Pharmacyte Biotech Inc (OTCMKTS:PMCB) Addresses Unmet Medical Needs Of Patients Suffering From LAPC: 57,600 People In The US Suffers From LAPC In 2020



Pharmacyte Biotech Inc (OTCMKTS:PMCB) is moving ahead with its proposed Phase 2b clinical trial in patients suffering from locally advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer (LAPC). The company will conduct the clinical trial in patients, who no longer see any improvement after the treatment for 4 to 6 months using the first-line therapies. According to a communiqué from the American Cancer Society, the five-year survival rate for patients with LAPC has increased to 10%, an increase of 1%. Certainly, it is good news for patients suffering from LAPC.

Working together to treat LAPC

The entire community comprising pancreatic cancer researchers, volunteers, healthcare professionals, and other advocates are working together to achieve progress in LAPC in 2020. Chief Executive Officer (Pancreatic Action Network) and President of Pharmacyte, Julie Fishman, said he is grateful for the diligent efforts put in by the entire community of professionals and researchers to achieve progress in curing LAPC.

47,050 pancreatic cancer patients to die in 2020

Pancreatic cancer, which is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-associated deaths, ranks 11th in the US among the most diagnosed cancers. According to the estimates, 57,600 people in the US are expected to get diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year. Around 47,050 people suffering from LAPC in the US are expected to die in 2020.

Therefore, the above facts are alarming and need funds and urgent attention on continued research to find a promising therapy. As part of this action, Pharmacyte is gearing to administer its Cell-in-a-Box, a signature live-cell encapsulation technology, together with lower dosages of ifosfamide, an anticancer drug, to patients suffering from LAPC.

At present, patients diagnosed with late-stage pancreatic cancer are treated using first-line chemotherapy such as folfirinox or Abraxane and Gemcitabine. If the patients are not receiving any benefits after administering these medicines, their hopes are fading for any meaningful cure.

Pharmacyte strives to make a change

Pharmacyte is putting in considerable efforts to achieve a breakthrough in treatment for patients suffering from LAPC. The company uses cellular targeted chemotherapy to turn the inoperable tumors into operable and remove them through surgery. However, it is only possible if pancreatic cancer is not spread to other parts of the body.

Pharmacyte said its two batches of the clinical trial product have successfully passed the 7 out of 10 release tests. Kenneth L. Waggoner, the CEO, said the clinical trial products are performing satisfactorily in the release test. The data collected from these tests helps the company to apply for FDA nod for the investigational drug to cure LAPC.
