Emerging Therapeutics Showcase: Dr. Anna Moore

By redefining health and disease we can drive medicine toward health and away from treating symptoms. In this way, we refocus medicine on the restoration of health rather than amelioration of symptoms.
Image-Guided Therapy For Metastatic Breast Cancer
This talk will cover a new therapy for treating metastatic breast cancer based on silencing microRNA-10b responsible for viability of meta-static cells. Pre-clinical studies showed elimination of established metastasis in mice using image-guided nanoparticles conjugated to anti-miR-10b antisense oligonucleotides. Studies in large animals are under way; human clinical trials are to follow.
