As oncology trials become more complex, scientists are finding that the oncogenic drivers of disease are crafting more discrete patient populations and are therefore turning what was once a very generalized disease state into a rare indication. Now, we are not only working with oncogenic drivers, but also the very genetic code that makes each of us the same, yet different.
TORONTO (PRWEB) OCTOBER 30, 2019
The impact that oncogenic drivers have on our ability to define a population and ensure equal access to treatment is becoming more critical.
In a free session on Monday, November 18, 2019 at 11am EDT (4pm GMT/UK) join guest speakers from Synteractincluding Christopher Heckman, Vice President of Oncology Development and Derek Ansel, Director of Rare & Orphan Diseases for a discussion about these challenges, with strategies and real-life solutions to support patients, sites and sponsors.
The alteration of genetic material held within a person’s cells as a way of treating or preventing disease is the simple, common definition of gene therapy. This type of therapy is rapidly progressing within the world of oncology, for both treatment and prevention of cancers. However, the future of gene therapy presents some unique questions and challenges. Are we heading in the right direction? What are the ethical considerations? And how do we ensure access to these therapies?
