About Medifocus, Inc.
Medifocus, Inc. (TSXV-MFS, OTC-MDFZF) is biotechnology company with a portfolio of medical technologies that utilize head-activation to treat conditions ranging from urological problems to breast cancer treatment and extends to gene therapy. Heat is known to accelerate numerous chemical and biochemical reactions, and Medifocus' portfolio relies on this fact to improve treatment of patients. Its Prolieve® Thermodilatation System offers relief from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) to millions of men with a simple, 45-minute, in-office treatment. Its APA 1000 Breast Cancer Treatment System is currently in phase 3 clinical trials, and it is designed to destroy localized breast tumors through the application of heat alone or in combination with chemotherapy. Medifocus has recently signed an agreement with Duke University to negotiate an exclusive license related to a "method for selective expression of therapeutic genes in cancer cells by hyperthermia." This is a novel approach to control gene expression with focused heat and is a unique method to achieve precise viral delivery of gene therapy and molecular therapeutics on demand. Medifocus will work on further development of the delivery vector, making it universal to accommodate other molecular and genetic therapeutics. The Company believes this could result in an entire stable of gene-specific, heat-activated treatments for a variety of medical conditions.
