Cerebraca® Wafer for the Treatment of Recurrent Malignant Brain Tumors Resistant to Standard Therapy | Hualien Tzu Chi Hospital

Date: 2023/3/9

Cerebraca® wafer is an invention specifically designed for the treatment of recurrent malignant brain tumors that have shown resistance to standard therapies. It is a biodegradable polymer containing EF-API-001. The main therapeutic mechanisms of Cerebraca wafer include: targeting and eradicating brain tumor stem cells, promoting necrosis, inhibiting proliferation, and suppressing tumor invasion and metastasis. Additionally, it can reduce the activity of MGMT and PD-L1 in malignant brain tumors, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of treatment for recurrent malignant brain tumors.

Cerebraca® Wafer has achieved significant progress in Phase I clinical trials for the treatment of malignant brain tumors, and has been invited to speak at the Asian Congress of Neurological Surgeons (ACNS).

Date: 2022/6/9

Hualien Tzu Chi Hospital collaborated with the neurosurgery team from Tri-Service General Hospital to conduct clinical trials for the development of a new drug, Cerebraca® Wafer, for the treatment of malignant brain tumors, under the leadership of the Superintendent, Dr. Shinn-Zon. Dr. Lin was invited by the President of the Asian Congress of Neurological Surgeons, Professor Yoko Kato, to share the results of the phase I clinical trial via video conference on June 8th at 8:30 PM.

Our Team Is Honored with the National Innovation Award – Clinical Innovation for Treating Recurrent Malignant Brain Tumors

Date: 2019/12/25

Everfront Biotech is a pharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of drugs for rare diseases. Cerebraca® Wafer is produced through a sterile process by combining a small molecule targeted anticancer drug with biomedical materials. It enables controlled release of the drug into the surrounding brain tissue, effectively killing tumor cells that cannot be removed by surgery and inhibiting drug resistance to frontline chemotherapy. Animal studies have shown an average survival extension of 2.5 times compared to current medications.

Preventing Recurrence of Malignant Brain Tumors: Hualien Tzu Chi Hospital's Research and Technology Transfer Benefit Patients

Date: 2019/12/8

Breakthrough in Malignant Brain Tumor Treatment: Hualien Tzu Chi Hospital has transferred its technology to Everfront Biotech, which has developed a patch (Cerebraca® Wafer) containing chemically synthesized components (EF-API-001) of Chinese Angelica (Danggui). This patch (Cerebraca® Wafersuccessfully inhibits tumor growth. Dr. Shinn-Zong Lin, Superintendent of Hualien Tzu Chi Hospital, explains, “During surgery, when there are remaining cells, we use the patch (Cerebraca® Wafer), and apply it directly to the surface of the brain after the surgery.” In the case of Stage IV malignant brain tumors, which have a high recurrence rate and an average lifespan of four months, mouse experiments have shown an additional 26 days of survival compared to traditional medications. The patch can inhibit cancer cell proliferation, induce apoptosis, and has the potential for future development as a targeted therapy or oral medication for market release.

Game-Changer in Malignant Brain Tumor Treatment: New Drug Extends Survival by Two Years

Date: 2012/4/24

A breakthrough in brain tumor treatment has emerged! EverFront Biotech recently proposed a novel approach to cancer therapy and innovative treatments for brain tumors. The research focuses on the anti-cancer effects of EF-API-001, a small molecule compound. In experimental studies using rats, the targeted drug was delivered to the tumor site using small-molecule technology, ensuring stable drug release. Rats receiving a single treatment demonstrated an average survival time twice as long as those treated with conventional therapies. Founder of EverFront Biotech, Mr. Ho-Jin Chen, stated that this groundbreaking small-molecule cancer drug will be presented at three prestigious international conferences, marking a new milestone in Taiwan’s pharmaceutical research and development. In addition to the brain tumor therapy, EverFront Biotech is also engaged in developing a drug for the treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), and promising results have been obtained in their research on ALS, with a patent application currently in progress.
