HemoShear Names Vincent E. Aurentz as President
Jun 11 15
HemoShear announced that Vincent E. Aurentz, Chief Business Officer, has been named President of HemoShear. Mr. Aurentz will be responsible for leading HemoShear's scientific and business development strategies, as well as public relations and marketing, in addition to his existing business development responsibilities. He will continue to report directly to CEO and Chairman Jim Powers, and will also join HemoShear's Board of Managers. Mr. Aurentz's appointment will utilize his more than 25 years of experience in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry as an entrepreneur and pharmaceutical R&D executive.

He was also recently Executive Vice President at Quintiles.
HemoShear Completes First Phase of Development of Novel Cancer Drug Discovery Platform
Oct 9 14
HemoShear announced that it has completed the first phase of development of a novel cancer drug discovery platform that replicates human tumor biology and responds to clinically-relevant drug concentrations. Funded by a contract with the NCI, HemoShear is developing a series of tumor models that recreate a wide variety of cancers for discovery of new drugs. Using their new platform, HemoShear was able to successfully replicate human therapeutic response to Cisplatin, a drug approved to treat non-small cell lung carcinomoa, at a therapeutically-relevant concentration. Similarly, HemoShear evaluated two other drugs currently in clinical studies and confirmed a therapeutic response. When evaluated in traditional cell culture systems and mouse studies, the same dose of Cisplatin does not show a response. HemoShear's findings reinforce the need to test cancer drug candidates under more human-relevant tumor conditions. HemoShear's translational tissue systems apply physiological blood flow characteristics to human tissue to restore its in vivo biology, using material from HemoShear's biorepository and interpreting data with cutting edge computational analytics. In phase I of the NCI-funded program, HemoShear demonstrated that NSCLC tumor structure, biology, and molecular signaling pathways are restored in the HemoShear platform.
