Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Toronto - Nov 29, 2018 - More than 50% of all cancer patients receive some sort of radiation therapy as part of their disease treatment plan. However, there remains a persistent lack of drug development with radiation combinations. In order to venture into clinical trials, many drug developers want and need preclinical validation of their strategy. The ability to gain this preclinical proof-of-concept is currently an unmet preclinical need. MI Bioresearch utilizes the Small Animal Radiation Research Platform (SARRP; Xstrahl) to provide image-guided focal beam radiation in preclinical mouse models of oncology.
In this live webinar upcoming on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 at 1pm EST, featured speakers from MI Bioresearch Maryland Franklin, Ph.D., Vice President of Scientific Development and Sarah Krueger, Ph.D., Scientist, Imaging Operations will discuss the various models and approaches they have taken to combine focal radiation with immune modulating therapeutics. Both orthotopic and subcutaneous models have been evaluated to determine the ability of radiation to provide synergistic therapeutic benefit. In some models, they have looked at the immune cell modulation following radiation treatment and a discussion on this topic will also be included.
