Despite decades of research and therapeutic advances, cancer remains a global scourge and is currently the second leading cause of mortality. According to the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), in 2018, there were an estimated 17 million new cases worldwide with 9.5 million deaths. By 2040, those numbers are expected to climb to 27.5 million new cases and 16.3 million deaths (largely due to aging populations).

Despite these gloomy statistics, researchers also have made steady progress in developing anticancer therapeutics. The AACR reported that the overall U.S. cancer death rate declined by 27% from 1991 to 2016, saving more than 2.6 million lives. Further, in the period August 1, 2018 to July 31, 2019, the FDA approved 17 new anticancer therapeutics and expanded the indications of 10 approved anticancer therapeutics to additional types of cancer.

New strategies for developing anticancer therapeutics are featured in the program for the Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 15th annual Drug Discovery Chemistry meeting. Scheduled to take place August 24–28 in... Read more at the GEN – Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News Blog.
