This project lays the foundation for a new way to treat all cancers. If successful, the methods could be used for any targets.
Hewlett, NY 9/26/2021 - The Musella Foundation is pleased to announce that we have awarded a brain tumor research grant to Dr. Wafa Hassen at The University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center for the project: "Exosomes for Targeting c-Myc in Glioblastoma Multiforme".
This project will try to use physiological nanoparticles called exosomes to deliver RNA interference (RNAi) molecules to the tumor. If successful, this will lead to a phase 1 trial in human Glioblastoma.
They are also working on the same concept for pancreatic cancer, which also overexpress c-Myc.
We will be watching this closely as it has the potential to be a major breakthrough for many types of cancer.
