Imaging Biomarkers - Future or Reality

Video   May 26, 2015


Imaging has been at the heart of Medicine for many decades. However, its influence is changing as the need increases not only for diagnosis of disease, but also for quantification of disease extent, identification of suitable candidates for (often expensive) treatment and for testing of both treatment response or assessment of potential side effects for new treatments. The modalities are largely driven by large data generation, either using CT, MRI or PET methods. This puts an emphasis on data handling, development of software tools and particularly (with the advent of multicentre trials) the requirement for rigorous quality assurance of all participating sites. Not all imaging is currently ready for use as a biomarkers, yet many man hours are being invested into creating the tools required to further both more advanced treatments as well as for more personalised healthcare delivery. This presentation will discuss the potential role of imaging-based biomarkers, the requirements and some examples of how this can be applied towards clinical trials.

CAR T-Cell Therapy: How Does It Work?


CAR T-cell therapy, like all forms of cancer immunotherapy, seeks to sharpen and strengthen the immune system’s inherent cancer-fighting powers. It involves treating patients with modified versions of their own immune system T cells.


How Does Cancer Immunotherapy Work?


Traditionally, cancer treatment has revolved around chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. But thanks to groundbreaking immune checkpoint blockade research led by Jim Allison, Ph.D., we have a new way to treat cancer: immunotherapy. Rather than treating the cancer directly, immunotherapy trains the immune system to attack cancer.
