    Biotech/Pharma Stock News; BioSante Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: BPAX) Sells Oncolytic Virus Technology to Cold Genesys, Inc.
    LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. - November 17, 2010 (Investorideas.com newswire) BioSante Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: BPAX) today announced it sold to Cold Genesys, Inc. exclusive, worldwide rights to develop and commercialize its oncolytic virus technology. The technology includes CG0070, a replication-competent adenovirus that has completed a Phase I clinical trial for treatment of superficial bladder cancer. In exchange for the technology, BioSante received a 19.9 percent ownership position in Cold Genesys and a $95,000 upfront cash payment and is eligible to receive future milestone and royalty payments.
     
     Oncolytic (cancer cell killing) virus therapy is novel therapy that utilizes adenoviruses, a cause of the common cold, which are engineered to selectively replicate in targeted cancer cells, thereby killing these cells while leaving healthy cells largely unharmed. The virus is designed to replicate in cancer cells producing large amounts of oncolytic virus until the cancer cell can no longer contain the virus and bursts. The tumor cell is destroyed and the newly created oncolytic virus spreads to neighboring cancer cells to continue the cycle of viral replication and tumor cell destruction.
     
    Stephen M. Simes, president and CEO of BioSante, said, "This is an important step in maximizing the value of technologies acquired late last year. This transaction allows us to transfer our oncolytic virus technology to a company with the expertise and ability to move it along the development path. By maintaining an ownership position in Cold Genesys, Inc. as well as the potential for future milestone and royalty payments, we have maintained important 'upside' in this exciting technology."
     
     
    Advanced Cell Technology Inc. (OTCBB: ACTC) Recent News:
    Advanced Cell Technology Receives FDA Clearance for the First Clinical Trial Using Embryonic Stem Cells to Treat Macular Degeneration
    “Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. announced today that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the Company’s Investigational New Drug (NYSE:IND) application to immediately initiate a Phase I/II multicenter clinical trial using retinal cells derived from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) to treat patients with Stargardt’s Macular Dystrophy (SMD), one of the most common forms of juvenile macular degeneration in the world. The decision removes the clinical hold that the FDA had placed on the trial.
     
    Stargardt’s Macular Dystrophy causes progressive vision loss, usually starting in children between 10 to 20 years of age. Eventually, blindness results from photoreceptor loss associated with degeneration in the pigmented layer of the retina, called the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). . “There is currently no treatment for Stargardt’s disease,” said Dr. Robert Lanza, ACT’s Chief Scientific Officer. “Using stem cells, we can generate a virtually unlimited supply of healthy RPE cells, which are the first cells to die off in SMD and other forms of macular degeneration. We’ve tested these cells in animal models of eye disease. In rats, we’ve seen 100% improvement in visual performance over untreated animals without any adverse effects. Our studies showed that the cells were capable of extensive rescue of photoreceptors in animals that otherwise would have gone blind. Near-normal function was also achieved in a mouse model of Stargardt’s disease. We hope to see a similar benefit in patients with various forms of macular degeneration.”
