Research Roundup
As our 2020 fundraising campaign “Choose Hope” continues to advance toward its goal, we’re celebrating these recent research advances:

CARsgen Therapeutics was granted orphan drug designation by the US FDA for CAR-T cells for the treatment of gastric and gastroesophageal junction cancers. The cells target tumors with claudin18.2, a protein that drives some gastric cancers. In animal studies CARsgen has demonstrated that a CAR-T approach can eliminate gastric tumor tissue. 

Columbia University Researchers showed in a preclinical study that combining immunotherapy with chemotherapy in the early stages of gastric cancer slowed down the progression of the cancer. The early combination approach worked by preventing the accumulation of myeloid-derived suppressor cells that can dampen the effectiveness of immuno-oncology drugs.

Researchers in Singapore have developed a blood test that they believe could be used for early detection of gastric cancer. In a trial published in the journal Gut, they showed that the test detected 87% of gastric cancers, some of which were stage 1 tumors.
