SANTE FE, N.M., March 28, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- CytoDyn, Inc. (OTCBB:CYDY), best known for Cytolin(r), a targeted immune therapy for treating HIV/AIDS, has announced plans to develop a nonsynthetic antineoplastic agent under the proposed tradename Formaxycin(tm).

A classic example is provided by the Vinca alkaloids, which are obtained from the Madagascar periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus). These drugs include vinblastine and vincristine. Both have been used for many years to treat Hodgkin's and other lymphomas, and both are marketed by Eli Lilly, which has other such agents in its pipeline despite the industry's recent emphasis on immunologically based cancer therapies.
