and time commensurate with resources and target need, and is in a strong position to contribute effectively to productive drug discovery and development partnerships.
