Mentor Capital Signs $6 Million Nanotechnology Cancer LOI
Published: Nov 20, 2012
Marek Malecki, MD, PhD, President of Nanovega, Inc., looks ahead, “We are enthusiastic about the financial support provided by Mentor Capital. With intellectual property protected [9 patents and applications] we look to scale up production of our unique synthetic antibodies.” The nano-bodies are already produced for use by outside researchers and designed for multiple diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
Mentor Capital CEO, Chester Billingsley, adds, “We are especially intrigued by Nanovega’s ability to tag cancer cells or fragments circulating in the blood with ultra-small metal atoms.” The metal nano-tags allow the cancer cells to be separated out using a magnetic field. The separated cancer cells may then be quickly grown and tested outside the body to predetermine the most effective chemotherapy to prescribe.
