13:58 EDTRHHBYOvarian cancer vaccine yields clinically beneficial responses
A report today at the American Association for Cancer Research meeting in Washington demonstrated a novel two-step immunotherapy approach yielded clinically beneficial responses in patients with advanced ovarian cancer, including one patient who achieved complete remission, according to data from two phase I clinical trials presented at the AACR Annual Meeting 2013, held in Washington, D.C., April 6-10. The treatments were given in conjunction with Roche's (RHHBY) Avastin or bevaccizumab, a drug that controls blood vessel growth. Combining bevacizumab with immunotherapy makes a powerful duo, according to Lana Kandalaft, Pharm.D., M.T.R., Ph.D., assistant professor and director of clinical development and operations at the Ovarian Cancer Research Center in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.. Currently, the vaccine trial is still open to accrual to test new combinatorial strategies. Reference Link
