In a nutshell

This phase 1/2 trial is examining the effectiveness of treatment with GB1275 alone or in combination with immunotherapy in patients with solid tumors such as triple-negative breast cancer. The main outcome to be measured will be dose toxicity and tumor response to the treatment. This study is being conducted in Tennessee and Texas, US.

The details

The standard treatment for advanced cancers used to be surgery and chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment that consists of a combination of agents that kill cancer cells. However, this treatment had only a limited effectiveness in advanced cases. The combination of chemotherapy with immunotherapy has been shown to improve the effectiveness of cancer treatment. Immunotherapy such as GB1275 helps the immune system to attack and kill cancer cells.
