HealthDay - WEDNESDAY, Sept. 3 (HealthDay News) - A little-used cancer drug called bryostatin can repair brain tissue if it's administered within 24 hours after a stroke, according to U.S.
Bryostatin blocks a downstream effector of TORC., called protein kinase C. Plimack and colleagues designed the phase I trial to test the safety of the bryostatin-temsirolimus combination.
Early data suggests that a combination of temsirolimus and bryostatin may be active in patients with rare forms of renal cell cancer, which are less likely to respond to other targeted therapies.
Haygood, a scientist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography for 18 years before coming to OHSU, has worked on the microbiology of symbioses - the interaction between different biological species - for three decades and played a major role proving that bryostatin, an anti-cancer agent, is made by bacterial symbionts living in a marine animal.
