Key Step Forward

Press Releases
SIWA Therapeutics Takes a Key Step Forward in Novel Efforts to Treat Cancer by Removing Senescent Cells Announces Humanization of Anti-Aging Antibody that Inhibits Tumor Metastasis Chicago, IL, May 18, 2017 – Biotechnology innovator SIWA Therapeutics announced that it has successfully humanized its SIWA 318 monoclonal antibody, a significant milestone in the race to treat cancer and numerous other diseases by removing senescent cells, which become increasingly problematic as humans age. Senescent cells lose their ability to divide or replicate for a variety of reasons and also secrete chemicals which interfere with the normal functions of other cells as well as contribute to inflammation. When too many senescent cells accumulate, they can cause or exacerbate a variety of age-related and degenerative diseases including arthritis, ALS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, heart disease and…

Senescent Cell Clearing Antibody

Press Releases
SIWA Therapeutics Demonstrates Senescent Cell Clearing Antibody Inhibits Tumor Metastasis Chicago IL -- SIWA Therapeutics today reports results of its recent in vivo preclinical study which showed that its monoclonal antibody for removing senescent cells, SIWA 318, significantly inhibited tumor metastasis. Importantly, there were no observable adverse effects from the treatment and no increase in tumor growth over the control group. “These results suggest that the removal of senescent cells may become a therapeutic approach against metastatic cancers,” said Lewis Gruber, co-founder and chief executive officer of SIWA Therapeutics. “Based on data we and the rest of the scientific community have generated over the last several years, the evidence is clearly mounting that senescent cells are causally implicated in the manifestation and progression of many diseases including cancer metastasis.” The study…
