Duquesne University Enters Licensing Deal for Cancer Treatment Drugs

Nearly 50 patents, developed quietly in the labs of Duquesne University, could hold big potential for the treatment of cancer. Working with Flag Therapeutics Inc., the university has entered into a licensing agreement for two novel classes of duel-acting, water-soluble drugs developed by Duquesne professor Aleem Gangjee for the treatment of cancer. Representing the large licensing deal in Duquesne's history, the agreement provides Flag with the exclusive worldwide rights for the two families of patents, extending beyond 2035. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Preclinical studies suggest that both compounds hold the potential to treat multiple types of cancer, including some ovarian, breast, lung, brain and pancreatic cancer. The drugs have not been tested on humans, which will take significant investment.
