Manhattan-based Colgate-Palmolive Co. and biotech firm Introgen Therapeutics Inc. signed an agreement to develop oral care products aimed at fighting mouth cancer.

Colgate bought $20 million of Austin, Tex.-based Introgen’s shares and acquired the rights to any products developed by the two companies. Introgen uses gene therapy to create anti-cancer agents.

Researchers will use Introgen’s tumor suppressors to create oral rinses, gels and other products to treat patients diagnosed with leukoplakia -- a pre-cancerous condition that can lead to oral cancer.

Good stuff. I wonder if they are using an antagonist of the PML binding domain. Anyone know the molecular basis?
