Biotech News Alert: GenSpera (OTCQB:GNSZ) Announces US Patent for Methods and Compositions for the Detection, Imaging and Treatment of Cancer

Biotech News Alert: GenSpera (OTCQB:GNSZ) Announces US Patent for Methods and Compositions for the Detection, Imaging and Treatment of Cancer

SAN ANTONIO - July 30, 2014 (Investorideas.com Biotech Newswire) GenSpera, Inc. (OTCQB:GNSZ), a leader in developing prodrug therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, announces the issuance of a United States patent entitled "Methods and compositions for the detection of cancer". The patent US 8,772,226 B2 was issued July 8, 2014.

The patent contains composition claims for thapsigargin-containing prodrugs that can be radiolabelled and then activated by the enzymes Prostate Specific Membrane Antigen (PSMA), Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) or Human Glandular Kallikrein 2 (hK2). The patent also claims methods of using such radiolabelled prodrugs for the detection, imaging and treatment of cancers in humans.

The co-inventors on the patent include Drs. Samuel Denmeade, John Isaacs and Soren Brogger Christensen who are all members of GenSpera's Scientific Advisory Board.

"As we evaluate G-202 further in the liver cancer and glioblastoma Phase II clinical trials it is clear that the technology described in this patent, when fully developed, would greatly aid in the selection of patients most likely to benefit from G-202 treatment," said Craig Dionne, PhD, GenSpera's CEO. "The issuance of this patent also exemplifies the breadth and diversity of GenSpera's intellectual property portfolio."

About GenSpera
GenSpera's technology platform combines a powerful, plant-derived cytotoxin (thapsigargin) with a prodrug delivery system that provides for the targeted release of drug candidates within a tumor. Unlike typical chemotherapeutic agents, thapsigargin results in cell death irrespective of the rate of cell division, which may provide an effective approach to kill both fast- and slow-growing cancers. GenSpera's lead drug candidate, G-202, is activated by the enzyme PSMA, which is found at high levels in the vasculature of liver and glioblastoma cancers and in the vasculature of almost all other solid tumors. G-202 is therefore expected to have potential efficacy in a wide variety of tumor types.

G-202 Phase II clinical trials are underway in both hepatocellular carcinoma and glioblastoma patients.

SAN DIEGO - June 25, 2014 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), the pioneer in creating medical devices that target unmet therapeutic needs in infectious disease and cancer, announced today that the presentation made by Company Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce at The Wall Street Analyst Forum on June 19th, is now available at www.aethlonmedical.com.

Once the page has been launched, click on the "listen to the webcast" icon.

Investorideas.com Newswire The presentation covered the following topics:
  • A status report on the first FDA approved study of Hemopurifier therapy in the United States, including Aethlon's clinical progression strategy to advance infectious disease and oncology treatment indications.
  • A review of clinical safety data and efficacy observations resulting from Hemopurifier administration to HIV and Hepatitis c (HCV) infected individuals.
  • The results of government and non-government collaborative testing programs against category "A" bioterror and pandemic threats, including pandemic influenza, dengue, ebola, pox viruses, and other viral pathogens that remain untreatable with drug or vaccine therapies.
  • The discovery that the Aethlon Hemopurifier captures tumor-secreted exosomes underlying a broad-spectrum of cancer indications and the resulting patent protection already issued to protect Aethlon's cancer treatment endeavors.
  • A review of a National Cancer Institute (NCI) sponsored publication that references Aethlon Medical as the first organization with a therapeutic candidate to address tumor-secreted exosomes.
  • A review of recent landmark discoveries that tumor-secreted exosomes suppress the immune system of cancer patients, seed the creation and spread of metastasis, promote angiogenesis, and transport PD-1, PDL-1, VEGF, CTLA-4, EGRF and other primary cancer therapeutic targets of the biopharmaceutical industry.
  • The central role of the Aethlon Hemopurifier in the rapidly emerging immuno-oncology industry, which analysts expect to grow to $35 billion per year in the near future.

Breaking Biotech News: GenSpera (OTCQB:GNSZ) Releases 2014 BIO International Presentation and HCC Clinical Trial Update for G-202

SAN ANTONIO - June 24, 2014 (Investorideas.com Biotech Newswire) GenSpera, Inc. (OTCQB:GNSZ), a leader in developing prodrug therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, releases the 2014 BIO International corporate presentation. Chairman and CEO, Craig Dionne, PhD, presented the company overview and clinical trial updates for G-202 at the 2014 BIO International Convention, today, Tuesday, June 24th, at 11:15 PDT, in San Diego, CA.

Dr. Dionne presented interim results from the Phase Ib and ongoing Phase II study in hepatocellular (HCC) patients who had previously progressed on, or who were intolerant of, sorafenib. Historically, this patient population has a median time to progression of only two months when they enter subsequent clinical trials. Impressively, 80% of patients treated with G-202 had stable disease (no tumor growth) at two months and 50% of patients exhibited stable disease at 4 months on study.
Commenting on the Phase I and II data of G-202 in HCC Patients, Dr. Dionne stated, "Our lead candidate, G-202, is demonstrating better than expected clinical results and safety profile. These data are strongly encouraging and highly suggestive of clinical activity in this very challenging patient population. Relative to other drugs currently in advanced trials in HCC patients, G-202 appears to exhibit a better tolerated side effect profile and a larger subset of patients who experience disease stabilization of at least six months. Remarkably, one patient remains on treatment 22 months after initiation of treatment and another patient experienced complete remission of bone pain due to a metastatic lesion to the spinal column. As a result of these data, we are designing a randomized study as the next step toward United States Food and Drug Administration approval of G-202."

Breaking Biotech News: GenSpera, Inc. (OTCQB:GNSZ) Releases Updated Corporate Video: "GenSpera has targeted its active ingredient thapsigargin to kill only the cells we select: cancer"

SAN ANTONIO - June 23, 2014 (Investorideas.com Biotech Newswire) GenSpera, Inc. (OTCQB:GNSZ), a leader in developing prodrug therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, releases the updated corporate video explaining its lead drug candidate, G-202.

The video explains, "The thapsigargin plant, a weed that grows abundantly in the Mediterranean, kills by disruption of the calcium balance in cells, all cells. Now, Genspera has targeted its active ingredient thapsigargin, to kill only the cells we select: cancer."
Chairman and CEO, Craig Dionne, PhD. says, "We have taken the powerful toxin thapsigargin and found a way to keep it inactive until it finds the cells it has been programmed to seek. Then it releases its active ingredient and destroys all of the targeted cells."
In the case of GenSpera's first drug, G-202, this target is PSMA, an enzyme which is only found on the walls of the blood vessels that feed cancer tumors, regardless of the type of cancer.
See the Video: http://youtu.be/jULjEul-mBk
Chairman and CEO, Craig Dionne, PhD., will be presenting at the 2014 BIO International Convention on Tuesday, June 24th at 11:15 PDT in San Diego, CA, where he will be providing an update on G-202. The Company's BIO presentation will be available on June 24th to investors.
