Panther Biotechnology, Inc. Enters into License Agreement with Northwestern University

Panther Biotechnology Inc. has entered into an exclusive global license agreement with Northwestern University. Under the terms of the agreement, Panther has licensed from Northwestern University the rights to develop and commercialize new technologies to enhance efficacy and decrease toxic side effects of a novel category of anti-cancer drugs. The licensed compounds, called Numonafides, are optimized derivatives of Amonafide, and are engineered to avoid acetylation and eliminate a toxic metabolite. Numonafides have demonstrated broad in vitro activity in blood, cervical, colon, gastric, liver, lung and skin cancers. Laboratory results suggest that the lead compound has a broad spectrum of anti-tumor activities with minimal toxicity and minimal chances of developing drug resistance.
