Breu explicació del projecte / Brief explanation of your project
DEFIT-CRC stems from a prior collaboration between two companies: Neuro-Bio (Abingdon, UK), which develops inhibitory drugs against T14 peptide for Alzheimer’s, and Xenopat (Barcelona, Spain), which offers the use of orthoxenograft® (the most reliable in vivo system to transfer drug effect results to the clinic) for drug development. They detected that T14 was overexpressed in metastatic colorectal cancer tissues. Building on that, DEFIT-CRC aims at developing a new antitumor and/or antimetastatic drug for patients with colorectal cancer.
