Researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center, working with colleagues at The University of Arizona and Arizona State University, have developed a new combination agent approach targeting tumor receptors based on their variety of cell surface proteins. The approach, which was tested in pancreatic cancers and melanoma modeled in tumor-bearing mice, opens the possibility of developing new multivalent agents that can target unique and multiple receptor combinations in tumor cells. This is a significant improvement over current single-target strategies.

While many scientific discoveries happen after years of research, some breakthroughs can happen when least expected. USF graduate student Michele Parry noticed a trend that even her professors missed. Cancer mutations happen more frequently in larger genes than smaller genes. This finding merited a published paper with her name listed first — a rare feat for a master’s student. ..Read More ⇒
