NOTES TO EDITORS
BP-C1 is an anti-neoplastic agent with palliative properties and is based on Meabco’s patented polyphenolic technology platform. BP-C1 offers a combination of immunomodulation and tumor control in one product. Usually, immunomodulation and tumor control are obtained separately by using two or more drugs.
BP-C1 has been tested in a wide range of animal trials as well as in human phase II clinical trials. The safety profile is high with very low toxicity. BP-C1 acts apoptotic, anti-proliferative and anti-angiogenic on tumor cells, while at the same time contributing to anti-cancer immune regulatory activities. Opposite to other kind of chemotherapy, BP-C1 is given as one daily intramuscular injection in the outpatient clinic or at home by a nurse or the patient himself.
BP-C1 has been tested in close to 300 breast and pancreatic cancer patients in seven countries with promising results. It is noteworthy, that more than 80% of breast cancer patients and more than 60% of pancreatic cancer patients responded to the therapy. BP-C1 is aimed at fighting the cancer combined with strengthening the body’s immune system.
