Nanobac Pharmaceuticals Announces Sharpened Focus
TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 31, 2006--Nanobac Pharmaceuticals,
Inc. (OTCBB:NNBP) ("Nanobac" or "the Company") today announced a
sharpened focus on developing safe and effective drug therapies for
diseases where calcification, or "calcium deposits", is a dominant
Calcification is a significant feature in most diseases that are
leading causes of death, including heart disease. Calcification is
shown in numerous studies to block circulation, cause inflammation and
cell disruption, and is a possible sign of cancers. More than 20,000
journal papers reference it, but until now it has been hard to treat.
The sharpened focus on drug therapy is based on findings by Nanobac
scientists that certain drugs, when combined, are effective at halting
the calcification process.
Some of these drug combinations have not been tested in animals or
humans. However, the Company has an advantage in that each of these
drugs on its own has an FDA-approved record of being safe, therefore
regulatory hurdles are significantly lower in every national
In announcing this sharpened focus, company Co-Chairman Dr. Benedict
Maniscalco explained that this denotes a major shift so that the
Company can develop what it considers to be a group of major new
The Company will focus on the following priorities over the next 12-18
-- Therapy. The Company is entering into agreements to test its
proprietary drug combinations to treat stone-forming diseases, with a
preliminary focus on prostatitis, which affects millions of men and
currently is largely untreatable. The Company will also conduct tests
with other stone forming diseases such as gallstones and kidney stones.
-- Infection. The gold standard for proving that something is
infectious is Koch's postulates, and the company will validate earlier
findings on Koch's postulates with calcifying nanoparticles in
laboratory animals, including testing whether the infection can be
prevented or treated with a proprietary drug combination.
-- Characterization. The Company has preliminary photographic and
biochemical evidence that calcifying nanoparticles self-replicate in
non-precipitating conditions, suggesting further that they have the
ability to be infectious. The Company has designed an experiment with
NASA to demonstrate this via time-lapse photography, using new
microscopic technology developed in 2005.
-- Thrombosis is the cause of death in most hemodialysis patients. The
Company intends to validate its findings that calcifying nanoparticles
discovered in human blood provoke thrombosis and might be preventable.
-- Diagnostics. The Company believes that its proprietary Elisa
antibody test uniquely recognizes calcifying nanoparticles known as
nanobacteria, and plans to validate this immediately.
"The Company will continue optimizing its proprietary diagnostics, with
a clear focus on developing effective therapies in cooperation with
well-established partners including NASA, Mayo Clinic, Cleveland
Clinic, and numerous other institutions. Once these experiments are
completed, we will have a compelling and well-rounded scientific basis
for the Company to move forward," Dr. Maniscalco concluded.
