MONTREAL, April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Sunshine Biopharma, Inc. (OTCBB Ticker Symbol: SBFM) a development stage pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of drugs for the treatment of various forms of cancer, today announced that they will be presenting scientific data at the American Association for Cancer Research Meeting April 2-6, 2011 in Orlando Florida.
The DNA repair enzyme Topoisomerase II has been recognized in the oncology field as a clinically important therapeutic target for a variety of cancers. Inhibition of Topoisomerase II activity is essential in the fight against aggressive types of cancer, including multi-resistant breast cancer.
