Description

Mycobacterial Cell Wall-DNA Complex (MCC) is formulated from Mycobacterium phlei, a non-pathogenic strain of mycobacteria. MCC has been shown to have immune stimulatory and apoptosis (programmed cell death) activity against cancer cells. The product is a sterile biological composition in a sub-micron suspension. It is produced at the Bioniche manufacturing facility in Pointe-Claire, Quebec.

Mechanism of action

MCC has a therapeutic potential in high grade transitional cell carcinomas of the bladder, including refractory CIS. The combination of MCC with hyaluronic acid (HA) enhances both the apoptosis-inducing activity of MCC against prostate cancer cell lines, and the immune stimulatory activity of MCC (stimulation of anticancer cytokine synthesis by human immune effector cells).

General Function
Oxidoreductase activity, acting on nad(p)h
Specific Function
Functions both as NADH oxidoreductase and as regulator of apoptosis. In response to apoptotic stimuli, it is released from the mitochondrion intermembrane space into the cytosol and to the nucleus,...
