This month’s laser sharp nomination goes to Takuya Osada‘s team at Duke University Medical Center. Their impressive results on novel immunotherapy combination strategy for breast cancer was published in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer. The team combined immune checkpoint blockage with HSP90-targeted light therapy using ML7710 medical laser. This combination resulted in strong activation of antitumor immunity and prolonged survival in syngeneic breast cancer models. Impressively, adding immune checkpoint blockers even resulted in an increased antitumor activity elsewhere, outside the local light-treated area, showing potential for treatment of disseminated disease and high clinical relevance. More about the study can be found from the article link below.
Modulight is very happy to be supporting this research. We would like to deliver our warmest congratulations to the research team!#LaserSharpResearch #breastcancer #immunotherapy #HeatShockProtein #targetedtherapy #immunecheckpoints #noveltherapies
