UPDATE: PRECISION THERAPEUTICS 

John Nemunaitis, M.D.“Since the sequencing of the human genome, we have known the difference between cancer molecular profile and normal. On April 10, 2018, the Division of Hematology/Oncology, in collaboration with Department of Surgery, opened the first gene transfer clinical trial ever at the UToledo Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center for recurrent melanoma patients. It involves novel immunotherapy using IL12 plasmid and check point inhibitor. Earlier testing revealed an 8-fold improvement in cancer response (shrinkage) compared to expected best standard treatment response.”
