This In-Depth Focus reviews the history of cancer treatments, looks at improving the translation of disease biology though phenomics, and considers how to enhance cell bioprocessing through cell-based combinatorial culture.

Screening In-Depth Focus #2 2018
  • Cancer drug screening: the historical perspective
    Chemotherapy with cytotoxic and growth inhibitory drugs have played an important role in cancer therapy, used either alone or in combination with other treatment modalities such as surgery, radiation or biological therapy. Chemotherapy, in most instances, was the only alternative treatment for metastatic cancer – mainly given as drug combinations.
  • Improving the translation of disease biology though phenomics
    Today any self-respecting pharma-focused conference agenda isn’t complete without at least one session on the use of more physiological phenotypic assays for drug discovery, writes Paul Andrews.
  • Regenerative medicine: enhance cell bioprocessing through cell-based combinatorial culture
    Regenerative medicine has emerged as one of the major areas of modern medical therapy. Its primary objective is to restore or establish normal function through the regeneration or replacement of diseased cells, tissues or entire organs. There are a variety of methods and approaches by which this can be achieved. These techniques include cell and gene therapy, tissue engineering or regenerative drug therapy.
