Hard to Treat Diseases Incorporated - HTDS - Announces: Receipt of Tubercin Toxicity Study and Formation of Scientific Advisory Panel - Wednesday December 3, 8:04 pm ET
DELRAY BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 3, 2003--Hard to Treat Diseases Incorporated (Pink Sheets: HTDS) announces today that the spokesperson for the independent medical group conducting the testing for HTTD (HTDS) has forwarded the formal Testing Results of Tubercin®'s Toxicity Trials to HTTD.
Tubercin of five different concentrations was administered to five groups of mice. A pathologist at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center performed autopsies. The mice were randomized and only the control mouse was known to the pathologist, as stated in the cover letter of the Pathology Report.
The report concludes, "All tissues evaluated, visceral organs and the brain were essentially normal in appearance." "The importance of this report is even better than I expected," stated the spokesperson for the medical group. "As the testing continues and if the results are similar to those of Chemotherapy and or radiation with no harmful side effects, Tubercin has enormous potential for the treatment of cancer and the immune system."
The President and CEO of HTTD, Mr. Colm J. King is in the process of forming a Scientific Advisory Panel with leading Oncologists and Immunologists from prestigious institutions in the U.S. The panel will review the reports and results of Tubercin®'s findings and will report back to Mr. King with the ongoing reports in layman language for the shareholders.
"We are continuing to receive promising results regarding Tubercin® and we're looking forward to additional positive results in the near future," stated Mr. King. "These tests prove that Tubercin® is non-toxic and is the first step on the way to human clinical trials as well as the first positive breakthrough conducted in the United States with an independent medical group for Tubercin®.
