Immunotherapies combine for triple threat against deadly brain cancer
I love these kinds of projects. I think the cure is going to be a combination of treatments that work together to eliminate the cancer. I doubt we will get a magic bullet single treatment that would do it. The Anti-cd47 antibody is experimental which makes it hard to use in new combinations. It has been shown to be safe and help somewhat in other cancers. I am working on a change in the laws to allow drugs like that to be approved in a new pathway, called conditional approval, which would allow us to not only try combinations like this now, but it also requires that all of the people who used these conditionally approved drugs to be followed in a registry to see how the drug and combinations work so we can home in on the ultime cure decades sooner!
