- Data highlights the use and potential of PEGPH20 to enhance the anti-cancer activity of monoclonal antibodies and NK cell access in breast and ovarian cancer preclinical models - SAN DIEGO,
MONROVIA, Calif., July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Xencor, Inc.
Scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) today report a discovery that they hope will lead to the development of a powerful new way of treating an aggressive form of breast cancer.
Additional preclinical data highlights the pharmacologic properties of PEGPH20 SAN DIEGO, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc.
An optical imaging technique that measures metabolic activity in cancer cells can accurately differentiate breast cancer subtypes, and it can detect responses to treatment as early as two days after therapy administration.
Using two drugs that inhibit the growth factor HER2 for preoperative treatment of early-stage HER2-positive breast cancer appears to have better results than treatment with a single agent.
Precisely quantifying the amount of three different HER growth proteins, along with several other proteins believed linked to breast cancer, did not predict a patient's outcome after treatment for HER2-Positive Breast Cancer with Herceptin, say Mayo Clinic researchers.
The first randomized trial to investigate the use of trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) – an antibody-guided drug – for the initial treatment of HER2- (human epidermal growth factor receptor-2) positive metastatic breast cancer has shown that it makes a significant difference to the time women live without their disease worsening.
