About TNI BioTech, Inc.
TNI BioTech, Inc. is a biotech company working to combat chronic, life-threatening diseases through the activation and modulation of the body's immune system using our patented immunotherapy. Our products and immunotherapy technologies are designed to harness the power of the immune system to improve the treatment of cancer, infections such as HIV/AIDS, chronic inflammatory diseases, and autoimmune diseases.
Our proprietary technology, therapies and patents include the treatment of a wide range of cancers. Our most advanced clinical program involves immunotherapy with met-enkephalin ("MENK") and/or opioid growth factor ("OGF"), which have been shown to stimulate the immune system even in patients with advanced cancer. Even though management considers any condition that results in altered-immune response a target for investigation, the company will most likely pursue additional investigations for low dose naltrexone and/or MENK as valuable candidates in the treatment of the following: autoimmune states such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis; as an adjunct in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation treatments or surgery; and as an adjunct to antibiotics in the treatment of a variety of infectious diseases, including patients with AIDS, in combination with retroviral drug therapy.
