New Delhi: Examinations of rats and human tissues have been found to be effective against extremely aggressive plants. They include breast, pancreas, egg-producing, and brain. The compound, known as ERX-41, leaves healthy tissue intact.


It is one of the most promising developments to date — offering the hope of a ‘one-size-fits-all’ pill that was once thought impossible. The results were so encouraging that clinical trials are expected to begin in the next few months.


"We have identified significant risks in many colds and confirmed our findings on a wide range of cancer cells and animal species," said lead author Professor Ratna Vadlamudi, of the University of Texas. "The range of cell lines and xenografts where the compound has been shown to be effective is compelling and shows that it tends to be particularly vulnerable to cancer cells."


Xenografts are human plants that grew on rat models for research purposes. The findings could lead to exciting cancer treatments with a few effective drugs.


Successful research

The staff of Prof. Vadlamudi study breast and ovarian cancer with the aim of forming small molecules that block tumors that are resistant to current therapies. In 2017, they identified a compound called ERX-11 targeting the estrogen receptor (ER) protein that drives most breast cancers. By testing similar chemicals, researchers have shown ERX-41 kills ER-positive and triple-negative breast cancers (TNBCs) in petroleum vessels.


They lack the receptors for the hormones estrogen, progesterone, and epidermal growth factor 2 - and they are very dangerous. The researchers then demonstrated that ERX-41 also attacked a host of human organisms that had grown from several of these cell lines in rat models. It also has a strong resistance to xenografts found in the patient, reducing human tumors that have grown in laboratory rats without affecting normal breast cells or causing any visible toxins.


"The safety profile and the high therapeutic value of this ingredient are very significant and reflect well on clinical translation," said Prof Vadlamudi.


Additional tests found ERX-41 are also effective against pancreas, brain, and ovarian tumors. They are among the most lethal, with few effective drugs. "This is more dangerous than a large treatment window, which has no adverse effects on normal cells or mice," said Prof. Vadlamudi. "Our study includes a targeted strategy for solid tumors involving the breast, brain, pancreatic, and ovarian areas where small, orally available molecules result in the death of tumor cells."


Dallas-based biotech company EtiraRx hopes clinical trials will continue in early 2023.
