OncoSynergy has joined forces with the Musella Foundation to raise funds for the company's FDA approved Phase 1 clinical trial in recurrent glioblastoma.
OncoSynergy is a biotechnology company developing innovative therapeutics to improve outcomes for patients suffering from the worst cancers. Glioblastoma has always been at the heart of the company's mission as OncoSynergy was founded by neurosurgeons and scientists frustrated with the lack of effective treatment options and the inability to cure glioblastoma with a scalpel.
OncoSynergy is ready to bring its innovative solution to patients. Our goal is to raise at least $60,000 to fund treatment of at least 1 patient in our FDA approved trial. With your support, we hope to exceed this goal and be able to treat more glioblastoma patients. Each patient we treat helps us and the oncology community better understand how our therapeutic, OS2966, works against cancer. This is powerful information that will allow us to address the shortcomings of today's approach to cancer and translate this cancer treatment to the entire oncology population.
Our mission is led by Co-Founder and CEO, Dr. Anne-Marie Carbonell, a physician trained in neurosurgery. During her neurosurgery training, Dr. Carbonell herself became a patient. No longer able to operate, she has since translated her unique physician/patient dual perspective to OncoSynergy's mission ensuring the company remains patient-focused in its values and clinical trial design.
Key to the trial is OncoSynergy's innovative therapy, OS2966, an anti-CD29 immunotherapy. Current best available cancer therapies target only one biological mechanism that cancer cells use to survive. Unfortunately, history shows that cancer cells adapt by hijacking other biological mechanisms to ensure survival. After decades of lab bench work, OncoSynergy identified a central cancer driver, CD29, as a key gatekeeper between cancer cells and its survival mechanisms. By targeting this "Achilles heel" of cancer, we are able to isolate cancer cells from all lifelines and promote its death.
