About TNI BioTech, Inc.
TNI BioTech, Inc., is a biotech company working to combat fatal diseases through the activation and mobilization of the body's immune system using our patented immunotherapy. Our products and immunotherapy technologies are designed to harness the power of the immune system to improve the treatment of cancer, infections such as HIV/AIDS, chronic inflammatory diseases, and autoimmune diseases.
Our proprietary technology, therapies and patents, will be used to treat a wide range of cancers. Our most advanced clinical programs involve immunotherapy that works by isolating a patient's lymphocytes and then incubating them together with Methionine Enkephalin (MENK) in an enriching external incubation system. After incubation the patient's lymphocytes are re-infused back into the patient where they combat and destroy tumor cells.
However, even though Management considers any condition that results in altered-immune response a target for investigation, the Company will most likely pursue additional investigations for MENK as a valuable candidate in the treatment of the following:
- Autoimmune states such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis;
- As an adjunct to antibiotics in the treatment of infectious diseases;
- In cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation treatments or surgery;
- Patients with AIDS, in combination with retroviral drug therapy; and
- In wound healing or herpes viral infections.
