New neoadjuvant platform helps inform combo immunotherapy selection for cancers
WASHINGTON, DC - In order to address some of the major challenges facing the immuno-oncology field, Dr. Tom Marron, PhD, has developed a platform to help researchers decide which drugs or combination of drugs to advance toward late-stage clinical trials. Marron spoke with ScienceBoard Editor in Chief, Samantha Black, PhD, onsite at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer's 2021 annual meeting. Read More
Experimental drug enhances immunotherapy against pancreatic cancer in mice
A combination treatment that included an experimental small molecule drug not only led to a reduction in tumor growth in murine models of pancreatic cancer, but it also eliminated the cancer in some mice. The findings were published in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer on November 4. Read More
The continued challenges of flavivirus serology
Flaviviruses are a genus of positive-sense RNA viruses, largely transmitted by mosquito and tick vectors that cause infections, including yellow fever, dengue, the Zika virus, West Nile virus, Japanese encephalitis, and tick-borne encephalitis. In fighting the emergence of flaviviruses, a well-established gap in our arsenal is the availability of accurate diagnostic data. Read More
