Zelda Therapeutics Ltd Enters into a Research Collaboration Agreement with Curtin University
Dec 19 16
Zelda Therapeutics Ltd. announced that it has entered into a research collaboration agreement with Curtin University. This collaboration will test a range of Zelda's formulations and protocols against Curtin's suite of in vitro pancreatic cancer models. This is where the cannabis formulations will be tested against human pancreatic cell cancer lines grown in the laboratory. The aim of this work is to test the impact of Zelda's cannabinoid formulations as stand-alone treatments and in combination with existing chemotherapy drugs such as Abraxane, that is often used to treat pancreatic cancer. There is a growing body of evidence that whole plant cannabinoid extracts can impede cancer growth and potentially render the tumour more responsive to hemotherapeutic agents. This programme will seek to identify whether Zelda formulations can generate anti-cancer activity both alone and in combination with chemotherapeutic agents. The company will be testing Zelda's formulations using these recent discoveries against specific receptors and looking to replicate the positive effects observed in its breast cancer research program. Zelda expects these trials to commence in early 2017, with results to follow thereafter.
