HemoShear, LLC Key Developments
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.

HemoShear, LLC Enters into R&D Collaboration with Medivir AB
Apr 23 14
HemoShear, LLC announced research collaboration with Medivir AB. The collaboration will explore the application of HemoShear's platform in an undisclosed area of strategic interest. In this initial phase of the collaboration, HemoShear will characterize biological mechanisms and the effects of drug candidates on liver tissue using the Company's first-in-class human liver system. The HemoShear human liver system accurately replicates in vivo physiological conditions, enabling a more precise and definitive assessment of targets and drug candidates, drug-induced changes in biology and pharmacological responses. The collaboration with Medivir will also leverage and contribute to the set of drug exposure data HemoShear is creating as part of an ongoing program funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), a division of NIH.
