Cosimo Commisso, Ph.D., studies pancreatic cancer, one of the deadliest cancers. He is particularly interested in how the tumor gets nutrients from its environment, as cutting this fuel supply could stop the cancer’s growth.
Scientists at Sanford Burnham Prebys have discovered that combining immunotherapy with a drug called tumor necrosis factor (TNF) eradicated a deadly type of pediatric brain tumor in mice. The discovery, published in Nature Neuroscience, is expected to lead to a clinical trial to test the benefits of the treatment in patients. The findings also hold implications for other cancers that do not respond to immunotherapy.
