CAT-8015 Clinical Trial

Date: April 12, 2007

I have heard from a few members about the newly announced clinical trial using CAT-8015. This is often how we focus on new topics to write about, issues triggered by feedback or questions we get from you.

CAT-8015 is a new immunotoxin drug making its debut, similar to the drugs Ontak and LMB-2 that we discussed little over three years ago on our website. Immunotoxins are monoclonal antibodies (similar in that sense to Rituxan and Campath) but with the major difference that they carry with them a toxic payload to kill the cells they target. We bring you the clinical trial information and discuss the pros and cons of this approach in our latest article, CAT-8015 Clinical Trial.

On a different and sadder note, please join us in honoring the memory of our friend and board member Bill Duffy who passed away a few days ago. His obituary is posted on the Topics website.

Be well,
