Marek Malecki MD PhD developed a cancer suicide gene therapy. It was initially developed for ovarian cancers as the means of targeted elimination of cancer cells, while retaining healthy cells intact. This is the best way to retain women’s fertility in cases of cancer. It is based upon the synthetic scFv and probes, which he invented and patented (USPTO and WIPO). A big role in this gene therapy is played by the nuclear routing network, which he discovered during his tenure at the NIH, National Biotechnology Resource. He also developed the unique protocols of cryo-immobilization of living cells which retain their high viability.
