Jennifer M. King, MD, expands on the design and methodology of a retrospective study of teratoma in residual nonretroperitoneal disease post-chemotherapy and key findings regarding the correlation between teratoma in the primary tumor and rates of post-chemotherapy teratoma in residual non–nonretroperitoneal disease.
Although patients with metastatic nonseminomatous germ-cell tumors who had teratoma in the primary tumor were found to have a higher rate of teratoma in residual non-retroperitoneal disease following chemotherapy, those without teratoma in the primary tumor could have teratoma or active testicular germ-cell tumors in residual disease post-chemotherapy and should be considered for resection.
Jennifer M. King, MD, discusses results from a retrospective study on the prevalence of teratoma and active germ cell tumors in patients who have residual nonretroperitoneal disease following chemotherapy for nonseminomatous germ cell tumors, and what these findings indicate about the need for surgical resection in this patient population.
Attaya Suvannasankha, MD, discusses addressing the incidence of cytokine release syndrome in a first-in-human phase 1/2 trial for patients with relaped/refractory multiple myeloma.
Attaya Suvannasankha, MD, discusses the unique mechanism of action of REGN5459, the early efficacy and safety of the immunotherapy in heavily pretreated patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, and opportunities for further exploration.
The BCMA- and CD3-directed bispecific antibody REGN5459 led to fast onset, deep, and dose-dependent responses sustained over time, with a high frequency of manageable low-grade cytokine release syndrome in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
Researchers at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center are addressing the low colorectal cancer screening rates in rural Indiana communities with a five-year, $3.3 million grant from the National Cancer Institute.
In this episode of ‘How This is Building Me,’ Camidge sits down with Jalal to discuss her transition from life in Jordan to Indianapolis, Indiana, the realities of being a mother in medicine, the importance of transparency in academia, and more.
Gifts totaling $3 million will create an endowed chair in cancer informatics at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center.
IU School of Medicine alumnus Kip E. Virts, MD, has made an $8 million estate gift to support bile duct cancer research at Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Analyzing nearly 500,000 single cells, researchers at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center are refining how to classify colorectal cancer and identify new targets to develop effective therapies.
A gift commitment of $12.5 million to Indiana University School of Medicine from the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer will support new research to harness immunotherapy for breast cancer treatment.
A researcher at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center found the COVID-19 vaccine protected most cancer patients from getting COVID. However, patients with certain types of cancer have a higher and widely varied risk of breakthrough COVID infections after receiving the COVID vaccine.
Indiana University School of Medicine has announced the hiring of a world-recognized medical oncologist and multiple myeloma researcher to lead the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Bert O’Neil, MD, the Joseph W. and Jackie J. Cusick Professor of Oncology, professor of medicine, and director of the Phase I and Gastrointestinal Oncology Programs at Indiana University, discusses the importance of differentiating between neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).
With the growing body of evidence supporting positive outcomes with the use of precision medicine–based approaches, academic cancer centers are increasingly incorporating genomic technology into standard clinical care.
The program brings both high-school and undergraduate students from underrepresented populations to the IU School of Medicine's Indianapolis campus. It offers students positive and meaningful firsthand exposure to biomedical and behavioral science careers that might not otherwise present themselves.
To address the unmet need for better diagnostic and therapeutic modalities in pancreatic cancer, investigators at the Indiana University School of Medicine have established the Pancreatic Cancer Signature Center at the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center.
