Daniel J. O’Connor believes a trigger mechanism that can turn cold tumors hot can help researchers set their focus on delivering potentially life-saving drugs directly to core of a cancerous tumor.
Fabrice Navarro, PhD, summarizes recent disappointing clinical trial results for HIV vaccines and reports on CEA-Leti’s new approach based on engineered lipid nanoparticles that deliver p24 (a viral protein that optimizes the CpG adjuvant’s effect) with pinpoint accuracy.
Bob Ward, Chairman and CEO at Eloxx Pharmaceuticals, discusses nonsense mutations and how his company’s goal is to bring safe and effective therapies to children and adults suffering from genetic diseases as quickly as possible.
DRUG DELIVERY – ENHANZE (®): An Efficient Way to Optimize Biologic Therapies for Subcutaneous Administration
Michael J. LaBarre, PhD, discusses how the ENHANZE drug delivery technology has the potential to improve the pharmacokinetic profiles of co-administered drugs through increased dispersion, absorption, and bioavailability.
Laurie L. Sullivan and Cheryl L. Barton, PhD, say as manufacturers expand the clinical utility and healthcare professionals become more familiar with their efficacy and safety profiles, the checkpoint inhibitor market will continue to expand, becoming the cornerstone of many cancer treatment regimens.
THERAPEUTIC FOCUS – Targeting the Novel LANCL2 Pathway Offers Potential for a Differentiated Treatment Paradigm for Autoimmune Diseases
Andrew Leber, PhD, Raquel Hontecillas, PhD, and Josep Bassaganya-Riera, PhD, say current IBD therapeutics have mediocre efficacy, poor maintenance of response, and damaging side effects, including cancer, infection, and death, resulting in an unmet clinical need for safer and more effective oral therapeutics.
Daniel de Boer explains how the Axiomer technology, a powerful RNA-editing technique that enables the body to repair itself, is being developed as a next-generation therapeutic option for genetic disorders.
Kai Ma, PhD, Ulrich Wiesner, and Michelle Bradbury, MD, PhD, believe ultra-small sub-10 nm particles hold unique properties and represent an emerging area of investigation for biomedical applications.
Flo Orim, MD, PhD, focuses on biomedical aspects of research, development, and commercial endeavors in the human microbiome space, including essential background information, evolution of the field, and advances in basic research.
Aarti Chitale, MBA, believes as the therapeutic landscape evolves and transitions toward personalized and value-based care, regenerative medicine will play an increasingly important role, and moreover, the success of these therapies offers promising opportunities for previously untreated diseases areas.
