New Model Mimics Human Tumors for Accurate Testing of Cancer Drugs
Published:11 Oct.2018    Source:ScienceDaily

 Walter and Eliza Hall Institute researchers have genetically engineered a new laboratory model that enables accurate testing of anti-cancer drugs by mimicking the complexity of human cancers.

 

Using this advanced model, researchers will be able to discover the safest and most effective ways to use promising drugs called MCL-1 inhibitors in the clinic.

 

The work was led by PhD student Ms Margs Brennan, Dr Gemma Kelly and Associate Professor Marco Herold, and has been published in the journal Blood
