Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. And IGDRASOL Announce Presentation On Non-Biologic Nanoparticle Paclitaxel (NBN-Pac) Formulations For The Treatment Of Solid Tumors At The Nanomedicine 2013 Meeting In Barcelona, Spain

"We intend to leverage our comprehensive domain knowledge of paclitaxel nanoparticle formulations to build a franchise of next generation paclitaxel nanomedicines.  I am convinced that our team who played a key role in the development and success of Abraxane® will be able to do it here again," said Vuong Trieu Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of IGDRASOL.

Also, the acquisition of TOCOSOL® paclitaxel allows IGDRASOL to compare and contrast stable paclitaxel nanoparticles (TOCOSOL® paclitaxel) versus plasma-unstable paclitaxel nanoparticles (Abraxane® and Genexol-PM®).  Data mining of these large databases have generated exciting insights into the field of nanomedicine. 

Some of the findings are being presented at Nanomedicine 2013, April 11 th -12 th, Barcelona, Spain.  The presentation is entitled: "Non-biologic Nanoparticle Paclitaxel for the Treatment of Cancer" authored by: Vuong Trieu, Catherine Cheng, Larn Hwang, Chao Hsiao, and Kouros Motamed
