The current crowdfunding campaign has a goal of financing an initial mice study.

“Even if the xenograft study fails, we’ll have gained valuable information that might otherwise be kept secret if it were patented,” Yonemoto told the Times of San Diego. “In that case, researchers will know not to pursue the drug further.” Read the full post.
