Cellceutix Corp., an emerging bio-pharmaceutical company, is in the early stages of receiving an influx of media attention and widespread notoriety within the pharmaceutical industry due to the promising results shown during the early development of a compound for the treatment of autism, KM-391, and the approaching Phase 1 clinical trials of Kevetrin™, the company’s compound for the treatment of drug-resistant cancers. In addition to these two, Cellceutix currently manages a portfolio of six other promising compounds.
KM-391, a 100% novel compound, is revolutionary in that it addresses the core issues of autism, unlike the pharmaceuticals presently on the market which merely treat the symptoms that result from autism. Preliminary testing of KM-391 revealed that test animals showed a significant increase in serotonin uptake compared to controls, with no apparent side-effects during long-term administration. Cellceutix is rapidly developing KM-391 in response to the public outcries received by the company since the results of early testing had been made publicly available.
Kevetrin, Cellceutix’s flagship product, is nearing Phase 1 clinical trials on humans with FDA regulated pre-clinical testing completed and the data being properly compiled for the IND application. While most cancer treatments today are derivatives of other compounds, Kevetrin is completely unique. Multidrug resistance, the principal mechanism by which strains of cancer develop resistance to chemotherapy drugs, is a major factor in the failure of many forms of chemotherapy today and represents a huge need for novel cancer treatments.
Kevetrin has been extensively studied in animal models of lung, breast, and colon cancers, targeting carcinoma strains that have proven resistant to standard therapies available on the market today with the results showing greater tumor growth delay than present therapies and strong efficacy in mouse models with increasing dosages. A successful drug for the treatment of drug-resistant cancers is purported to generate billions of dollars in annual revenues.
The Company has procured leading figures in the health and science arenas to lead its development efforts. The officers and advisors of Cellceutix include pioneers in the fields of cancer and genetics, as well as those who have been integral to mergers, acquisitions and the generation of exorbitant revenues through ground breaking therapies while holding high-level executive and research positions at industry giants such as Pfizer and Eli Lilly. Holding over a century of highly relevant experience in the pharmaceuticals industry, the team has been assembled with the specific goal of duplicating these past successes while revolutionizing much needed treatments for today’s most challenging diseases.
