CytoDyn to Develop Nonsynthetic Cancer Drug
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). In marked contrast to nutraceuticals, nonsynthetic cancer drugs are potent chemotherapeutic agents, even though they must be derived from a plant. 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.

StockInterview.com Uncovers a 20-Year Old Scientific 'Accident' Which May Lead to a Breakthrough Ovarian Cancer Treatment
SARASOTA, Fla., March 28, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- A twenty-year secret has come to light. While working on the development of an imaging technology to study cancer tumors, University of Alberta Professor Emeritus Dr. Antoine Noujaim stumbled across a potentially major breakthrough in the treatment of ovarian cancer patients. In a taped interview, Dr. Noujaim told StockInterview.com, "We sent some of these antibodies to Professor Richard Baum in Germany for imaging of ovarian cancer patients. Dr. Baum phoned back, after some time, and told me, 'The patients I was imaging here had advanced ovarian cancer and some of them seem to have done quite well after we gave them a couple of shots (of the B43.13 antibody, the clinical name for OvaRex(r) MAb) to image the tumor.' I thought he was joking with me."
