The Tournament will be competitive and it will have many Game-Changing moments but none will make more of an impact at what the Cancer Research Institute did this week as
"the FDA approved a new immunotherapy drug for the treatment of cancer. This game-changing breakthrough has the potential to dramatically improve treatment of many different types of cancer. Known as Keytruda (pembrolizumab), the drug belongs to a class of immunotherapies called checkpoint inhibitors. These drugs “take the brakes off” the immune response to cancer. They represent the most promising new cancer therapies to emerge in decades. It targets a molecule called PD-1. The drug has been approved for the treatment of advanced or inoperable melanoma in patients who have failed prior treatment.
The Cancer Research Institute has played a central role in the basic science and clinical research that paved the way for the FDA approval of this important new drug. Checkpoint inhibitors like Keytruda as well as other immunotherapies in development, especially when used in combination, will ultimately transform the treatment of many if not all types of cancer. It is a wonderful day for patients."
This approval once again demonstrates the power of cancer research to save lives.
