Novel Drosophila Tumor Model for Screening Anti-cancer Drugs and Methods thereof

Patent Status: 

Patent Filed

Indian Patent Applicaton No: 

1265/DEL/2013

Patent Category: 

Overview: 

Drosophila model for screening anti cancer drugs targeted against pathway specific signaling pathways, such as Wnt.

Key Features: 

  • Technique validated by genetic and/or chemical suppression of tumor progression by antagonizing Wnt signaling.
  • Accurate and reliable platform for screening of anti-cancer drugs.
  • Suitable to screen for putative anti-Wnt signaling molecules.
  • Strategy drug screening based on the rationale that loss of select Drosophila tumor suppressors trigger Wnt-mediated carcinogenesis.
  • Advantage of mechanistic understanding anti-cancer drug actions.

Applications: 

  • Pharmaceutical and Drug Industries.
