Oncohist™ exhibits the same properties as the body's own histone H1.3 molecules and has consequently low immunogenicity and antigenicity. Extensive data have shown that Oncohist molecules have the ability to destabilize selectively the tumor cell membrane which results in cell death. The selective attack of the membrane of tumor cells is due to the ability of Oncohist™ molecules to recognize the difference in membrane structure between tumor cells and their healthy counterparts. We believe that Oncohist™ has superior advantages over conventional cancer therapeutics, including high selectivity, low inherent toxicity, lack of induction of resistance and low immunogenicity.
A pilot clinical study (phase I/II) with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) patients has been performed at the Saarland University Hospital at Homburg/Saar, Germany. The data showed that Oncohist™ is safe and well tolerated by patients while the first encouraging signs of clinical effect included three partial remissions, increase of thrombocytes and normalization of leukocytes as well as stabilization for several months in two patients.
Oncohist™ has been granted orphan drug status for Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) by both the FDA and EMA and additional orphan drug status for Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) in Europe by the EMA.
