TARIS BioMedical Enters Research Collaboration with AstraZeneca for Improved Bladder Cancer Treatments
Oct 16 13
TARIS Biomedical announced that it has entered into a research collaboration with AstraZeneca to evaluate novel treatments for bladder cancer. Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will work together to evaluate multiple novel cancer therapeutics by employing the TARIS(R) proprietary bladder delivery platform in combination with targeted cancer therapeutics from AstraZeneca. The TARIS(R) delivery platform is a soft, flexible system deployed into and retrieved from the bladder using standard urological office procedures. It is designed to provide continuous local delivery to the bladder for days to weeks, depending on the therapeutic application. Furthermore, AstraZeneca has an exclusive option to take a license to the products resulting from the collaboration. This could combine the ability to target both the right tissue - the tumour, with the right genetically targeted therapy and therefore represent a step change in the treatment of this disease.
