About PeptiMed

PeptiMed has invented a proprietary siRNA therapeutic drug that targets the EVI1 gene, called siEVI1, for treatment of advanced breast, prostate, lung, colon, ovarian, and skin cancer. The drug may be used initially as a second-line therapy, and advanced to first-line therapy once proven effective as a stand-alone treatment.

PeptiMed Signs Agreement with the National Cancer Institute to Assess Safety of HelpTM Drug Delivery Nanoparticle Formulations

Jun 23, 2014

AAPS PharmSciTech: Dendrimer, Liposomes, Carbon Nanotubes and PLGA Nanoparticles: One Platform Assessment of Drug Delivery Potential The nanocomplex materials to be provided by PeptiMed will harbor motifs that bind to cell adhesion molecules on the surface of cancer cells and deliver an siRNA payload that silences the oncogene, EVI1. Initially, the NCL will assess the physical and chemical properties of the nanocomplexes followed by their purity and sterility in cell culture models. A second phase of testing for various modes of toxicity may be performed in animal models. “We are profoundly pleased to work with the NCL to further our understanding of PeptiMed nanomaterials,” stated Scott Schneider, CEO and co-founder of PeptiMed. “We are indeed fortunate to be able to rely on the expertise of the professionals at the NCL to get one step closer to the clinic.” PeptiMed co-founder Dr. Jeremy Heidel added, “The NCL has a strong track record in assisting biotech companies [as well as government and academic institutions] with evaluation and development of novel nanoparticle drug delivery systems. The comprehensive battery of measurements to be performed at the NCL will provide data and analytical methods that will help advance our nanoparticle technology toward the clinic.” ABOUT PEPTIMED The mission of PeptiMed is to discover and provide nucleotide-based therapies and delivery systems for nucleotide-based drugs with unprecedented potency in ameliorating late-stage cancer while avoiding debilitating side effects, thereby improving prognosis and quality of life for each patient. PeptiMed has patented the hELPTM nanoparticle delivery system for nucleotides. PeptiMed plans to begin first-in-human studies to determine maximum tolerated and efficacious doses of the EVIRNATM/hELPTM nanocomplex by the end of FY2015. This press release contains positive forward-looking statements concerning the therapeutic value of PeptiMed’s EVIRNATM/hELPTM nanocomplex.
