I am interested in the area of individualized cancer therapy. Means they take your tumor and tag it so that your immune system will activate and kill any remaining cells like that they can find. This will eliminate whatever metestatic colonies from the origional tumor as well as anything at the origional site not removed during surgery.The two companies I have heard of that are working on this idea are AGEN and AVXT.AVXT is starting marketing of it's product for melonoma in Australia and is in phase 3 with promising preliminary results with one product. AGEN is working on a product which will eventially be tested out for multiple other types of cancers.Both companies products are reportedly well tolerated without bad side effects- this makes them naturals to use as adjuncts to other therapies to increase survival odds. (In the case on AGEN's product M-VAX, the survival rate increased to 55% with no side effects vs standard treatment survival rate of 33% with side effects)Personalized medicine seems intuitively to be adventageous. Anyone else have thoughts on this?Kathy
