Antisoma Telomere Targeting Agent Stops Tumour Growth In Prostate Cancer Model
LONDON, Nov. 4, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Cancer drug developer Antisoma today presents new data showing that one of its telomere targeting agents (TTAs) rapidly blocks prostate tumour growth in a human xenograft model. While in untreated control animals tumours grew to lethal size within 10 days, animals given the TTA experienced a halt in tumour growth at around day 7 and survived to the experiment's end on day 25. These findings extend the range of cancers shown to be susceptible to Antisoma's TTAs and demonstrate that the drugs have profound effects on tumour growth even when used as a sole treatment.
