Postdoctoral fellow Dr. Yang Zeng, from the Vaccine and Immunotherapy Center (VIC), presented a poster on novel combination immunotherapy against ovarian cancer at the American Association for Cancer Research 2017 Annual meeting in Washington DC. This immunotherapy combines a mesothelin-targeted immune-activating fusion protein VIC-008 with an immune checkpoint inhibitor anti-PD-L1 antibody which significantly inhibits tumor growth and prolongs survival in mice. VIC research scientist Dr. Huabiao Chen presented a new therapy that combines VIC-008 and AMD3100 to improve antitumor immunity against malignant mesothelioma at the same meeting.
