RedChip Issues Research Profile on AV Therapeutics

Feb. 23, 2015 7:30 am

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RedChip Companies, Inc., today announced it has issued a research profile on AV Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB:AVTH), a developer of cancer therapeutics and vaccines.

Highlights of the report include:

Capridine-β uniquely exhibits prostate cancer (PCa) specificity, distinguishing it from currently available prostate cancer treatments. In preclinical studies, Capridine has shown an ability to specifically target prostate cancer cells, allowing it to home in and attack prostate cancer at the source.

Capridine-β showed a pronounced anti-tumor effect in DU-145 (prostate cancer cell line with moderate metastatic potential) cells. The graph below demonstrates the effects of varying doses of Capridine-β at different time intervals. As demonstrated, the percentage of cancer cells that survive decreases significantly as the time variable increases while there is a plateau effect dependent on the dose administered. This indicates that a low amount of the drug leads to high efficacy.

Low bone marrow toxicity improves odds of success, and could make it more amenable for various stages of prostate cancer. In preclinical studies, Capridine-β has shown very low bone marrow toxicities. This is crucial for a few reasons. This is another indicator that Capridine-β is a very targeted therapy, as seen by its strong specificity for PCa cells. Additionally, this indicates that the therapy is safer than other agents currently being used on the market. We believe that this could make Capridine-β eligible for use in multiple stages of prostate cancer care (stages 2-4) either as a standalone therapy or in conjunction with other treatments (likely in earlier stages; this could also help prevent resistance to other treatments).

Successful completion of GMP synthesis of Capridine-β; expected to commence phase I clinical trials in 1Q16. AVTH recently completed GMP synthesis of Capridine-β, with the product showing 99.8% purity and great conformity. This GMP product was used to create a limited toxicity profile, which is currently being analyzed by AVTH.

AVTH is expected to begin phase I clinical trials in 2015, following the completion of preclinical studies and an IND application. Following completion of the toxicology profile, AVTH estimates needing $750,000 to enter phase I clinical trials, along with an additional $1.5 million for phase I/II trials.
