Myriad Genetics Discovers Cancer-Killing Drug

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Hot on the heels of a major article in the scientific journal Cell in which Myriad Genetics helped make major discoveries, the company has announced that it discovered a novel anti-cancer drug. The substance, called MPI-176716, induces cell death (apoptosis) in several cancers, including prostate cancer and T cell lymphomas, without harming normal human cells. Researchers have demonstrated that the drug is not generally toxic to cells, but uses the cell's own biological mechanism to kill them. The drug was discovered using Myriad's ProNet(R) proteomics technology, and the company is conducting further experiments to maximize the effectiveness of the compound. Myriad Genetics is on the Mormon Stock Index.
