I am sorry to be the messenger of a disappointing news. I am so upset
Here is the update from Danny Goss who is one of the administrators of “ErSO activism for breast cancer” group on Facebook.
A message from admins :
Like everyone else in this group, we were very disappointed today to hear through multiple channels that Bayer have decided to terminate the licensing agreement with Systems Oncology to develop pre-clinical drug ErSO as a cancer therapy. We do know that work continues on developing ErSO in the lab where it was discovered, and we maintain hope that Systems Oncology will continue to move ErSO forward towards Phase 1 trials in humans.
We are trying to get in touch with Systems Oncology to find out their plans for ErSO in the future, if we hear any news we will post it here as soon as we can. As all admin members in the group are also on our own MBC journeys, we know how difficult this news is to take, and we worry about the impact of the news on the members of the group. We think everyone here is incredibly brave while battling this insidious and hideous disease and we really believe there is good reason to maintain hope, not just with ErSO but with other, emerging MBC treatments. All the best to everyone and we will keep working to keep you as informed as we can.
