Meet Dr. William Freed-Pastor, M.D., Ph.D.
In a nutshell, Dr. Freed-Pastor has combined 3 drugs that hit the pancreatic cancer tumor hard. The drugs are a combination of antibodies and checkpoint inhibitors.
The therapy works in concert to activate a patient's T-cells and drive them into the tumors to shut down the cancer cell growth. And this would be the easy-peasy explanation... because the long version kinda gets complicated ;-) Read all the scientific/research details here and even more details here!
The Triple Immunotherapy treatment is not yet widely available, but has entered the clinical trial stage and Dr. Freed-Pastor's team is excited about the possibilities. Yet he is cautious to remind us that they don't know yet how this drug combination will transition from the mouse models to the human patients.
Dr. Freed-Pastor understands the urgency for viable pancreatic cancer treatments as he lost his mom to the disease as a young boy...
"Family members are looking for options. Patients are looking for options. I understand the need. I lost my mom to pancreatic cancer when I was a kid. So I know that people will try to move heaven and earth to find better options for those they love."
So thankful for Doctors like Dr. Freed-Pastor! We are joining with him and all the pancreatic cancer patients and their loved ones moving heaven and earth to find a cure!
My Love, Always,
