Cancer and viral infection treatments.

ArtiVeda/ArtiShield – a natural derivative from the plant Artemisia – Artemisinin has shown to be highly potent at inhibiting the ability of the COVID-19 causing virus to multiply while also having an excellent safety index. Artemisinin derivatives are used to treat malaria. More Information.

OT-101 – an antisense against TGF-β2 – for the treatment of solid tumors with focus on brain cancer in adult and DIPG in children. RPD for pediatric DIPG granted by US FDA. OT-101, also referred to Trabedersen, is a novel antisense oligodeoxynucleotide (ODN) developed by Oncotelic for the treatment of patients with pancreatic carcinoma, malignant melanoma, colorectal carcinoma, high-grade glioma (HGG), and other transforming growth factor beta 2 (TGF-β2) overexpressing malignancies (e.g., prostate carcinoma, renal cell carcinoma, etc.).

Trabedersen is a synthetic 18-mer phosphorothioate oligodeoxynucleotide (S-ODN) complementary to the messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) of the human TGF-β2 gene. Cancers overexpress TGF-β, which suppresses host innate immune response to the cancers. Treatment with OT-101 lifts the TGF-β cloaking effect and allows innate or therapeutic immunity to attack and eliminate the cancers.

We have completed phase 2 for pancreatic cancer and melanoma, and phase 2 in glioblastoma with robust efficacy and safety.

OT-101 – an antisense against TGF-β2 –for the treatment of various viruses, including the SARS and the current COVID-19, on its own and in conjunction with other compounds.

CA4P – a vascular disrupting agent (“VDA”)- in combination with Ipilimumab for the treatment of solid tumors with focus on melanoma in adult and pediatric melanoma. On May 4th, 2020, FDA granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation for CA4P/ Fosbretabulin for the treatment of stage IIB–IV melanoma due to genetic mutations that disproportionately affect pediatric patients as a drug for a “rare pediatric disease.”

Oxi4503 – a second generation VDA- for the treatment of liquid tumors with focus on childhood leukemia. US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted our request and designate OXi4503 (combretastatin A1-diphosphate; CA1P) for treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) due to genetic mutations that disproportionately affect pediatric patients as a drug for a “rare pediatric disease”, as defined in section 529(a)(3) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360ff(a)(3)).
