The initial cell fusion
occurred in apoptosis has not been reported until very recently and its mechanism remains largely unknown (Xing et al.
This is important because the exploitation of cell fusion
, whether for killing cancer cells, repairing damaged tissues or stimulating the immune system, depends on making sure that it is accurately targeted," he says.
Cyto Pulse Sciences is a medical device company focused on the development and manufacturing of electric field based systems for electroporation and cell fusion
for research, commercial and clinical applications.
The proprietary vaccine used in this clinical trial was produced using a cell fusion
technology in which cancer cells surgically removed from the patient are chemically combined with powerful, immune-stimulating (dendritic) cells.
Sinden and his co-workers recently used cell fusion
to develop the first hybrid potato with a built-in insect repellent.
Unlike other cancer vaccine approaches, cell fusion
technology eliminates the need to identify specific proteins found on tumors because the technique utilizes the entire tumor cell to provide targets for the immune system to attack.
This surprising technique avoids the cell fusion
step of most other methods to create antibody-producing cells that survive indefinitely in the laboratory.
This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements regarding the filing of an IND for two additional dendritic cell fusion
Modern biotechnology entails the use of cell fusion
techniques, bio-informatics (use of information technology for documenting bio-diversity and studying DNA structures), genetic engineering, structure based molecular design and recombinant DNA technology (insertion of foreign gene), and hybridoma technology (fusing and multiplying cells).
By the first half of 2002, Genzyme Molecular Oncology could have data from five cancer vaccine cell fusion
trials and, pending positive clinical responses, could move into pivotal trials with these products in the second half of 2002.

Both trials will utilize a novel technology called dendritic/cancer cell fusion
, developed by Drs.
Several observations have also established that inhibitors of cholesterol synthesis inhibit cell fusion
formation induced by HIV-l and that drugs extracting cholesterol from the cellular membrane exert an anti-HIV-1 effect in-vitro.
In March 2000, Genzyme Molecular Oncology exclusively licensed dendritic/cancer cell fusion
technology for all therapeutic uses from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
This award will enhance our extensive work in the area of identifying orally active fusion inhibitors targeting the virus-host cell fusion
