The world's oceans - Medicine chest of the future?
Researchers increasingly believe the world's oceans may hold the answers to finding a new arsenal of drugs that could fight many currently incurable diseases such as Alzheimer's, AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and diabetes. Scientists from the U.S., Japan and other Pacific Rim countries will discuss their latest research in this field at a press conference to be broadcast live on the web, Thursday, Dec. 14 at Noon (Hawaii time), Room 260 Yacht Harbor Tower, Renaissance Ilikai Hotel, 1777 Ala Moana Blvd., Honolulu.

  • Dr. William Fenical, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, LaJolla, Ca., reporting on the new potential anticancer agents produced by marine fungi
  • Dr. Murray Munro, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand, discussing Halichondrin A, a compound from a sponge which is difficult to obtain. Halichondrin A is discussed as a possible anticancer agent
  • Dr. Nobuhiro Fusetani, The University of Tokyo, reporting on finding new protease inhibitors from Japanese marine invertebrates, collected off Nakanoshima Island in southern Japan.
