The PEARLs (Photothermal Enhancing Auto-Regulated Liposomes) were developed by Dr. Gang Zheng of the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and University of Toronto and colleagues, who say they overcome traditional roadblocks to penetrate deeper into tumors.
Application is based on clinical trial results from the Phase 3 ALCANZA and Phase 2 investigator-sponsored studies in cutaneous T cell lymphoma
Metabolomics shifts from map-making to therapeutic strategizing
Earlier-stage cancer programs remain a mainstay of American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) annual meeting generally, but immuno-oncology approaches stand out

The “War on Cancer” declared by the National Cancer Act of 1971 proceeded through a series of evolutionary developments in chemotherapy, radiation treatments and targeted therapies, but until recently was only marginally successful in extending the lives of late-stage cancer patients. A major breakthrough has been achieved over the last decade with the development of immunotherapeutic treatments that empower a patient’s own immune cells to destroy tumors

During these heady and still-early days in the age of clinical studies involving immunotherapy, it is useful to ponder some of the outstanding questions these studies raise

by Laurie Heilmann
As the design of anticancer agents has evolved, the processes, methods and equipment used to aid the fight against cancer have too, leading to the resurgence of immunotherapy as a powerful way of fighting cancer
