TechConnect Innovation Program

Low Dose Anticancer Nano Drug (Nano Carbon)//Lung Cancer Application

Gyeongsang National University, California, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Suggested drug described at least ten-times reduction of anticancer drug amount using nanoparticles and thus demonstrated the evidence of diminishing the side effect comes by chemotherapy. This drug can be specific to lung and possibly effective to other malignant tumors. We are heading to enter clinical stages in near future.

Primary Application Area: Pharmaceuticals & Personal Care

Technology Development Status: Ready to Market

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 5

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: This drug can reduce the amount of conventional anticancer drugs about 90-95%. Naturally, minimal dose of anti-cancer drugs will lessen the various side effects of drug during chemotherapy.
