Massive Bio’s scientific advisory board provides subject matter expertise as it relates to the current treatment practices for cancer and how they may be evolving. Our board evaluates:
- Current cancer treatment decisions on the selection of chemotherapy, backbones/biologics, and the sequencing of therapies based on recent data from world scientific meetings (ASCO, ESMO, AACR, etc.)
- Patient selection and approach towards personalized treatment with respect to tumor profiling and biomarker assessment.
- Economic analyses of cancer and how real world data (RWD) studies looking at effectiveness and costs would factor into treatment paradigms.
- The role of immunotherapy checkpoint inhibitors in cancer and other immune-oncology approaches in development.
