Other panellists were Dr. Robert Stein, CSO of Agenus, Inc., Dr. Reiner Laus, CEO of Annias Immunotherapeutics, Dr. Robert Pierce, CMO of OncoSec Medical, and David Berd, CMO of AVAX Technologies. The panel discussion was moderated by Dr. Mac Cheever, MD, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, who also served as the Keynote speaker at the conference.
TapImmune regrets any inconvenience to those who wished to hear the webcast; however, the circumstances were beyond our control. The Company has put the Maidstone presentation on its website at www.tapimmune.com.
Dr Glynn Wilson stated, "On a most positive note, the meeting was focussed around the latest immunotherapies in development and the future of cancer treatments. It was clear from the presentations and the comments of the key opinion leaders attending the meeting that the T-cell therapies of TapImmune are currently developing fit into the combination strategies believed to be the future of treatment regimens."
