NanoCure Changes Name to Avidimer Therapeutics

Abstract:
James R. Baker, Jr., M.D., Avidimer's chairman and chief scientific officer, commented, "The name Avidimer Therapeutics refers to our focus on cell-specific targeting of therapeutics and diagnostics through the use of novel branch-like polymers known as dendrimers, which avidly target diseased cells and have the potential to diagnose and treat cancer and other diseases more effectively and completely than current diagnostics and therapeutics. Their small size (less than 5nm) enables them to escape the blood stream through vascular pores, selectively target and treat tumor cells, and be cleared rapidly through the kidney. Preclinical studies have demonstrated the impressive ability of dendrimers to target diseased cells in the body."
