Nanobac Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCBB:NNBP) ("Nanobac" or "the Company") announces that scientists at Mayo Clinic, working under a collaborative agreement with Nanobac have cited evidence showing the presence of calcifying nanoparticles (CNPs) in plaque-filled arteries in animal models. This potentially represents a previously unrecognized factor in the development of arteriosclerosis and calcific arterial disease.
Nanobac Announces Mayo Clinic Initial Results for Nanoparticle and Arterial Calcification Study
TAMPA, FL | Posted on May 23rd, 2007
The project seeks to determine if human derived nanoparticles are pathogenic and induce inflammatory and calcific pathologic arterial disease. Scientific evidence increasingly links arterial calcification to the presence of nanosized particles. The project also seeks to confirm prior Nanobac studies, conducted at Washington Hospital, that Nanobac's diagnostic test specifically identifies CNPs.
The study's author, Maria Kraemer, a Mayo Graduate researcher in Rochester, Minn. stated, "The work we are doing with human-derived nanoparticles is important because preliminary studies indicate that they may increase negative responses to arterial injury, possibly leading to blocked arteries and arterial calcification."
Dr. Maniscalco, co-chair of Nanobac, stated: "We believed that CNPs play a major role in pathologic calcification and a multitude of associated disease states such as calcification of arteries and organs. This study, conducted by one of the lead medical and research facilities in the United States, lends credence to our beliefs."
About Nanobac Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Nanobac Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is dedicated to the discovery and development of products and services to improve human health through the detection and treatment of calcifying nanoparticles (CNPs), formerly known as nanobacteria. The company's pioneering research is establishing the pathogenic role of CNPs in soft tissue calcification, particularly in coronary artery, prostate and vascular disease.
Nanobac's drug discovery and development is focused on new and existing compounds that effectively inhibit, destroy or neutralize CNPs. Nanobac manufactures In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) kits and reagents for detecting calcifying nanoparticles. IVD products include a line of assays, proprietary antibodies and reagents for uniquely recognizing CNPs. Nanobac's BioAnalytical Services works with biopharmaceutical partners to develop and apply methods for avoiding, detecting, and inactivating or eliminating CNPs from raw materials.
Experimental Biology is an annual scientific meeting convened by the Federation of American Societies of Experimental Biology, including the American Association of Anatomists; American Physiological Society; American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; American Society for Investigative Pathology; American Society for Nutrition; and the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.
