Patent Category: 

Overview: 

Development of fly tumor model induced by specific gene mutations and its use in screening anti-cancer drugs in vivo.

Key Features: 

  • Generating a target-based in vivo screening/testing system for anti- cancer drugs.
  • Utilizes the rich genetics of the fruit fly Drosophila.
  • Optimizing the said system of drug testing wherein the tumors display primitive cell states by genetic¬†manipulation

Applications: 

  • Use by Cancer drug manufacturers to screen their drugs for efficacy.
  • Drugs can be tested¬† screened for efficacy on fruit fly to avoid further investments in drugs of lesser efficacies.
