Wistar Scientists Develop Novel Immunotherapy Technology for Prostate Cancer

A study led by Wistar scientists describes a novel immunotherapeutic strategy for the treatment of cancer based on the use of synthetic DNA to directly encode protective antibodies against a cancer specific protein.

Favorable Safety Profile Seen in Immunotherapy Drug in Aggressive Form of Lung Cancer

The immunotherapy drug pembrolizumab has demonstrated a favorable safety profile and “promising durable clinical activity” in pretreated patients who exhibit high levels of the PD-L1 protein in advanced stages of small cell lung cancer. That is according to data from a phase 1b clinical trial conducted by Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey investigators and colleagues at centers around the world.

Skewing the Aim of Targeted Cancer Therapies

The aim of targeted gene-based cancer therapies could often be skewed from the start. A widespread concept about how cells produce proteins proved incorrect 62% of the time in a new study in ovarian cancer cells of the relationship between RNA and protein levels.

Cancer-Fighting T Cells Are Smarter, Stronger Than Experts Thought

It takes a minuscule amount of force to make T cells behave in the lab as they behave in the body. That finding is a leap in cancer therapy research.

Does Stronger Initial Response to Cancer Treatment Predict Longer Overall Survival?

It seems like such a simple question: Do patients whose tumors shrink more in response to targeted treatment go on to have better outcomes than patients whose tumors shrink less? But the implications of a recent study demonstrating this relationship are anything but simple and could influence both the design of future clinical trials and the goals of oncologists treating cancer.

Too Many Drug Trials, Too Few Patients

With the arrival of two revolutionary treatment strategies, immunotherapy and personalized medicine, cancer researchers have found new hope — and a problem that is perhaps unprecedented in medical research.

Using Alternative Medicine Only for Cancer Linked to Lower Survival Rate

Patients who choose to receive alternative therapy as treatment for curable cancers instead of conventional cancer treatment have a higher risk of death, according to researchers from the Cancer Outcomes, Public Policy and Effectiveness Research (COPPER) Center at Yale School of Medicine and Yale Cancer Center.
