Investigators at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in collaboration with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PCAN), have opened a Phase II clinical trial of gemcitabine with tetanus toxoid vaccine booster for patients with pancreatic cancer. Patients diagnosed with pancreatic ductal carcinoma will be treated with gemcitabine as standard of care and boosted once with the human childhood vaccine to tetanus toxoid.

From the study summary:

“The investigator is developing an immune therapy against pancreatic cancer. Immune cells, known as ‘T cells with tumor killing capacity’, are involved in this immune therapy. In mice with pancreatic cance there is evidence that one tetanus toxoid (TT) vaccination (that patients receive from childhood) combined with Gemcitabine activates these killer T cells. (Gemcitabine improves T cell responses.) These killer T cells are able to destroy tumor cells uploaded with TT protein (such studies are planned in future clinical trials). The goal of this study is to test whether one TT vaccination combined with Gemcitabine treatment activates the same T cells in pancreatic cancer patients.”

OncologyWatch.com – Peer-Reviewed Journal Articles & Current Clinical Trials

Oncology Publications & Clinical Research, Updated in Real Time

I invite you to bookmark a new website I’ve launched at OncologyWatch.com. OncologyWatch delivers updated listings of journal publications and clinical trials, updated in real time as they are published.

Two open-access references are essential to OncologyWatch: PubMed, the archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature maintained by the US National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine; and ClinicalTrials.gov, the registry and results database of publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants conducted around the world, also maintained by NIH.

Browse or search OncologyWatch to find your target cancer (the nomenclature mirrors that of the US National Cancer Institute’s index of cancer types). One click executes a customized search for relevant journal articles and clinical trials. Once you land on the NIH sites, you’ll have the option to further customize your searches. Filter for articles with free full text, for example, or for clinical trials in a specific geographic location.

Why I Built OncologyWatch

OncologyWatch is one of two websites that I maintain to provide information relevant to health care. My other site, A Knowledge Machine, provides a broad range of information relevant to health, art, and social progress.

The epistemological method for my websites derives from “As We May Think,” a 1945 Atlantic Monthly essay by Vannevar Bush, President Roosevelt’s science adviser during World War II. Bush’s vision led to the development of the hyperlink and the World Wide Web.

Over the past three decades, I’ve had the good fortune to work with many smart and generous colleagues in the not-for-profit and for-profit sectors who have taught me a great deal and given me the opportunity to help them weave the stuff of the future.

OncologyWatch and A Knowledge Machine reproduce and support the ongoing diligence that now informs my work as a public relations consultant for clients in health, art, and social progress organizations.

To make full use of my work, consider also following my blog posts and Twitter feed as I build my next-generation integrated web platform in support of activists for peace, sound environmental stewardship, humane economic policy, and promotion of human health and creativity.
