New area of cancer research

The advent of immuno-oncology and personalized medicine has led to considerable advances in cancer research, but this has not been without its challenges due to the need to work with a global patient base.

Cerba Research is at the forefront of these advances, helping to shape and progress complex trials via the company’s worldwide network of industry-leading labs, its network of scientific experts spanning five continents and the availability of Cerba HealthCare’s comprehensive patient databases.

This combination of intelligence, custom assays and on-target protocol advice is key to helping accelerate programs to market.

Enhancing research with patient- and science-driven insight

Breakthroughs in treatments for both solid tumors and onco-hematological malignancies are more prevalent and impactful than ever before. New developments, including CAR-T cell therapies, combination therapies and checkpoint inhibitors, are rapidly gaining FDA approval.

More and more immune-based therapies are entering the clinical research funnel, offering virtually unlimited options in terms of specificity and design.

Despite these advances, clinical trial challenges remain driven by issues with efficacy analysis, toxicity management and follow-up. When considering and predicting safety profiles, it is important to consider parameters such as tissue distribution, tumor addiction and surface density.

These challenges are compounded by the problem of engaging sufficient resources to accomplish these studies.

Cerba Research is a leader in oncology clinical trials with over 35 years of experience. The company’s global solutions portfolio includes a diverse array of assays suitable for use at various stages of a clinical trial.

Customers can benefit from Cerba Research’s integrated immune therapy and central laboratory services to facilitate a wide range of clinical evaluations.
