EL PASO, TX--(Marketwired - Dec 5, 2013) - Premier Biomedical, Inc. (OTCQB: BIEI), in concert with The University of Texas at El Paso, has conducted a confirmatory study supporting the ability of its breast cancer therapy to outperform chemotherapy in mice -- those on this regimen had a distinctively higher survival rate, smaller tumor volume, and maintained weight, as opposed to losing body mass as was demonstrated by control subjects on standard chemotherapy.
Most significant was the fact that no mouse treated with Premier Biomedical's treatment regimen developed metastatic disease. Of the mice subjected to more traditional therapies in our confirmatory trial, 20% suffered metastases to the lungs. The tumor burden of metastatic lesions causing systemic wasting of body mass is the number one cause of death in humans struggling with breast cancer. This experimental success may demonstrate the efficacy of Premier Biomedical's breast cancer candidate regimen as an immune-system-modulating therapy precluding metastatic complications.
Full details of the study are being submitted for peer review to the journal of Molecular Cancer Therapeutics in the coming weeks. That report will delve into methodologies and validate the statistical significance of results. It will also highlight a subset of our study in which pre-existing breast cancer was not only completely eradicated in mice after they received Premier's treatment, but subsequent attempts to inject new tumor cells into those mice failed to cause cancer because their immune system was apparently primed to reject it.
"This confirmation of results is a positive indication of Premier Biomedical's ability to bring desperately needed therapy to patients in need. If our breast cancer treatment regimen can successfully prevent metastasis in human patients as it has in mice, then the impact of our therapy on survival rates would be profoundly significant," said William A. Hartman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Premier Biomedical, Inc. "Furthermore, our tests verify that we may not only have developed an effective therapy against pre-existing breast cancer, but may also have discovered an effective means of preventing breast cancer recurrence that needs more targeted development. This may be an industry first against the threat of breast cancer."
Mr. Hartman continued, "The very substantial improvements that our therapy demonstrated over conventional treatments for breast cancer in mice support my intention to apply for a Section 902 'Breakthrough Therapy' fast track designation from the FDA when we have concluded preliminary clinical trials in humans. Much thanks is owed to the partners who have and will continue to provide Premier Biomedical with the support and assistance needed to produce such achievements."
