As the cancer treatment landscape shifts from traditional to immune-targeted therapies, it’s important to understand the benefits and limitations of each approach. By examining the faces of immunotherapy, we can best understand how immunotherapy is changing the world.
As one of the cancer types that we at OncoSec concentrate on, we are constantly involved in not only developing an alternative treatment for melanoma but also evaluating the public and professional knowledge base surrounding the development, prevention and awareness of the disease. As a company directly involved in the research side, we are constantly inundated with statistics and methods. However, much of the general public is still unaware of the potentially deadly consequences of melanoma. Perhaps it is due to the relatively small size of moles, an increase in survival rates or the predominance of tanning but something in our culture needs a serious shift, if we are going to collectively work towards better preventative measures.
