Indian Scientists Uncover New Therapeutic Agent to Battle Most cancers

The examine was collectively carried out by a crew comprising TIFR’s Malay Patra, Manikandan M., SushantaChhatar, ShubhankarGadre, ARI’s Chinmay Patra and Gourav Chakraborty, and IIT-Hyderabad’s Naushad Ahmed.

Malay Patra advised IANS stated that the brand new therapeutic agent, ‘Ruthenium-Ferrocene Bimetallic’, has the potential to curb major tumor progress via antiproliferation (use for inhibiting cell progress) and checking metastasis (progress) via antiangiogenesis, or ‘killing two birds with one stone’.

Patra, who’s the Principal Investigator, Medicinal Chemistry and Cell Biology Laboratory on the TIFR’s Division of Chemical Sciences, stated that the brand new agent restricts new blood vessel growth and will help deal with most cancers instances that show proof against platinum medicine used for treating the illness.


Thus far, he stated that in depth organic investigations have been undertaken in mobile fashions and on zebrafish, and the crew is now planning to experiment the anti-cancer properties and toxicity of the brand new agent in mammals like mice.

The crew’s analysis has been revealed within the ACS journal, displaying the potential therapeutic implications of the therapeutic brokers to handle platinum-resistant cancers, Patra stated.
