Access Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ACCP.OB) Presenting Posters at the Innovations in Cancer Prevention and Research Conference

|Includes: Access Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ACCP-OLD)

Access Pharmaceuticals, Inc. will be displaying posters on its novel developments in drug delivery platforms for cancer therapy this week at the Innovations in Cancer Prevention and Research Conference at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, TX. The Inaugural Conference is being held November 17-19, 2010 and is hosted by the rapidly-growing Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas whose mission is to “create and support infrastructure in Texas that accelerates the movement of new cancer drugs, diagnostics, and therapies from the laboratory to the patient.”

Access Pharmaceuticals will be presenting two posters at the event. Poster “Vitamin B-12 Nanoparticles for the Targeted Delivery of RNAi Therapeutics” will showcase Access’ CobaCyte (formerly called “Cobalamin”) for RNAi. This oral drug delivery innovation is showing strong promise because of its ability to allow drug molecules that are attached to a B12 analog to be absorbed through the walls of the intestine, including large molecules such as insulin and many hormones, which may prove to be very beneficial in cancer therapy.

The second poster, titled, “Preclinical and Clinical Studies of ProLindac: A Novel Polymer Prodrug of DACH Platinum”, summarizes the advantages of ProLindac, the Company’s second generation DACH Platinum. ProLindac has recently been in industry news as Access Pharmaceuticals has begun an open-label, Phase II clinical study of ProLindac in combination with paclitaxel in platinum-sensitive ovarian cancer patients. Other newly compiled safety and efficacy data on ProLindac from its Phase II monotherapy clinical study of ProLindac™ in late-stage, heavily pretreated ovarian cancer patients has shown very promising results in disease stabilization and Ca-125 reduction.
