ME Therapeutics Inc., a preclinical stage biotechnology company working on novel cancer fighting drugs in the field of Immuno-Oncology, is pleased to announce the publication of their joint research on the role of G-CSF in breast and colorectal cancer in the peer-reviewed scientific journal, Cancer Research Communications. This journal aims to accelerate the pace of discovery and stimulate innovation in cancer science and medicine. The joint research was a collaboration between ME Therapeutics Inc. and Dr. Kenneth Harder’s laboratory at the University of British Columbia and was funded in part by an Innovation to Commercialization Competition Award from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research. Importantly, our publication describes the role tumor-derived G-CSF plays in suppressing immune responses against cancer and supports the company’s focus on G-CSF as a potentially important target in immuno oncology.
