ULM Researchers Patent New Drug

from The News Star

Two researchers at the University of Louisiana at Monroe's College of Pharmacy have received a patent for a new drug designed to prevent the spread of prostate cancer. Girish Shah, Ph.D., and Khalid El Sayed, Ph.D., professors in ULM's basic pharmaceutical sciences department, developed the drug by isolating a compound derived from a Red Sea sponge. El Sayed said he was diving for sponges in the Red Sea in 2003 and later presented some of the extracted chemical compounds to Shah in 2007 in hopes that one of the compounds would help in Shah's prostate cancer research. The duo designed a unique screening platform enabling them to identify one right compound among 50. more
