Dr. Smith will discuss NanoSmart Pharmaceuticals' novel drug-delivery platform utilizing a human-derived antinuclear antibody that targets areas of necrosis present in all solid tumors. The presentation will include current status and planned development milestones, while explaining the benefits of reformulating existing drugs using NanoSmart's tumor targeting platform.
"There is a need for new and more-effective therapeutic products across all types of cancers; but particularly for those rare cancers that are often overlooked and/or underserved," said Dr. Smith. "We are pleased with the progress we are making in developing our pipeline and the success of our initial preclinical studies.
