#NEWS: A modified form of poliovirus, pioneered at Duke Cancer Institute as a therapy for glioblastoma brain tumors, appears in laboratory studies to also have applicability for pediatric brain tumors when used as part of a cancer vaccine.

“Polioviruses have several advantages for generating antigen-specific CD8 T-cells as a potential cancer vaccine vector,” said senior author Matthias Gromeier, M.D., who developed the poliovirus-based therapy as a member of Duke’s Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center.

Gromeier said the vaccine approach continues to be tested with the goal of initiating a phase 1 clinical trial. Duke Children's #TheFutureOfCancerCareNow #ChangingTheRulesOnCancer

My dear friend and decade long volunteer Jennifer Blankenbeckler, is not only a brain tumor warrior but now is battling leukemia. I am of the opinion that many current chemo and radiation treatments cause long term survivors to develop secondary cancers and that is why we are continuing to fund immuno and gene therapies. On a personal level, Jen is in yet another valiant fight and needs our help. Please make even a small donation to support her. Every dollar counts.https://www.gofundme.com/jennifer-blankenbeckler/donate

Dear Friends of Jennifer, JenB, Jenny B and JB, Our girl Jen has been a tremendous champion for those who face cancer. It became her calling after she endured life-threatening brain cancer 17 years ago. Once recovered and in remission, Jen dedicated her life supporting others with cancer, from f...
