Experts in the Media: Check out how Georgia Southern is leading the way in groundbreaking cancer researchDecember 21, 20211 min read
Recently, the expertise of Georgia Southern University’s researchers was featured in an in-depth piece by Business Insider Magazine.
U.S. oncology company OncoTEX has made a significant leap in the future of cancer treatment.
A part of the bioscience development portfolio The iQ Group Global, OncoTEX has licensed a gold compound platform technology, AuraTEX, that helps destroy cancer cells by using the body’s immune system.
The gold-based compounds enter cancer cells and attack them from the inside. Through this process, the tumours are disrupted, and cancer cells are made visible, causing the human body’s immune response to kick in.
With the immune system and gold compounds working together, killer T-cells and the drug destroy the remaining cancer.
The futuristic technology was developed in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin, Georgia Southern University, and Wright State University, before being licensed to OncoTEX.
In the coming months, OncoTEX and the University of Texas at Austin will test the gold compounds in rigorous studies to learn more about the treatment and its potential in fighting various forms of cancer. December 16 - Business Insider
