Florida news highlights CureSearch-funded immunotherapy trial

Elias Sayour, MD, PhD

A Florida news station, WCJB, recently highlighted CureSearch Catapult Award recipient, Dr. Elias Sayour and his clinical trial to test an innovative approach to treating pediatric high-grade gliomas.  

Like a flu vaccine, which takes pieces of the flu virus and activates the immune system against them, Dr. Sayour’s technique takes pieces of a tumor’s genetic material and activates the immune system to identify and destroy that tumor. If high-grade glioma, a hard-to-treat tumor type, is responsive to this immunotherapy, the treatment will likely translate to other pediatric and adult solid tumors as well.
