ProtoKinetix Receives Remarkable Results from Study Using Synthetic AFGP on Skin Cells
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 25, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Dr. John Todd, president and CEO of ProtoKinetix, Inc. (OTCBB:PKTX) announces today the results of the in-vitro effect of their synthetic antifreeze glycoprotein (AFGP) on embryonic human fibroblast skin cells. Prior work has confirmed that our synthetic AFGP is able to preserve human kidney cells, red blood cells, and platelets as well as rat cardiac cells and tissue. Now, using 5 mgm per ml of monomeric AFGP, the results are very positive, in that the human fibroblast skin cells clearly show a better survivability at all temperatures from 22 degrees C to minus 3 degrees C. At 3 degrees C after 30 hours, 64 percent of the cells in the AFGP solution were alive versus 15 percent of the cells in the control solution (with no AFGP). These results are a very strong indication that ProtoKinetix's AFGP can be used as an additive to help preserve skin cells.
