Researchers to test two-pronged approach in humans to treat advanced colorectal cancer

For the first time in humans, researchers will test a two-pronged approach to treat advanced stage colorectal cancer (CRC), potentially increasing life expectancy. Combining a DNA vaccine, which boosts the body’s immune response against tumors, with an antibody that blocks the body’s natural defense against the potency of the DNA vaccine, may lead to the […]
