Gloucester Pharmaceuticals Inc.

Two subtypes of T-cell mediated lymphomas have been very difficult to treat using the existing cytotoxic chemotherapy treatments. CTCL and peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) patients receiving chemotherapy may experience severe, dose-limiting toxicities and develop resistance to the therapy. Gloucester Pharmaceuticals Inc. is developing a treatment that potentially is more effective than chemo, the company says, and the National Institutes of Health is backing its development.

Hemocellular Therapeutics Inc.

Hemocellular Therapeutics Inc. hopes to extend the life of donated human platelets with proprietary freeze-drying technology. Its Stasix, now in preclinical development, is a powdered form of platelets that can be stored at room temperature indefinitely. Once rehydrated, full functionality is restored immediately. Furthermore, Hemocellular claims that since it removes protein plasma before freeze-drying, no cross-matching to patients is necessary.
